Dojo 1.8 Documentation Highlights

By on August 16, 2012 9:36 am

With Wednesday’s release of Dojo 1.8, there are many exciting improvements to check out!

Our top goal for this release was to significantly improve the quality of Dojo’s documentation. SitePen proudly contributed in the following areas:

  • Helped make many of the more than 500 fixes to our documentation based on community feedback (thank you!)
  • Helped improve the content found in the reference guide
  • Developed a brand new, extensible JavaScript-based documentation parser, which we use to generate output for the API viewer
  • Updated 70% of the existing Dojo tutorials to be accurate for Dojo 1.8. The remainder will be updated in the next few weeks.
  • Started working on 10 new tutorials, including an updated Ajax tutorial covering the new dojo/request API for Ajax requests.

Thanks for your ongoing suggestions and support. We look forward to your feedback on this release.
