Rey Bango at Ajaxian says that “This is a â€œmust-haveâ€ for Dojo developers.”. I also enjoyed jdalton’s comment “I totally love this. I donâ€™t even use Dojo and I totally love this. Well done :)”.

Peter Higgins, who was quite involved in the development of the Toolbox, put his take up on dojotoolkit.org.
And for the German speakers among you, here’s a take on the Toolbox for you. Vielen dank!
Open-source participation helps SitePen amass an all-star team of Web developers.
SitePen is full of fantastic people, really. It’s a great example of a business built on the success of open source project leadership and contribution.
Intriguingly, Ajaxian seems to have the news first: Ajaxian Â» DWR joins the Dojo Foundation – Joe Walker joins SitePen. I haven’t used Java in 3 years, so I haven’t had a chance to use DWR, but it looks like a nicely designed API for doing Ajax and Comet in Java apps. Having Joe Walker join up at SitePen is great news indeed, and DWR is quite an addition to the Dojo Foundation.
Update: Ahh, that’s more like it. The word is officially out: the SitePen press release, the SitePen blog (which has considerably more w00ts than the press release) and Joe Walker himself announcing it.
