Subject Re: Dojo plugin update using 1.1.0 framework
Date Sun, 06 Apr 2008 00:35:11 GMT
Agreed.  The Dojo 0.43 plugin in Struts2.1.1 contains significant 
improvements over the Dojo 0.40 tags bundled in 2.0.x.  It's worth 
releasing as-is and I'd give it a +1 today.

It sounds like there's enough people interested to complete a Dojo 1.x 
plugin.  I also think it's worth creating a googlecode project for it 
until it reaches a certain level of maturity.  The benefit of googlecode 
over the sandpit is the low barrier to contribute and informal releases.
