Based on the items listed in the changelog, I'm going to remove the early keyword here. I think this can be reasonably added at any point during the current release cycle.

See also this note about the upcoming jQuery UI 1.14:

The list of breaking changes will be short and mostly boil down to:

  • dropping support for legacy browsers (mostly IE & Edge Legacy); only testing on the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, Safari & Edge - but I suspect Drupal already doesn't support them?
  • switching the default of jQuery.uiBackCompat from true to false - it's easy to overwrite that back if you need for backwards compatibility
  • only testing on the latest version of jQuery within each major (1.x, 2.x, 3.x I 4.x) - currently, each minor update is being tested

@swissspidy any objection to committing this and then creating a new ticket for 1.14 since that release is currently in beta?

Just FYI: WordPress use a "special" build of jQuery UI that allows separate components to be enqueued through the script loader (mostly for use by plugins) and optimizes the loading a bit. Also some "special" CSS but that seems to be unaffected.

This seems to be working fine but still thinking it would be good to have "special testing calls" to test this update during 6.6 beta and RC, just in case.
