While the majority of our attention goes into modern Dojo, today we’ve released Dojo Toolkit 1.16.0 which includes a few minor updates contributed over the past few months, as well as patch update releases 1.15.1, 1.14.4, 1.13.5, 1.12.6, and 1.11.8.
While most of our attention recently has gone into the new modern Dojo framework releases, we are still maintaining and updating versions of Dojo 1.x as we receive pull requests and updates.
Today we are pleased to announce version 1.14 of the Dojo Toolkit, as well as backported releases 1.13.1, 1.12.4, 1.11.6, and 1.10.10. Note that we will no longer be shipping updated releases prior to 1.10, though you may of course still build your own version from source. Patches are still backported, but the time to push a release for each version is non-trivial.
As these releases are smaller in nature, it is fairly easy to look at the commit history to see what has changed. For example, the Dojo package commit history has details about the Dojo package.
We did receive two small security related reports. These issues are unlikely to impact most of our users in production, but are worth reviewing:
Dojo 2 beta 4 was recently released! Read more about the release on the Dojo 2 beta 4 blog post! The new website for Dojo 2+ also has a number of tutorials and examples to help you get started with Dojo 2.
Also note that Dojo 1.13 and point releases to 1.12, 1.11, and 1.10 were also recently released and are now also available on the Google CDN.
There are a number of Dojo events this winter and spring. Some of these events are still tentative, so we’ll add links once they are confirmed. We hope to meet you at one of these events. Let us know if there’s an event you would like to host in your area.
Dojo Community Day
A Dojo community day is planned, but the details are not yet available.
Conferences we’re planning to attend and/or deliver talks.
The large companies that use Dojo are widely known. This series features lesser known users of Dojo, and their stories. Eight months ago, we conducted a case study about the TELL ME project with Stefano Bianchi from Softeco Sismat, an ICT Italian company. Here we have followed with up Stefano to get an update on their progression from desktop web app to mobile with Dojo.
We recently hosted a Dojo Community Day in Brugg, Switzerland on the Saturday following a week of Dojo workshops. We had about 25 Dojo users and committers join us from England, France, Netherlands, Germany, Romania, Austria, and Switzerland for a fun day of hacking and discussions about current and future directions of Dojo.

Q: How did you first learn about Dojo?
A: Through Google / Stack Overflow. I suspect my “discovery” of Dojo was a bit different to the norm, as prior to 2013 I had never really done any Web Development. Up until then I was predominantly a C++ Developer, some Java and a smattering of C#. Initially I wanted to knock together a single page proof of concept, consisting of a code editor (CodeMirror), a result view (HTML Table) and an “activity graph” (ActiveX Control) and wanted something that would handle the layout, resizing and ideally something with splitters – after a few searches online I found the Border Container Docs and away I went! Shortly after, I added a Tab Container and switched to using the basic Grid.
