[BUG] ReferenceError: window is not defined on datatables.net v1.13.6

Description of problem:
I created a Next.js 11 app with node.js v14. In the build process, I got ReferenceError. It seems the source code calls window when it's undefined. The problem likely occurs at line 57 of the source code.

Error messages shown:

Build error occurred

    Thank you. It looks like the logic for if (typeof window !== 'undefined') { on 41 is inverted. It should be returning a function if window is undefined, which would let you then execute that function, passing in the window object.

    What's a bit odd is that I've already fixed this. It looks like the dist repo sync hasn't completed for some reason. Looking into it...

    Yup - the sync had fallen out of sync unfortunately. It is back to how it should be now. I'll tag up a release (1.13.7) on Monday.
