jQuery Roundup

Welcome to the jQuery roundup 33. You can send your plugins and articles
in for review through our contact form or
@dailyjs.

Face Detection

This jQuery face
detection
plugin by
Jay Salvat can detect faces in images using a Canvas. The actual face
detection code is by Liu Liu -- the plugin provides a jQuery interface
to it:

var coords = $('#myPicture').faceDetection();

There's a demo if you'd like to
try it out.

2D Transformations

2D Transformations by Grady provides a simple API to CSS3 transformations, and degrades to Microsoft's matrix filter where
appropriate. The Transform
wiki
has details on the
client-side requirements and implementation, as well as code examples.

It can work with jQuery's CSS API as well providing its own method:

$('#example').transform({rotate: '30deg'});
$('#example').css({rotate: '30deg'});

jQuery.splitter

I've made two web apps recently that use resizable panels, but
unfortunately I found jQuery.splitter
after I wrote my own code to do the same thing.

I found it easy to implement my own version of this, but Krikus's
version has a lot of features, like disabling text selection during
dragging, and minimum and maximum sizes for the panels.
