Dojo Toolkit 1.3 Released

The 1.3 version of the Dojo toolkit is finally out. The main focus of this release has been browser compatibility (particularly IE 8 and Chrome) and speed. According to Dojo-reported numbers on the TaskSpeed benchmark, Dojo is the fastest JavaScript toolkit on common DOM operations, at least twice as fast as other JavaScript toolkits. Of course, all the usual caveats about micro-benchmarking apply, but the speed increase is nevertheless quite impressive.

Simultaneous with the Dojo 1.3 release is the release of the PlugD, a library allows Dojo developers to mimic some of the popular aspects of jQuery (method chaining, as well as many similarly-named convenience methods).
