jQuery 1.2: jQuery.extend(“Awesome”)

Posted on by

Attend jQueryCamp Boston!
We’re having a free one day conference this October and most of the jQuery team will be there. Come along, ask questions, and meet the people who build the library that you love!

This is a massive new release of jQuery that’s been a long time in the making – and it’s ready for your consumption!

We’ve put the full jQuery 1.2 release notes on a page of it’s own, since there’s so much to dig through. REMEMBER, features were removed in 1.2, so please be sure to read the notes on how to upgrade before doing so.

As always, there’s going to be bugs, so please submit them to the bug tracker and we’ll try to get them sorted out, right away. You can probably expect a minor bug fix release within the week to take care of any pressing issues.

    @arphen: The still can use the packed version.

    But I using a minified and compressed version is more efficient.

    There is different way to serve your file compreesed. You can use php to serve static compressed files and setting the header, or let your webserver compress them. With apache 2, mod deflate and mod headers, you have to had the following directive in httpd.conf or .htaccess:
    <IfModule mime_module>
    <files *.js>
    ForceType text/javascript

    <files *.css>
    ForceType text/css

    <IfModule headers_module>
    <IfModule deflate_module>
    # Netscape 4.x
    BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4 no-gzip
    # For browsers that pretend to be Mozilla4
    BrowserMatch \b(MSIE|Safari) !no-gzip
    # IE5.5 and 6.0 has bugs
    BrowserMatch \bMSIE\s(5\.5|6\.0) no-gzip
    # IE 6.0 after SP2 may not have gzip bugs!
    BrowserMatch \bMSIE.*SV !no-gzip
    # Some version of Opera pretends to be IE6
    BrowserMatch \bOpera !no-gzip

    AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html
    AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/css
    AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/javascript

    Header append Vary User-Agent

  16. It got too big with 26K, sorry. That’s a 30% increase in size since 1.1.3 while I don’t need all those features all the time. I like javascript libs like this, but not over 20K.
