After nine months of development, the Dojo Toolkit developers have announced the availability of version 1.4 of their popular open source modular JavaScript library. In addition to closing nearly 1,000 bugs, the focus of the latest release is primarily stability and performance.

Dojo 1.4.0 final features a new dojo.cache API for caching data from files and newly exposed long standing "private" API's, including dojo.Animation and dojo.contentHandlers. TaskSpeed has been updated to use the latest Dojo base dojo.js and dojo.declare has been given a "major overhaul", making it much faster. The developers note users upgrading from previous versions shouldn't have any problems and that they are "moving onward to 1.5 for Q2 and have a host of other goodies lined up for the coming months".

More details about the release can be found in the release notes. Dojo 1.4 is available to download and documentation is provided. Dojo is released under a BSD License and version 2.1 of the Academic Free License.

The Dojo Foundation is a non-profit organisation that supports and promotes the Dojo Toolkit and is the home of other open web projects including cometD, DWR, Sizzle, and Lucid Desktop.
