ArcGIS API for JavaScript Version 2.8 Released

Version 2.8 of the ArcGIS API for JavaScript is now available! Highlights include:


  • Portal for ArcGIS API:  An API to build applications that works with content from ArcGIS Online or an ArcGIS Portal
  • Support for ArcGIS Server 10.1 editor tracking which enables automatic tracking of which user created a feature, when a feature was created, which user last updated a feature and when a feature was last updated
  • Simpler constructor signatures for esri.SpatialReference class
  • Feature Layers now fire an onQueryLimitExceeded event when a feature layer is unable to draw all expected features due to maxRecordCount restriction imposed on the server
  • The Identity Manager has new methods to serialize its state and re-hydrate later
