-To start withat this point it is recommended that new features not be developed ​for the JSPAC unless they involve security or limiting patron actionsOtherwise development should be targeted at TPAC.+The JSPAC was built on the JavaScript OpenSRF interfaces and built almost everything outside of the base page layouts client side. Search results and account information were populated via AJAX after the initial page load. This included use of the Dojo Toolkitthough ​for a number of reasons Evergreen is currently limited to the somewhat outdated Dojo version 1.3.
  
-The JSPAC is built on the JavaScript OpenSRF interfaces and builds almost everything outside of the base page layouts client side. Search results and account information are populated after the initial page load as the system makes backend calls with the AJAX technologies the browser supports. Development is thus more oriented towards JavaScript programming and XHTML pages than anything else. This includes use of the Dojo Toolkit, though for a number of reasons Evergreen is currently limited to the somewhat outdated Dojo version 1.3. +The JSPAC supported ​multiple skins, but only one shipped with Evergreen.

-The Evergreen browser-based (or "​web"​) staff client is now the main client, and the XUL client ​will be removed from Evergreen ​releases as of version 3.2 (expected ​Fall 2018). ​Circulation features were released as a preview with Evergreen 2.8(?)and the full browser client was released with Evergreen 3.0 in October 2017.  XUL interfaces have been converted ​to AngularJS, while most Dojo interfaces have been embedded in the web client ​with hopes to convert them to AngularJS eventually(NOTE: ​We are making plans to upgrade from [[dev:​browser_staff:​angular5|AngularJS to Angular 5]].)+The Evergreen browser-based (or "​web"​) staff client is now the main client, and the XUL client ​is not supported starting with Evergreen version 3.2 (Fall 2018). ​Because of this, Evergreen 3.1 has an extended support window for sites that are not ready to switch ​to the web client. 
 + 
 +We are currently converting all the old Dojo interfaces into Angular (version 7+). After that, we will re-write the AngularJS interfaces as well.  (See [[dev:​browser_staff:​angjs_to_ang_migration]] for the proposed timeline.)  ​Development for the web Staff Client can involve Angular (using TypeScript),​ AngularJS, JavaScript, (X)HTML, and OPAC development. Perhaps all at the same time, depending on your goals.

-The old Staff Client was a XULRunner application built on the XULRunner 3 series, which is equivalent to the Firefox 3 series. It was a combination of local and remote XUL pages, JavaScript, and the OPAC itself.+Circulation features were released as a preview with Evergreen 2.8(?), and the full browser client was released with Evergreen 3.0 in October 2017.  XUL interfaces have been converted to AngularJS, while most Dojo interfaces were initially embedded in the web client as-is, with hopes to convert them to AngularJS or new Angular eventually.  ​The old Staff Client was a XULRunner application built on the XULRunner 3 series, which is equivalent to the Firefox 3 series.
