Recently the Dojo team decided that this was all well and good, but the pragmatic reality was that the browser was where their users were using them, so it was time for a rewrite. From scratch they rebuilt a fast lean Dojo core that only has what you need. They kept the core philosophy, and the build system is still there, as well as the great widget system.
The end result is Dojo 1.0, a huge milestone for the project as they took 1.0 so seriously.
- Accessibility including keyboard navigation, low vision support, and ARIA markup for assistive technologies
- High performance grid widget supporting 100,000+ rows of data
- Browser-native 2-D and 3-D charting
- A full library of easy-to-use, attractive UI controls
- Universal data access for simple and fast data-driven widget development
- Internationalization with localizations provided for 13 major languages
- CSS-driven themes to make customization and extension simple
- Dojo Offline, based on Google Gears, which makes offline applications easy to build
- Support for the OpenAjax Alliance Hub 1.0 to guarantee interoperability with other toolkits
- Native 2-D and 3-D vector graphics drawing
- Access to many more widgets and extensions through the Dojo package system
Take a look at the full press release or watch our chat with Alex about the release. Alex is always great to talk too as he is very honest, and carries the torch nicely for the Open Web. Congrats to the entire Dojo team.
