I take the day off and hit the golf course only to come back and find out that John Resig and gang have launched jQuery 1.1 with a bunch of new improvements, reworked site design for the official jQuery site, and some really sharp jQuery plugins.

Just the Facts

John goes into much more detail on the main jQuery blog, but here is what you need to know, in a nutshell:

On a lighter note:

  • jQuery is one year old (as of yesterday)
  • A book on jQuery is in the works, and has been for some time. Look for release in late spring or early summer.

Bugs in jQuery 1.1a Squashed

I mentioned in a recent post that I had a few fantastic plugins on the way. I was just about to pull the trigger when 1.1a was announced. Turns out that there were a few bugs that prevented my plugin from working like it should, so I held off.

With the release of 1.1b those bugs were gone and my plugins were working again.

So, off I run to do some tests with jQuery 1.1 to see if all is well.
