Hello all,

I'm pleased to release the latest beta of DataTables 1.5. There are a number of new features in this release, and a bit of a clean up in various parts of this code. Full release notes are available from the download page. So these new features:

- Support for grouping column information through colspan and rowspan in the header - http://datatables.net/1.5-beta/examples/advanced_init/complex_header.html
- Server-side processing column ordering need not now be in a fixed order (DataTables will automatically re-order the returned data if required - http://datatables.net/1.5-beta/examples/server_side/column_ordering.html
- Forced sorting is now possible through the parameter aaSortingFixed (which has the same syntax as aaSorting). This allows grouping of rows - http://datatables.net/1.5-beta/examples/advanced_init/row_grouping.html

Enjoy!
Allan

    I click on platform => sort by engine

    @grobob: Awesome - glad you like the complex header example. I'm quite pleased with that :-). Quite useful for complex data tables. Thanks for spotting the error with the sorting - that was due to my change in handling of the TH elements. I've fixed this now, and just re-released beta 5 (a little naughty I know... ;-) ).

    @andrew_m: My pleasure. Hope that does the trick for you. If you think of any other information that the server-side should know in order to correctly respond, let me know.

    Allan
