Just a quick note to inform anyone who's following Dojo and our
involvement with it.
As of last week, the Dojo trunk is in feature freeze in preparation for
releasing 0.4, and it looks like all of the patches and tests I
submitted have been accepted.
Contributions were in two areas:
1. All our code for Date.add and Date.diff (now dojo.date.add and
dojo.date.diff), plus a large number of tests including things like leap
year and DST leaps.
2. Several bug fixes and a lot of tests for dojo.date.strftime.
3. A quickie dojo.date.getTimezoneName function and accompanying tests.
Extra code for the color-conversion libraries dojo.color.hsv2rgb and
dojo.color.rgb2hsv to allow input in the same standard ranges you see in
GIMP/Photoshop. This will help us with color palettes for multiple
calendars. I also contributed a bunch of tests and some fixes for bugs
flushed out by the tests.
That's it for this go-round.
I'm really excited that we could get involved with Dojo not just as
consumers, but as participants -- so the code we're building our app on
can now provide benefit to a larger group of developers and users. And
of course in the long run that will also contribute to a much more solid
base of code for us to work with.
I've also been talking with some of the guys about the question of
timezones, and there seem to be some interesting ideas cooking there
that might prove good for us in the Cosmo Web UI code.
