New Version of qooxdoo Released

For those who follow Open Source JavaScript framework, there are two new releases of 1.2.2 and 1.3.  There are quite a few improvements upon the previous version.  Here is just a sample of the upgrades for the framework.

If you were looking for an easier way to design virtual widgets, then the virtual list functionality will be a welcomed feature for you.  As a programmer, you will be able to create lists and group and filter them as you wish.  Through using this feature, you may also be able to reduce the amount of memory that you used to require prior.  Any way you look at it, a welcomed feature.

If you simply had no complaints about the widgets that existed prior to the new release, then that’s okay also.  The widgets that were part of the prior version weren’t changed much.  They may have been upgraded for speed, like SplitPane, for example.  However, many of the widgets were not changed, just tweaked a little to make the code a little easier to maintain.

There is an experimental widget named Testrunner2.  This new version, something that may very well replace Testrunner, has an HTML-only interface, among other upgrades.  Testrunner2 may have more capabilities to run tests on mobile devices, so this functionality may make the former version obsolete.

Another feature that is worth mentioning is the built-in Simulator.  Tests should be easier to excute, at the very least.  For the most part, Simulator will save time.

While you are perusing all of the different features that the new version boasts, make sure to visit  You will be able to view the tutorials at your own pace.  In addition, the tutorials are easy to follow, so whatever your level, you will have no problem learning.  Happy coding.
