jQuery 1.4 Released


Just in case you missed it, jQuery 1.4 was released with significant speed improvements, bug fixes and of course some API changes that you need to be aware of.

One of the more interesting changes that I’ll note here is the decreased use of polling within the framework.  I’ve used polling myself to detect when elements are available, but jQuery now uses the readystatechange event instead of polling when possible.

I think I’ll try using that method myself on some of my apps.

The news of the jQuery release hasn’t gone unnoticed by the blogosphere:
