Warning to Spry folks upgrading to 1.5

This post is more than 2 years old.

One of the shortcuts that Spry borrowed from prototype was this:

var someitem = $("idofitem");

In order to avoid conflicts with folks using Spry and Prototype or other frameworks, this syntax has been changed:

var someitem = Spry.$("idofitem");

I saw this in the release notes, but Peter noted how it had tripped him up so I thought I'd warn folks.
