Dojo 0.9 released

Posted by Shane O'Sullivan on August 22, 2007

The latest version of the Dojo Ajax Toolkit has just been released into the wild. Version 0.9 is a very streamlined progression of the toolkit, with many of the less essential features pushed out to another project, DojoX, and the Dojo widgets given their own project, Dijit.

Another big change is the the main JavaScript file in Dojo, dojo.js, is no longer customisable. It now contains the most common features required by most web developers, and nothing more. As a result, it is far smaller than previous incarnations, down to ~24k when gzipped.

Some resources:

James Burke has written up a very informative post about what exactly is baked into the default build of dojo.js, which you can find at . Well worth a read.
