jScrollPane 1.2 released

I’ve just released a new version of jScrollPane – my jQuery plugin for cross-browser customisable scrollbars. It’s been a long time since the plugin has been updated and this release contains a number of significant improvements:
  • a jScrollPane now correctly scrolls when you tab to a focusable element within it [example]
  • a jScrollPane can now automatically re-initialise itself when images inside it load [example]
  • external (and internal) links to an anchor within a jScrollPane now correctly scroll the jScrollPane [example]
  • defaults settings are now user-settable [example]
In addition to these changes, jScrollPane now has a new home on googlecode. This makes it easier for people to keep up to date with the latest version and more importantly it makes it easier for me to track bug reports and issues with jScrollPane (something that was basically impossible on the jQuery plugins site). As you can see, there is already a number of issues raised (one of which has high priority) so there may well be a bug fix release soon. In the meantime, it would be good to get people testing the new release and seeing if I broke anything else while implementing these changes…


jScrollPane 1.2.1 was released very shortly after 1.2 to fix a fairly serious bug which prevented links within the scroll pane from working correctly. As always, the googlecode site has the latest version.
