Less Scripts, More Widgets!

We have bundled all of our scripts and dependencies together to make using Wijmo much easier. Wijmo Open now includes BGIframe, Mousewheel, and Globalize libraries. Wijmo Complete now includes Raphael and Cookie libraries. We also merged everything into a single CSS file for both Wijmo Open and Complete. Here is how easy it is to reference Wijmo now:

    <!--jQuery References-->  
    <script src="http://ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/jquery/jquery-1.6.2.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>  
    <script src="http://ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/jquery.ui/1.8.16/jquery-ui.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>  

    <link href="http://cdn.wijmo.com/themes/rocket/jquery-wijmo.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" title="rocket-jqueryui" />  

    <!--Wijmo Widgets CSS-->  
    <link href="http://cdn.wijmo.com/jquery.wijmo-complete.all.2.0.0b1.min.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />  

    <!--Wijmo Widgets JavaScript-->  
    <script src="http://cdn.wijmo.com/jquery.wijmo-open.all.2.0.0b1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>  
    <script src="http://cdn.wijmo.com/jquery.wijmo-complete.all.2.0.0b1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>  

And of course we have added some epic new widgets to our arsenal.

New Events Calendar

We have built an entire app into a single widget with the new Events Calendar. It is very similar to the UI found in the iPad Calendar app and has similar features as Google Calendar. It is built work work with localStorage and can also be tied to server-side storage. Check out the new Events Calendar Widget.
