Good question Null. Post it to the devlist!
There are 150+ changes from jQuery 1.1.2 t0 220.127.116.11
jQuery is really nearly 60k – if you use the 20k version it has to unpack itself on the visitors broswer everytime a page is loaded. Better to use unpacked version and gzip web compression instead.
It’s the same size as prototype but smaller in use when you consider prototype needs other libraries to do other functions that jquery has built in.
When again is bbPress switching to jQuery?
Or is this just a rumour?
Apparently WordPress has ditched the last scraps of prototype from the admin panel this very week:
I think they are, the also switching enirely to jQuery with wordPress (I believe). I also think it’s better to switch and ditch prototype.
“We’re pleased to announce the latest release of jQuery: jQuery 1.1.4. Barring any horrible mistakes, this release will be the last of the 1.1.x branch – leading us up to the release of jQuery 1.2 in September.”
New trac made for updating jQuery
They are starting to bloat, now nearly 66k
I wonder if 1.2 will break 70k.
Woot for JQuery, I love this framework ^^!
U have prototype+SAU with JQuery in half the size.
Bump for this trac ticket.
