Latests News about the DOM in Mozilland
|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
|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.
