Less 2.0.0-b2 released

Less is a CSS pre-processor, meaning that it extends the CSS language, adding features that allow variables, mixins, functions and many other techniques that allow you to make CSS that is more maintainable, themable and extendable. Less runs inside Node, in the browser and inside Rhino. There are also many 3rd party tools that allow you to compile your files and watch for changes.

Less 2.0.0-b2 update

  • Imports are now sequenced and so are consistent (previously some complex projects might end up with occasional different orderings)
  • Imports with variables are better supported – variables can be specified in sub imports
  • Support for rebeccapurple
  • Browser can now accept options as attributes on the script tag and the link tags
  • adding a .less file extension is done in the abstract file manager so it the behaviour can be overridden by certain file managers
  • Fixed a bug where unquoted urls beginning // e.g. url(//file/file.less) would be incorrectly interpreted (bug introduced in b-1)
  • lessc plugins can be a function, used as a constructor as well as an object – this to allow the plugin more flexibility to be used programattically

The easiest way to install Less on the server, is via npm, the node.js package manager, as so:

$ npm install -g less
