Hi everyone,

I’m pleased to offer not one, not two, but THREE new Dojo releases for
your consumption.

Dojo 1.4.4 is now available at
<http://download.dojotoolkit.org/release-1.4.4/>. This is a maintenance
release that backports browser fixes to add support for Internet
Explorer 9 and Firefox 4+. Information on which fixes were backported
can be found at <http://bugs.dojotoolkit.org/ticket/15508>. This is
basically identical to the Dojo 1.5.2 release that happened…whenever
that happened! A little while ago. :) Thanks to kgf for managing this

Dojo 1.7.3 is now available at
<http://download.dojotoolkit.org/release-1.7.3/>. This is a bugfix
release that resolves several issues with the 1.7 branch of Dojo,
including issues with the i18n subsystem, legacy modules, and the build
system running on Node.js. It also fixes a significant performance
regression from 1.6 when loading many legacy modules and includes
bugfixes for several other components. The full list of fixes can be
found at

Finally, Dojo 1.8.0b1 is now available at
<http://download.dojotoolkit.org/release-1.8.0b1/>. This is the first
beta of the new Dojo 1.8 release and includes several exciting new
features. A blog post written by interim supreme overlord Dylan
provides an overview of many of the most significant new features and
enhancements. There are close to 700 new features, enhancements, and bug
fixes in this release, including a brand new documentation parser
(written by yours truly) that will make the API browser work correctly
again. The full list of changes can be found at

Dojo 1.8 is on track at this point for a release in mid-to-late July.
Beta 2, if necessary, will be released in about three weeks. CDN
releases for Dojo 1.4.4, Dojo 1.5.2, and Dojo 1.7.3 have been submitted
to Google. I will post again once those are made available.

OK, that’s it from me! Have a great solstice weekend.
