On the same day I’m about to announce a fantastic new plugin, John Resig announces the release of jQuery 1.1 and promises huge speed increases:

" We’ll be releasing some final numbers soon, but we’re looking at 4x-10x speed improvements – with some selectors seeing a 30x speed bump."

I’m going to test my plugin with the latest version of jQuery, so be sure you’re subscribed to my RSS feed for the upcoming announcement.
