jQuery 3.2.0 Is Out!

Posted on by

jQuery 3.2.0 has been released!

This release includes some bug fixes, improvements, and some deprecations. There should be no compatibility issues if upgrading from jQuery 3.0+.

If you haven’t yet upgraded to jQuery 3+, please have a look at the 3.0 Upgrade Guide. The jQuery Migrate 3.0 plugin will help you to identify compatibility issues in your code.

Please try out this new release and let us know about any issues you experienced.

Notable Updates

  • Added support for custom CSS properties (#3144).
  • Deprecated jQuery.holdReady (#3288).
  • Deprecated jQuery.nodeName (#3475).
  • Deprecated jQuery.isArray (#2961).
  • Fixed a bug in .width(), .height(), and related methods where CSS transforms were included in the calculations. For instance, an element with the style transform: scale(2x) should not have its width and height values doubled (#3193).
  • Added support for <template> elements to the .contents() method (#3436).
  • Added back the deprecated module to the slim build. This change is largely insignificant given the module’s small size. We believe it makes more sense to remove deprecated pieces from the slim build at the same time as the main jQuery build (#3237).


You can get the files from the jQuery CDN, or link to them directly:



You can also get this release from npm:

npm install jquery@3.2.0

Slim build

Sometimes you don’t need ajax, or you prefer to use one of the many standalone libraries that focus on ajax requests. And often it is simpler to use a combination of CSS and class manipulation for all your web animations. Along with the regular version of jQuery that includes the ajax and effects modules, we’ve released a “slim” version that excludes these modules. The size of jQuery is very rarely a load performance concern these days, but the slim build is about 6k gzipped bytes smaller than the regular version – 23.6k vs 30k. These files are also available in the npm package and on the CDN:


These updates are already available as the current versions on npm and Bower. Information on all the ways to get jQuery is available at https://jquery.com/download/. Public CDNs receive their copies today, please give them a few days to post the files. If you’re anxious to get a quick start, use the files on our CDN until they have a chance to update.


Many thanks to all of you who participated in this release by testing, reporting bugs, or submitting patches, including Connor Atherton, Jason Bedard, David Broder-Rodgers, Oleg Gaidarenko, Michał Gołębiowski, Richard Gibson, karan-96, Manoj Kumar, Alexander Lisianoi, Alex Louden, Alex Padilla, and the whole jQuery team.

    “Slim build
    (…)All in all, it excludes ajax, effects, and currently deprecated code.(…)”

    It seems the post contradicts itself on this point.

  2. Hey there! The most sites which include JS and especially jQuery only use a small subset of this version of jQuery. But new things in this version of jQuery are pretty cool :)

  7. My husband and i ended up being absolutely delighted that Raymond could finish up his research using the precious recommendations he received when using the weblog.
    It is now and again perplexing to just always be freely giving tips and tricks that
    others might have been selling. So we do know we have got the writer
    to appreciate for that. The main explanations you made, the straightforward blog navigation, the relationships you make it possible to promote – it is most amazing, and it’s making our
    son in addition to our family do think the subject matter is entertaining, which is especially vital.
    Thanks for all the pieces!

  8. I just want to say I am just beginner to blogging and site-building and absolutely loved your page. Likely I’m likely to bookmark your blog . You certainly have incredible articles and reviews. Many thanks for sharing your webpage.

  9. I was more than happy to uncover this site.
    I need to to thank you for your time just for this fantastic read!!
    I definitely liked every little bit of it and I have you saved as
    a favorite to see new things on your blog.

    May I simply say what a comfort to discover someone who really understands what they are discussing
    on the internet. You certainly understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More and more people have to read this and understand this
    side of the story. I can’t believe you are not more popular given that you certainly have
    the gift.

    Excellent blog post. I absolutely love this site.
    Stick with it!

    It’s nearly impossible to find educated people on this
    subject, but you sound like you know what you’re talking about!


    You ought to take part in a contest for one
    of the highest quality sites on the internet.

    I am going to recommend this web site!

    An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment. I believe that you ought to write more on this issue,
    it might not be a taboo matter but generally people do
    not discuss such topics. To the next! All the best!!

    Hi there! I simply would like to offer you a huge thumbs up
    for the great info you’ve got here on this post.
    I am returning to your site for more soon.

    When I originally commented I seem to have clicked the
    -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from
    now on each time a comment is added I receive four emails with the exact same
    comment. Perhaps there is a way you can remove me
    from that service? Cheers!

    The next time I read a blog, I hope that it does
    not fail me just as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I genuinely thought you’d have something interesting to
    talk about. All I hear is a bunch of complaining
    about something that you could possibly fix if you weren’t too busy looking for

    Spot on with this write-up, I seriously think this site needs a
    great deal more attention. I’ll probably be back again to read more, thanks for the advice!

    for many years. Wonderful stuff, just wonderful!

    Aw, this was an extremely good post. Finding the time and actual
    effort to produce a superb article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and never manage to get nearly anything done.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining,
    and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is an issue that not enough people are speaking
    intelligently about. I’m very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

    Oh my goodness! Awesome article dude! Many thanks,
    However I am having issues with your RSS. I don’t know the reason why I am
    unable to subscribe to it. Is there anybody else having identical RSS problems?
    Anybody who knows the solution will you kindly respond?


    An outstanding share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a co-worker who had been conducting a little research on this.
    And he in fact ordered me breakfast because I found
    it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this….
