JQuery just released a beta version of jQuery v4. Is this something that wp core will be looking to implement?

Of course :)

Replying to swissspidy:

Maybe something for the plugin?

Yep, thinking the test plugin can be updated for WP 6.5 (currently in beta). Then try to time the update to jQuery 4.0 depending on when it is released.

The plugin is not compatible with newer versions of WordPress; it is only compatible with WordPress 5.6 and earlier versions.
Does anyone have suggestions on how to test it with jQuery 4.0.0 BETA?

All tests pass here despite having removed utf8_encode, which is unexpected. is it possible this encoding is no longer required?

Adding the performance tag, noting that the new jQuery version touts some performance benefits, including a "slim" version with a smaller size.
