Video.js 5.12.0 and 5.11.5 releases

Today, there are two releases of video.js. The first, is a patch release for the 5.11 branch. With this release, we're also updating 5.11 to stable and publishing it to the CDN.

The 5.12 release is a pre-release. It's a pretty big milestone too. Video.js finally outputs non-pre-built files so bundlers like webpack can decide what to do with them.

Notable Changes

This release is mostly a maintenance and build-change release.

  • Lint the entire codebase with our linter and run the linter as a pre-push git hook.
  • Fix CSS issues in IE8.
  • Updated dependencies using Greenkeeper.io
  • Make video.js provide ES5 source files for bundlers like webpack and browserify to use. This also makes video.js requirable in node.
    • Video.js still provides a pre-build dist files for the CSS and JavaScript for those that aren't using bundlers.
  • We've added a grunt task called check-translations that will output a list of translations missing from language files based on the en.json file which serves as a template. If you know another lanugage, this would be an easy and quick way to get started contriburing to video.js!

Known Issues

No new known issues but we have started looking into the known issues from the last release.

Looking forward

Going forward, we're looking into switching to standard-version. This will allow us to accept PRs more easily and have the changelog generated for us. Also, this will make it easier for other core contributors to accept PRs. We've previously been using the contrib tool for accepting PRs and have the CHANGELOG generated automatically at that time but getting new people started with it for merging PRs was not the easiest experience.
