jQuery 1.7 RC1 Released

Posted on by

The team is getting closer to jQuery 1.7, and today we’re putting out a release candidate. The full list of fixes and features can be found below. We urge everyone to start testing this code in their applications, so we can make sure that there are no major problems before the final release.

Testing couldn’t be simpler, you can get the code from the jQuery CDN:

Please help us by dropping that code into your existing application. If you see something, say something. File a bug and mention that you’re testing against jQuery 1.7 RC1. If there’s a problem we want to fix it.

In the meantime, we’re working on the documentation and release notes to make sure your transition to 1.7 goes smoothly. Stay tuned!
