It's that time of the month again, the monthly JSter time that is. We started this tradition a month ago and intend to keep at it. Compared to last time we changed the format a little bit. Now it's more of an aggregate of our Twitter feed. It can be very difficult to keep up with the fast moving scene and this little contribution of ours hopefully helps in that.
The service itself grew steadily during the past month. We refreshed the outlook a little bit and kept on doing small things here and there. And of course the amount of libraries we index keeps on growing. We also had our very first guest post by Olaf Horstmann. Check out his awesome article Tools to Package Your HTML5 App for Mobile Devices. Thanks for your contribution Olaf!
