Has anyone checked out the new version of jQuery v1.8.0 ?
Starting in jQuery 1.8, special builds can now be created that optionally exclude or include any of the following modules:
  • ajax
  • css
  • dimensions
  • effects
  • offset
I think this has been a long awaited feature for developers. Plus they have added automatic vendor prefixing for $.css() and the sizzle selector has undergone a major rewrite. Also I’ve heard that starting jQuery 2.0 support for IE6 /7/8 will be removed.

IE being removed, Great! Even more reason for people to move away from it.

Good news for the jquery users :)

IE version lower than 9 will start to be marginalized, developers can’t be developing innovating things taking in consideration archaic browsers too much longer. I wouldn’t test a desktop application on a windows 98 so why test a site on IE6 ?

Supposedly, in jQuery v1.9 IE 6 /7/8 will still be supported but will be identical otherwise compared to the 2.0 version. I imagine it’ll be a while before v2.0 is used widely if this is the case with the 1.9 version. The fact that there’ll be a choice is both bad and good.

The general public was educated about Flash not being available, so I don’t see why they can’t be educated about the fact that their browser sucks. jQuery 2.0 should just include an automatic “your browser is old” message. That would be fantastic :D

The sizzle looks more strict, I’ve caught some kind of error with prettyPhoto and 1.8. It’s great that it now throws more meaningful errors in the console, but it’s still a challenge to debug it way back to where something was originally called. And also, was it throwing errors and reloading the page when one of the data values was missing in an ajax request? In case you forgot to validate/check data beforehand… link
