jQuery 2.0 Released

jQuery 2.0 Released http://blog.jquery.com/2013/04/18/jquery-2-0-released/

You asked for it, you got it: jQuery 2.0 has arrived!

As promised, this version leaves behind the older Internet Explorer 6, 7, and 8 browsers. In return it is smaller, faster, and can be used in JavaScript environments where the code needed for old-IE compatibility often causes problems of its own. But donít worry, the jQuery team still supports the 1.x branch which does run on IE 6/7/8. You can (and should) continue to use jQuery 1.9 (and the upcoming 1.10) on web sites that need to accommodate older browsers.

Where to Get It
The final jQuery 2.0.0 files can be found here on the jQuery CDN:

http://code.jquery.com/jquery-2.0.0.min.js (minified, for production)
http://code.jquery.com/jquery-2.0.0.js (unminified, for testing)

1. One of the great things about jQuery was it's cross-browser compatibility.

Now they're trashing that by dumping IE8? There are still a lot of XP machines out there.

What sense does it make to talk about "web sites that need to accommodate older browsers". Wouldn't that be all websites that accept public traffic?

2. Firefox remains light, fast and free.

I honestly don't think its too much to ask XP users to download it for a modern surfing experience, especially if they can trim down the javascript bloat that a slows down a lot of modern sites.

4. Right, just put up a notice: "If you want to buy from us, you must install Firefox" (n/t)

5. So true. The large telecom company I work for is very slow at

adopting new technologies for employee workstations. Only moved off of ie6 a few years ago and is currently sitting on ie8. It refuses to allow Firefox or other browsers. I'm itching to use html5 for projects but have to be very selective in tags used until they decide it's "safe".

I'd be willing to bet a lot of other large companies are slow on adopting newer technologies.

... and we're still using XP. sigh

3. "You can (and should) continue to use jQuery 1.9..."

"... (and the upcoming 1.10) on web sites that need to accommodate older browsers."

Hmm.... what kind of websites DON'T need to accommodate older browsers?
