Seems like it has better performance, among other things. Should definitely squeeze it into 3.0.

Widget and dashboard drag-drop, re-order, open/close looking good. Screen options okay. Autosave okay. Menu open/close okay. Not seeing anything in the console not seen also with jQuery 1.3.2.

  • Summary changed from Upgrade to jQuery 1.4 to Upgrade to jQuery 1.4.1 / 1.4.2

sorry for my comment to an closed ticket

jQuery 1.4.1 Bugfix Version released - but jQuery 1.4.2 should follow soon. maybe waiting for 1.4.2 to upgrade.

  • Resolution fixed deleted

Might as well re-open this ticket then.

I'm thinking we should keep committing the most recent release, even if 1.4.2 is soon to follow, as it'll give us as much time as possible to kick the tires.

Lets hope this won't break lots of plugins like the last update. These don't look good:

Backwards-Incompatible Changes
jQuery() (with no arguments) no longer converts to jQuery(document).

If an Ajax request is made without specifying a dataType and it is returned as text/javascript, it will be executed. Previously, an explicit dataType was required.
