Latests News about the DOM in Mozilland

Date Comment
July 25, 2003 Almost two years later, I return to you briefly :-) Very importantly we have the Mozilla DOM Reference by Ian Oeschger. Next up is the fact that the DOM in Mozilla doesn't get much attention at the moment for the simple reason that there are more important things to fix in the rest of Gecko. A big thanks to everybody who helped with the DOM implementation! Of course help is still appreciated, and we think DOM Level 3 coding could start this very minute, if someone is interested.
July 11, 2001 Offset* properties, which had been implemented for compatibility with IE, now match much more closely IE's behavior. This also means that they don't follow the W3C spec. For the correct behavior, please use the getComputedStyle method. The tracking bug was bug 81290.
June 23, 2001 DOM Objects constructors have not been accessible since the landing of the XPCDOM branch. Johnny Stenback is currently working on fixing this. See bug 83433 for the status.
May 25, 2001 Jonas Sicking has finished the implementation of the TreeWalker. The tracking bug for this feature is bug 82625.
May 20, 2001 Peterv fixed the infamous bug 7515 "Dynamically adding LINK-ed or PI-ed style sheets does nothing". This is a GREAT step forward, for web developers and for XSLT.
May 19, 2001 Johnny Stenback implemented the onLoad attribute for iframe and frame in HTML. The onload event will now fire when a document inside a frame or iframe finishes loading.
May 18, 2001 Vidur checked in the fix for bug 18843 : "Dynamically added <script> not executable". This was a very requested feature!
May 15, 2001 Jonas Sicking has begun work on the implementation of the DOM Level 2 Traversal interfaces. He will focus on the TreeWalker first. Thanks Jonas!
May 9, 2001 Johnny Stenback, John Bandhauer, and Mitchell Stoltz landed the XPCDOM branch this day. This fixes over 30 (!!) bugs in our implementation, and reduces the amount of code tremendously.
