It's been just over one year since we released our last version of xajax and it was about time we released another version.

Sweet treat: xajax 0.2.4

We're happy to announce the release of xajax 0.2.4. It's like having a sweet treat: just a yummy little something to tide you over until the next big meal. Yes, work on xajax 0.5 has already begun, and it will soon be under heavy development, but in the meantime, enjoy 0.2.4. It fixes a couple of minor issues and offers a few new goodies -- the most exciting of which is a way to call a Javascript function from PHP and pass data structures like strings, arrays, and event object properties to that function without any need to specially format anything. It's kind of like JSON, only...it's XML instead. You'll love it.... read more

xajax 0.2.3 released

We're pleased to report that xajax 0.2.3 is out (0.2.2 was a "silent" release), fixing a lot of the problems people have been having with character encoding. A whole bunch of code was refactored pertaining to charsets and encoding/decoding functions, and at this point we think xajax is one of the best solutions available for international users and PHP.
