Hello all,

I'm delighted to announce the release of Scroller v1.1.0.

Since its introduction, Scroller has proven to be very useful for rendering large data sets with the minimum of overhead on the client-side due to its virtual scrolling implementation.

This v1.1 release of Scroller focuses on improving the experience for the end user, as well as addressing a number of bugs found in the 1.0.x series. Specifically Scroller now pre-buffers a much larger number of rows for scrolling, reducing the number of redraws required - and you can control this explicitly with the new "displayBuffer" parameter.

Also in v1.1 is better support for iOS devices, in particular showing a "Loading" message if the user scrolls past the current buffer - which can also be useful when using Scroller with server-side processing.

You can get the latest Scroller package from the downloads page ( http://datatables.net/download ), or directly here:
http://datatables.net/releases/Scroller-1.1.0.zip , and it will be included as part of the DataTables 1.9.2 package.

For anyone upgrading from a previous version of Scroller, please note that the file name has changed from Scroller.js to dataTables.scroller.js. This is for consistency with the other DataTables plug-ins and to keep like files together. The new CSS file can be included if you would like the same styling as the examples, but it is not mandatory for the operation of Scroller.

Regards,
Allan
