    I thought you guys had vanished! Been a long time since the UI team has made a blog post (I’m sure some of you are busy with the plugins site fiasco). Glad to see full integration with jQuery 1.7.1, since that’s what I’ve been using – I didn’t notice any problems for my accordion menu and buttons on 1.8.16, but then again, I hadn’t tested it on every browser out there, especially older ones like IE7 or Firefox 3.

    I’m very excited for whenever you’ll release jQuery UI 1.9; I may replace our website’s custom drop-down menu with the jQuery UI one, and I’m guessing it’ll be more stable and cross-browser compliant.
