I just added version 1.5.0 to SourceForge.net. This newer version includes a new function that one can use to convert a URI to lowercase. This is important to call tld() because the URI is going to be compared to top level domain names that are all in lowercase.

The new function is called tld_domain_to_lowercase(). It takes a string as input and returns a copy in lowercase. The function understands encoded URIs and UTF-8 as expected by the standard.

Got CSS Preprocessor version 1.0.6 published.

This fixes a crashing problem with the minus operator (the following: "field: -;" crashes version 1.0.5 and earlier.) But that was not the point, just a side effect of writing many more tests.

The new system supports the @return at-command which means user defined functions work.

I wrote the necessary tests to check the system defined external functions. They all get checked. The result is that a couple were moved to internal functions so they would work (unique_id() and percentage() which cannot otherwise be implemented) and I added ...

The CSS Preprocessor adds the capability to write complex expressions and functions to use in your CSS files.

This says if $color represents the color white, then use 33px, otherwise use 145px.

This works great in all cases where the true and false expressions are both calculable. If one of the expressions is to generate an error, then the if() function cannot be used. In this case, you want to use the ?: operator instead.
