I am pleased to announce I just cut the official 1.4.0 beta2 release, available for early testing. Please give it a spin, test against existing applications and report any issues back to us at bugs.dojotoolkit.org.
Barring any unforeseen regressions we should have the final release ready on schedule for a “near-Thanksgiving” release (in the past, though not intentionally, we’ve always released our finals on-or-around American national holidays, and 1.4 is looking to be the same).
This is BETA, so there may be a couple hiccups. Please report them immediately so that we can push a solid release candidate in a timely fashion. There are loads of new goodies (outlined in the release notes) in this release, so jump in and play with some tests! 1.4 has many subtle changes, making it the fastest, most performant Dojo to date. Hope you enjoy it!
As always, we’ve gone to great pains to maintain backwards compatibility with previous versions of Dojo. If we missed something, please let us know.
