There's a lot of new functionality in this release of jMaki. Performance enhancements, new widgets, upgrades to Yahoo 2.5 and Dojo 1.0.2, documentation and the new jMaki webtop are just some of what you will find.
There's a lot of new functionality in the developer release of jMaki 1.1 . Performance enhancements, new widgets, upgrades to Yahoo 2.5 and Dojo 1.0.2, documentation and the new jMaki webtop are just some of what you will find.
The team has been busy creating new widgets such as a flow widget, bread crumbs, tag cloud and carousel are new. Thanks to the awesome work by SitePen, all jMaki native widgets have 2 new themes. Default theme is kame and also available is ocean. Finally, we have updated the jmaki-charting widget lib to support Google and Yahoo charts as well.
Yahoo 2.5 and Dojo 1.0.2 toolkits have been integrated and we support both Dojo .4.3 and 1.0.2 widgets in the same page. We also have brought back and improved the widget gallery .
We want to add more and more documentation in this release. Currently we have updated the Getting Started Guide for JSP and are working on the JSF version. The PHP version will follow soon. There are some new blogs on loading blog feeds like feedburner into a widget and supporting GWT with jMaki . Also see Arun's blog, jMaki on Rails . Finally much of the website has been translated to Japanese. Of course, we will be writing more documentation before this release goes final.
Finally, we are working on a new widget called jMaki webtop. The code is not yet available but will be soon. For now we have deployed it on jmaki.com so you can play around with jmaki webtop . You will notice that the widgets in webtop are the same widgets that are available to build jMaki applications. You will also notice that events can be sent and received in webtop just like jMaki web applications. Play around with the webtop and let us know what you think.
