Dojo 1.6 Released!

Now available, and ready for your web app!

Testing and Compatibility

In total, we’ve resolved more than 600 issues since Dojo 1.5. The DOH test suite of tens of thousands of tests passes in all officially supported browsers:

  • Chrome: 8.x and newer
  • Firefox: 3.5.x and 3.6.x
  • Internet Explorer: 6, 7, and 8
  • Opera: 11.x
  • Safari: 4.1.x and 5.0.x

The code was completed before Internet Explorer 9 and Firefox 4 were released. That said, we’ve fixed all known issues with these browsers as well (testing was done with IE9 RC and Firefox 4 RC1).

Dojo is also tested with popular mobile browsers including iOS 4.x, Android 2.x and 3.x, and passes for all supported features in Dojo Mobile, and most features throughout Dojo. Work is also near completion for support with Blackberry 6 on mobile phones and the PlayBook.

    That are really great news! We have integrated Dojo 1.6 into one of our products with almost no effort.
    But what about a maintenance release for Dojo 1.5? There is still another product of us stuck with that release, and we’d like to get IE9 support in there. The 1.5.1rc1, available for download since more than a month without a final release appearing, doesn’t seem to be IE9-capable either…
    Any hope that there will be an IE9-compatible Dojo 1.5 in near future?

    seriously, I got to ring up my client and say: “about that list of showstopper issues you sent through last night -I just tried the new Dojo release and the issues ALL went away”

    brilliant, thankyou -take the afternoon off :-)

    question: I had an idea that better support for client side templating/content generation etc was on the 1.6 list -was I just dreaming or did it fall off (or did it quietly happen..)
