jQuery 1.3.2 Released

Tagged:  

The jQuery project has released its second update in the 1.3.x series, 1.3.2.

Notable changes:

  • Elements are returned in document order rather than the order of the selectors passed in. This is to comply with the Selectors API.
  • Improvements in the :hidden/:visible selectors to check the browser-reported offsetWidth and offsetHeight rather than the CSS visibility attribute. This works better with elements that have hidden ancestors, and improves performance.
  • Performance improvement in width() and height() methods.
  • Better selector peformance in IE.
  • The methods appendTo, prependTo, insertBefore, insertAfter, and replaceAll now return the set of inserted elements, instead of the original set of elements.

jQuery 1.3.2 can be downloaded from the main page.

The jQuery library isn’t officially compatible with Safari 1.3.x, and that version isn’t part of this site’s compatibility profile: less than 1% of the current site’s visitors use a Safari version older than 2.x. The final version of the new site’s JavaScript will filter out old Safari versions, showing them just the first image in the series.

Do you know that jQuery now supports "live events" - events that can be bound to all current - and future - elements. Using event delegation, and a seamless jQuery-style API, the result is both easy to use and very fast.
