Deprecation of xhr sync impacts sync loader

Reported by: dylan Owned by: dylan
Priority: undecided Milestone: 1.12
Component: Loader Version: 1.11.2
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:


XHR 2.0 no longer includes sync requests, and Google has announced that they will remove sync requests with their release in September.


  • All non-xd builds prior to Dojo 1.7
  • i18n and text loading even in xd build in Dojo prior to 1.7
  • Anyone not setting async: true by default in their dojoConfig

Given these changes, we need to do the following:

  • Formally deprecate usage of sync xhr
  • Resolve issues around non-xd for old users, if possible
  • Change default in all 1.7+ releases to use async:true
  • Spread the word
  • Determine if there are other issues we need to solve

sync xhr is not being removed by any browser at this time (even though its usage is discouraged), so the answer is to upgrade your version of Dojo.
