#39943 new enhancement

Update jQuery UI to 1.12.x

Some nice enhancements in the jQuery 1.12.x library over 1.11.4 (current bundled version). Was coding a form with the controlgroup widget in jQuery UI 1.12.x only to realize the bundled jQuery UI didn't support it. Wound up using the now deprecated buttonset widget so I'll have to go back eventually.

First ticket in a while for me. Keep up the great work!

Replying to Presskopp:

this has been done, see https://core.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/37528


jQuery UI is still showing 1.11.4 in my installation.

@Presskopp that ticket refers to jQuery, not to be confused with jQuery UI. Which is why @lexhair is reporting seeing ver. 1.11.4.

Oops - got me. So we should update the component, I'd assume..

@Presskopp Is there any progress on this?

Wordpress is still shipping with jQuery-UI 1.11.4 (Mar 11, 2015)

This should really be upgraded to jQuery-UI 1.12.1 (Sep 14, 2016) to allow use of newer widgets (controlgroup, Checkboxradio) & implement the dozens of bugfixes from 1.12 & 1.12.1:

jQuery UI before 1.12 is now listed as common vulnerability: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2016-7103

In my specific case, this is causing a server security scan to fail (for eCommerce).
