Probably everyone saw that the public IE beta was released last week
It only runs on Vista or Windows 7, so XP users are out of luck.
I checked dojo, it is getting some failures in core and in dijit. Didn't
try anything in dojox/ but there are probably problems there too.
Not sure what we want to do about IE9... we need to support it for the
dojo 1.6 release, not sure if anyone wants to volunteer to backport the
support to dojo 1.5 or earlier (although I'm sure our users would
As for upgrading dojo 1.6 to run on IE9, there are two time-saving
options (at least for core), if the FD branch gets finished soon:
1. wait for FD branch to be finished and merge into trunk
2. use tests in FD branch to tell us which dojo.isIE references should
be changed to dojo.isIE<9.
Other support options include:
3. change as many dojo.isIE references as possible to dojo.isIE<9
(theoretically IE is mostly standards compliant now)
4. only fix the stuff that's broke, leaving IE9 following the IE
specific code paths wherever they still work.
What do y'all think?
