WinJS 3.0 is released today


Version 3.0 of Windows Library for JavaScript (WinJS):

The Windows Library for JavaScript (WinJS) project is pleased to announce the general availability of its first release –WinJS 3.0 – since the open source project began at //BUILD 2014. The WinJS 3.0 release offers customers:

  • Cross-browser/cross-platform support spanning the most popular desktop and mobile browsers, as well as HTML-based app environments like Apache Cordova
  • JavaScript modularization giving developers the control to optimize their performance and load just the modules of the WinJS library they need for their web site or app
  • Improved universal control designs delivering a more seamless experience for end users across Phone, Tablet, and PC device form factors of various screen sizes and input types

The release includes a number of improvements based on issues and pull requests brought forth by members of the GitHub community. We’d like to extend a special thanks to everyone who has contributed to the project already in this way.


Now with HTML5 tools like the IntelXDK, you can write a crossplatform HTML5 app, have nearly all of the functionality of a native app, and still have the modern design across the board.
