I have mentioned extraction of when in the last post. Good news go on and you should definitely check the new API In short, ugly and inflexible DeferredList is over. Start here: http://dojotoolkit.org/documentation/tutorials/1.8/promises/

dojo/when standalone module (get ready for 1.8, start now)

Finally on the 1.4.2012 dojo team extracted Deferred.when() function into separate module dojo/when. So it is the end of including Deferred if only when() is needed, and end of Deferred.when() ugly client code. Thank you. P.S: old dojo/_base/Deferred uses new dojo/when.js

NaN instanceof Number
10 instanceof Number
Number(10) instanceof Number
typeof NaN
typeof 10
typeof new Number(10)
toString.call(NaN)
toString.call(10)
toString.call(Number(10))
NaN == NaN
NaN === NaN
NaN.toString
['a','b'][NaN]
if(NaN)
