This Week in jQuery UI vol. 7

Posted on by

A couple days late to press this week. Friday and Saturday were filled with the first ever JavaScript Conference, JSConf 2009. What a weekend! jQuery UI was represented by Scott González and myself (Richard Worth). Scott gave a presentation on creating a widget using the jQuery UI widget factory. I did an introduction to jQuery UI.


I mentioned the jQuery UI 1.6 release last week as it was available for download. Now the full changelog and blog post are out.

Next up is 1.7.2. We made some progress on that during the sprint. A few more issues to wrap up, and that should be out this week. Speaking of the sprint, thanks to all that participated.

Design & Development

With 1.6 finalized and 1.7 nearing a freeze, the jQuery UI team is shifting focus to 1.8 and beyond. With the recent plugin prioritization, we updated the planned plugins list on the Dev & Planning wiki home. Our focus is currently on the high priority plugins. Please take a look at those plugin pages and see if we’ve missed anything. If you have ideas about each plugin’s requirements, design, or specifications, feel free to edit the page, or leave a comment. If you’ve don’t have a wiki account, there’s a link at the top to request access. We’d love your input.

Sites Using jQuery UI

We maintain a list of Sites Using jQuery UI. If you have a site or find a site using jQuery UI, feel free to add it to this wiki page. New this week:


Open source projects

  • Osimo – A jQuery/jQuery UI enhanced forum system
  • pqp – PHP Quick Profiler
  • Remedie – Pluggable media center application

  1. the Version numbering goes very fast, hope there will be a huge change and hope it will be a complete solution like Yahoo YUI

    disappointed that the tabs widget won’t be getting scroll arrows like Firefox.
    ‘you’re doing it wrong’ is a poor reponse to this request.
