On Day 12, the jQuery team released jQuery 1.4.1, the first bug release to jQuery 1.4. jQuery 1.4.1 is now the latest release of jQuery; take a moment to review the 1.4.1 release notes.

When will 1.4.2 be released that has all of the performance improvements?
Who do we contact about missing ebooks after a qualifying donation?
@Tim: Not sure, but probably within the next couple weeks.
You’re awesome! Also, I definitely liked how you kicked but against Dojo’s dumb “we’re better” post the other day.
I’m looking forward to all of these performance increases in the next release of JQuery.
Also, in case you haven’t noticed – a similar thread is going on in the forums about noticed performance degradation in IE since 1.4 has been released.
Take care :)
@Tim thanks I just moved that thread into dev core forum to make sure he would see it.
All the ebooks should’ve gone out by now — email sponsorship@jquery if you haven’t received yours :)
