The Road to Dojo 2

Thu, 04/16/2015 - 21:42

“When will Dojo 2 be released?” That’s pretty much the number one question we’ve been asked about Dojo since Dojo 1.0 was released in 2007. Over the past seven plus years, we have made numerous updates and improvements, while preserving a high level of stability for our users.

What’s in a number?

Our shift to AMD in Dojo 1.7 was a massive change that could have been called Dojo 2.0, but because we kept backwards compatibility to help developers transition over to AMD syntax, it felt right to call it 1.7. We continued building on that groundwork releasing 1.8, 1.9 and 1.10!

What should Dojo 2 do?

We have spent many months collecting thoughts and ideas from our users as well as reviewing the current and near future state of the web, to decide what Dojo 2 should and should not do.

Moving to the next major version number is an opportunity for us to assess our strengths and weaknesses, and to formulate a vision for 2.0.

The Roadmap

We’ve added a new section to our (brand new!) site, the Dojo 2 Roadmap. On the roadmap you will find a proposal for each of the planned Dojo 2 core packages. We will continue to update the Roadmap as we progress through the various phases of development for Dojo 2.

Get Involved!

We are very interested in community feedback on the package proposals. Some of the proposals are very polished, and others are less complete and noted as such. If you are interested, now is the time to take a deep look at these proposals!

We plan to discuss packages at each of the upcoming Dojo weekly meetings, IRC, 9am Pacific time on Tuesdays, irc.freenode.net, #dojo-meeting. For April 21st, we will start with the loader and platform packages. If you cannot make the meeting, or have feedback you want to provide prior to then about a specific package, please leave comments within each package proposal document found in the roadmap. We don’t want to lose your feedback, so the best place to offer that feedback is within the proposal documents.

On Widgets…

The roadmap currently excludes Dijit and other user interface elements, as we’re aiming to get core planning finalized and development underway, and then determine the path forward for user interfaces and widgets. The team at IBM has been working in parallel on an effort called Delite and Deliteful, and we hope that we will be able to efficiently align efforts in the near future.

Thanks!

We look forward to working together to release Dojo 2 in the near future. Thank you for your ongoing support and interest!
