The new AJAX plugin for jQuery is ready – and if you’re running off of the latest code, it’s already rolled in. Along with that, there are a few new effects to be enjoyed: fadeIn, fadeOut, and center. I’ve also squished a number of bugs, which have gone into this release too:
- A problem with using the $(…,Context) argument, with non-HTML documents has been resolved.
- It’s now possible to pass in a jQuery object as a context: $(”title”,$(”head”));
- A problem with attributes not resolving properly in IE has been fixed.
- Another issue with toggling inline elements has been fixed.
The next release is going to be focusing on additional helper methods to make it easier to navigate documents (and rely less on cryptic XPath sequences) along with methods to avoid continuous .get(0) use.
