New tools for web design and development: March 2012

This month has produced an incredibly varied set of new development tools. Not just in terms of specialisation but also in respect of scale.

There were big releases from Adobe (Shadow) and Sencha (Touch 2). These rubbed shoulders with much smaller projects like Dustin Curtis' Open Brand Framework and "The Responsinator", sent from the future to help designers unify responsive projects.

And then there were tools for power users such as Fabric Engine, which puts multi-threading at the disposal of the web programmer, or BreakoutJS, a system for interacting with real-world inputs.

Plus, there were plenty we didn't have space for. Truly, this is a broad spectrum. And that's a good thing. So often the web, like everything else, falls pray to trends. Feels like there must have been a good deal of original thinking going on to generate this lot. It's refreshing to see a bit of variety. Enjoy.
