Features

Support for new features in ArcGIS Server 10.1 including:

Note: Beta versions of ArcGIS Server 10.1 (Beta 1, Beta 2, Pre-Release) are not supported with version 3.0 of the ArcGIS Server API for JavaScript.

esri.request now automatically detects and uses CORS when supported and uses JSON instead of JSONP where possible. For more information on how to use esri.request, and how it works, please refer to the conceptual help topic on esri.request.

New Gauge Dijit:

Support for Dojo 1.7 and AMD. Esri's ArcGIS API for JavaScript modules have not yet been migrated to AMD but developers can use the new AMD style to write and load custom modules. Please refer to the Migrating to 3.0 topic for common dojo-specific issues that arise when migrating from 2.x to 3.0. Version 3.0 of the ArcGIS API for JavaScript also bundles version 0.3.0 the new Dojo dGrid (which includes put-selector 0.2.0 and xstyle 0.0.2).
