[SOLVED] DataTables with requirejs problem

I have a problem with new version of DataTable.
All is ok with 1.9.4.

I get "TypeError: $(...).dataTable is not a function" :((

Here's how I use it:

baseUrl: "/medias/js/",
paths: {
"jquery": "//ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/jquery/jquery-2.1.0.min",
// "datatable": "//ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/jquery.dataTables/1.9.4/jquery.dataTables.min",
"datatable": "//datatables.net/download/build/nightly/jquery.dataTables.js?_=99823af74ba032ba950452c707888b11",
"css": "libs/css.min",
shim: {
"datatable": {
deps: ["jquery", "css!/medias/css/dataTable.css"]
map: {
"*": {
"css": "libs/css"

And the calling inside php script:
requirejs(["datatable"], function() {
var oTable= $('#Histo').dataTable({
"bInfo": false,
"bAutoWidth": false,
"bFilter": false,
"aaData": [ <?php echo $aaData; ?>],
"aoColumns": [<?php echo $aoColumns; ?>],

    DataTables identifies itself as a named module, so you need to use the same name - in this case `datatables` . http://live.datatables.net/deluluk/1/edit .

    This behaviour matches how jQuery registers itself as a named module and I felt it was that safest way given that the extensions can also be loaded this way.

    Everything works perfectly like that.

    I wish to congratulate you, your job is just perfect.
