Release Notes and Documentation

Dojo 1.9 is primarily a stability and bug fix release, with over 700 issues resolved. Read the Dojo 1.9 release notes for the complete list of what’s new and improved in 1.9. API features and enhancements primarily occurred within the following areas:

  • Mobile and touch events
  • Dijit support for mobile
  • Dijit enhancements and additions
  • BlackBerry 10
  • IE 10/Windows Phone 8, Windows Surface/RT
  • iOS and Android theme refinements
  • dojox/charting and dojox/gfx
  • dojox/app
  • dojox/calendar
  • Source maps

The tutorials, reference guide, and API viewer have also been updated for the 1.9 release.

Grids

While the source code is still available for DataGrid and EnhancedGrid, these modules are formally deprecated. We instead recommend that you use dgrid or gridx.

What’s Next? 1.9.1, 1.10, and 2.0

We continue working on Dojo 2.0 core. We continue to issue periodic maintenance releases on 1.4+, primarily to fix issues when new browsers are released. We will likely will have a 1.10 release for anything that might change or enhance an API, or backport key improvements made for 2.0.

We’ve also just released 1.8.4, which is now available for download, as well as via the CDN.

Thanks!

We hope you’ll find Dojo 1.9 to be exceptionally stable and reliable. Please let us know if you run into any issues by opening a ticket. If you find a problem in the documentation, you can also provide feedback via the link at the bottom of every page. We also encourage you to get involved, to help improve Dojo and to work on Dojo 2.0. We hope you find value in using Dojo 1.9!

    Hi,
    Does the dojo v1.9 provides support for IOS 8?

  6. Heffalumpur says:

    Hi, our corporate mobile site using dojo 1.9.0. And we discover that dojo touch stops working with iOS 8. Are you dojo guys “on the ball” on this issue? My boss is a litle nervous that we might end up with a useless site when everyone got iOS 8 :-/

  7. Heffe says:

    our site stops working when testing it on iOS8 Beta3. Using dojo 1.9.0. Our guess is the dojo/touch mess it up.
    Are you guys start looking into the challenges around Dojo versus iOS 8 ?

  8. @Heffe, yes, see https://bugs.dojotoolkit.org/ticket/18168 . We expect a 1.10.1 release to coincide with the release of iOS8.
