qooxdoo Version 1.0 of the free qooxdoo Ajax GUI framework is now available to download. qooxdoo, pronounced ['ku:ksdu:], uses JavaScript and offers almost everything needed for creating web applications with a desktop-like user interface. According to the developers, HTML, CSS or DOM knowledge is not required. The framework runs in all major browsers, such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera and Chrome, regardless of platform.

To get an idea of the framework, users can take a look at the playground environment or the sample application, which provide an interactive overview of qooxdoo's possibilities. The framework contains numerous widgets, layout managers and themes as well as tools said to cover the entire development process, including code validation, JavaScript compilation, unit testing, automated GUI testing and a debugging facility that is similar to Firebug.

The framework has primarily been developed by employees from 1&1 Internet in Germany. qooxdoo is available under a dual licence, allowing users to choose either the LGPL (Lesser General Public License) or the EPL (Eclipse Public License) depending on project requirements. Java developers will probably be interested in the recently announced QxWT, a project which integrates almost all of qooxdoo's features into the Google Web Toolkit (GWT).
