Another week, another collection of links to some of the most interesting and exciting new jQuery happenings around the web.
- JÃ¶rn Zaefferer’s wildly popular Validation plugin just got updated to version 1.5.2, which includes a slick demo of the plugin’s integration with jQuery UI Tabs.
- DataTables: uses “progressive enhancement” to convert a static HTML table into a much more dynamic data table.
- UI.Layout: allows you to “create any UI look you want – from simple headers or sidebars, to a complex application with toolbars, menus, help-panels, status bars, sub-forms.” While not a part of the jQuery UI project, you can combine it with jQuery UI widgets “to create a sophisticated application.”
