Trident 1.2 official release

April 14th, 2010

It is a great pleasure to announce the availability of the final release or version 1.2 of Trident animation library (code-named Cookie Jar). The major milestone for this release is moving Substance 6.0 to use Trident – along with validating the library performance and flexibility to support a wide variety of UI animations. Trident 1.2 has also added a few new APIs to address a few common application requirements:
