i'd like to start by saying thanks for an awsome library!

Now to the problem:

I have a navigation menu which should display a submenu when hovering a link.
This works fine but when i drag the mouse over multiple links the animation displaying the submenu continues which looks bad
go ahead and try in the codepen: ).
How can i make the animation stop?
I did try to set tl.clear() like this, in both the mouseenter and mouseleave functions : 

.to(".activeMenu ul", 0.25, {autoAlpha:1})
.to(".activeMenu ul li", 0.25,{autoAlpha:1, ease:Power0.easeInOut}); 

But then the ul remains visible.

Any help is much appriciated, thank you and keep up the good work!

That's because you are adding new tween into same timeline every time your mouse enters or leaves. And timeline waits for previous animation to finish before it starts playing next animation. Simpler way would be to use TweenMax or Timeline inside the event.
