The highly anticapted next major version of Fusebox has finally been released to the website.
Fusebox 5.5 allows you to use the Fusebox applications without using XML, which should please many people.
Instead of fusebox.xml it checks conventional places for your circuits, and instead of circuit.xml it can either use CFCs, where each function is a fuseaction, or just a directory, where each file is a fuseaction.
It also brings support for dynamic do to both xml and non-xml configuration, which is a feature I've really wanted on a couple of occasions.
Get it while it's hot...
I have created a simple custom verb which allows you to link specified resource files from circuit.xml, without having to go to the bother of writing it all in a script and including it.
For example, you can do this:
And it will convert that and place the following inside your HTML head:
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/res/bubbles.css"/>
This should be useful if you have a lot of different circuits that all have unique styles and scripts, and you'd rather avoid putting lots of conditional statements in your layout pages.
