Improvements to Dojo in trunk

This week’s development efforts were focused primarily on stabilizations and improvements to Dijit by Bill Keese (IBM). Adam Peller (IBM) made a number of translation resource commits for various Dijits. Mike Wilcox
contributed fixes for the UpgradeBar and FileUploader. Jared Jurkiewicz (IBM) further improved the Editor widget and its plug-ins. Finally, Doug Hays (IBM) contributed additional fixes for minor bugs.

A couple of minor changes were made to the API, moving a couple of Dijit APIs to Dojo Core to make them easier to use outside of Dijit:

  • dojo.window.get() // Get window object associated with document doc
  • dojo.window.getBox() // Returns the dimensions and scroll position of the viewable area of a browser window
