Dojo 1.1.0 Released
Dojo announced today the availability of 1.1.0.
I've been toying with Dojo off-and-on for almost a year now. It's the most framework-y of the various JS toolkits I've tried, and I particularly appreciate its modularity. (That said, it can lead to a lot of HTTP requests to your site if you don't create a targetted bundle with the modules you need.)
The 1.1.0 release has me pretty excited, as it finally is doing something
most other JS frameworks have been doing for some time: its XHR requests now
send the "X-Requested-With: XMLHttpRequest" header, which allows it to
conform to the
isXmlHttpRequest() method in Zend Framework's
request object. This makes it much easier to provide a standard mechanism in
your server-side code for detecting AJAX requests, allowing context
switching to be automated.
