Sass 2.4 will now be Sass 3.0

Posted February 1, 2010

It’s been more than half a year since the release of Haml and Sass 2.2, and a lot of work has been going on in preparation for the new version. A lot has changed in these past few months, too: there’s been an explosion of interest in Sass and other CSS compilers, a huge amount of work has been put into Compass, and the community is generally abuzz with ideas and excitement.

Because of this surge of energy, the goals for the next version of Sass have shifted dramatically. When we released version 2.2, we were expecting the biggest addition to version 2.4 to be some output-optimization features. Now those have been pushed to a later release in favor of much more major improvements. I’ve talked about some of these improvements already, such as a much more powerful way of dealing with colors and auto-compilation of CSS files. And there are even bigger, more exciting ones in the works.

Since we’re making such huge changes – ones that will in some ways reshape the face of Sass - a minor change from 2.2 to 2.4 feels inadequate. Thus, the next release of Sass will be version 3.0.
