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
release.

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
<http://bugs.dojotoolkit.org/query?resolution=fixed&milestone=1.7.3&order=priority>.

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
Schiemann
<http://www.sitepen.com/blog/2012/06/15/18-things-to-look-forward-to-in-dojo-1-8/>
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
<http://bugs.dojotoolkit.org/query?resolution=fixed&milestone=1.8&order=priority>.

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.

Regards,
