Dojo 1.10 release schedule, beta 1 now available

In preparation for the release of Dojo 1.10, trunk is now in feature freeze, which means this code is considered feature complete for Dojo 1.10. The release schedule is currently as follows:

  • May 13: Dojo 1.10.0-beta1
  • May 29: Release candidate 1 (note: if additional beta releases are necessary, each release will push this out by 1 week)
  • June 12: Final release (note: if additional rc releases are necessary, each release will push this out by 1 week)

We encourage you to grab the beta and help us find any bugs or regressions with your code base and report any issues you find by following our contributor workflow.

The documentation for 1.10 has not yet been built, though the API changes from 1.9 are minimal. Work in progress release notes are available to see a highlight of the additions we have made.

Thank you to everyone that has helped make this release a success, including the 61 contributors that have had code land in this release!

Dojo community day: July 5 near Zurich

It’s been far too long since we’ve had a Dojo community day or dojo/beer event in Europe. As such, we have planned one for Saturday, July 5th, in Brugg, Switzerland (near Zurich).

The event is free to attend. The schedule and details are available on the registration page.

The format will be a talk, an open Q&A session, time to hack and contribute to Dojo, and at some point we’ll break for lunch.

This event follows the SitePen Dojo Workshops which occur June 30 – July 4. We hope you’ll join us for the week and learn about Dojo, and then on Saturday work to help make Dojo better. Or if you cannot make the workshops, we at least hope you’ll join us for a fun Saturday event!

Case study: Peopleware

The large companies that use Dojo are widely known. This series features lesser known users of Dojo, and their stories. This time, we interview Adriaan Peeters from PeopleWare, a Belgian company that creates enterprise web applications. Adriaan is the project leader of the MealWare project.

Q: How did you first learn about Dojo?

A: This choice was made after weighing Dojo against its competitors and finding that it offered a good mix between maturity, feature set and community. Dojo is a comprehensive toolkit that includes UI components as well as an entire framework for architecting and building applications. We’re also convinced that Dojo offers a stable platform to develop rich enterprise applications that gives users the feeling they’re using a desktop application. That’s why we decided to introduce Dojo as the company standard.
