Emmet v1.0 is out

I’m happy to announce that after more than six months of development the Emmet (formerly Zen Coding) v1.0 is officially released. Maybe you’ve already been using Emmet for months, but only now, after numerous bug fixes and improvements, I can say that it works as expected.

What has been changed since the Zen Coding?

At first, the project name has been changed. “Emmet” is gonna be brand name for new tools and not all of them will be related to “coding”.

Secondly, the project has received official web-site and extensive documentation about all available features.

Thirdly, improved CSS support: you can write property values directly in the abbreviation, create gradients and vendor-prefixed properties. Also, user’s reports about lengthy and hard-to-remember CSS abbreviations were considered and now Emmet utilizes fuzzy search for CSS abbreviations.

Here is a list of other significant changes:
