  • The new and greatly improved Dojo Grid, with full dojo.data integration
  • Enhancements to charting including tooltips, animations, events, legends, and several new chart types
  • doh.robot, providing unit testing integration with Selenium and Windmill
  • New features including but not limited to:
    • multi-file uploader
    • refined image widgets (Lightbox, Slideshow, etc.)
    • a fast XML parser
    • many new data stores
    • a faster way to include Google analytics
    • security improvements including windowName and dojox.secure
    • JSON (Path, Query, Referencing, and Schema)

This is only a small subset of the updates included and to really get an idea of the breadth of work gone into this release you need to check out Dojo Toolkit v1.2rc1 Release Notes.

Sitepen founder and Dojo team member Dylan Schiemann had this to say about the new release:

The Dojo Community and Contributors have worked tirelessly for the past 6 months, packing an incredible amount of improvements, performance fixes, enhancements, documentation, and more into this release. It’s our most polished, complete, fast, well-documented release ever. I’m fortunate to get to work with such a great community, and I applaud the outstanding effort that has gone into making Dojo extraordinary.

What widgets does dojo offer out of the box? I only found the grid widget, but it look pretty bad compared to what EXT JS has to offer.
