Release Notes

Fixed Firefox double-pointerdown problem

NOTE: POINTER_TYPE_XXX constant variables are removed as of v1.3.1 as the specification doesn't have them. Please use strings (including "mouse" / "touch" / "pen") instead of those constants to identify pointer types.

Reviews for this release

Very nice release, I have been working to remove duplicating events on touch devices. Usually preventdefault does the trick, but not on android webview, at least not yet. I had came up with very similar solution for this, but just in case I have checked if there is an update for handjs. You have saved me some time and effort :). Although the problem still exists for pointerover for mouse beeing simulated by touch, which leads to phantom pointerout event for mouse type pointer on touch as well. Also android browser does fire pointerover and pointermove mouse events even before touch events happen to occur. Although most likely you already know those issues. Good luck and keep it up! :)

Hi, Harazi :) I just released new v1.3.3 preventing some phantom pointerover/out/enter/leave events. Would you try the new version and tell me whether it fixes the bug? And yes, I have found that pointerover/move occurs event before any touch events on Android AOSP-based browsers, but v1.3.3 unfortunately does not fix that problem. If you have any brilliant idea to fix that, please share it so that we can make some improvements :) Please submit an issue if you have any further problems using Hand.js! Thank you for reviewing!
