jQuery 1.1b


We’re nearly ready for the big 1.1 release, this Sunday – but to hold you over, here’s another set of bug fixes to test upon. The jQuery dev team has been working long-and-hard to fix all the support requests that’ve been coming in this week, and we’ve been pretty successful in fixing just about everything that’s come across our plate.

We’d really appreciate it if you’d take the time to test the new 1.1b with your code, and if you spot any bugs, to please submit them to the bug tracker.

It’s not all bug fixes, however; we do have something new for you to try: The jQuery 1.0 Compatibility Plugin. As promised, this plugin provides all of the methods and selectors that were present in the last 1.0.4 release. So, theoretically, you should be able to drop in jQuery 1.1, and the new compatibility plugin and everything should work seamlessly.

This is how you would use the compatibility plugin with jQuery 1.1:

<html>
<head>
  <script src="jquery-1.1.js“></script>
  <script src=”jquery.compat-1.0.js“></script>
  <script>
    $(document).ready(function(){
        // Your old 1.0-centric code
    });
  </script>
</head>
<body></body>
</html>

So, while its fully possible to continue using the compatibility plugin into the foreseeable future, it is highly recommended that you follow the upgrade plans mentioned before.

So, again; please help us test this beta release! The more you help test, the better the final 1.1 release is going to be. Thanks for all your help!
