The fourth maintenance release for jQuery UI 1.8 is out. This update brings bug fixes for the Droppable, Resizable, Selectable and Sortable interactions as well as the Accordion, Autocomplete, Button, Datepicker Dialog, Progressbar, Slider and Tabs widgets. jQuery UI 1.8.3 was released a few days prior to 1.8.4, but there was a problem with the build system that caused some of the files to not contain any copyright information. If you noticed the 1.8.3 release and upgraded, please upgrade to 1.8.4. For the full list of changes, see the changelog. You can download it here:
Svn (contains final files as they are in the zip, with @VERSION replaced with 1.8.4, all themes)
Git (contains pre-build files, with @VERSION not yet replaced with 1.8.4, base theme only)

In this release, we’ve added four new methods to help with setting the dimensions of elements (actually, we’ve modified existing functions from jQuery core). .innerHeight(), .innerWidth(), .outerHeight(), and .outerWidth() can now be used as setters. They all accept a number as a parameter, and that number will be used to set the width or height appropriately, based on the padding, border, and margins (depending on the method).
You can now pass multiple events to accordion’s event option. See the hover intent demo to see an example of an accordion reacting to both clicks and hovers.
Two new options have been added to autocomplete: position and appendTo. The position option allows you to take advantage of the position utility to customize where the menu will be displayed. The appendTo option allows you to specify which element the menu will be appended to, defaulting to the body.
The dialog plugin has also been updated to allow full usage of the position utility. Setting the dialog’s position with a string or array is still possible, but will be removed in a future version.
The tabs plugin has been updated to allow accessing tabs by href in addition to index. The enable, disable, select, load, and remove methods all accept the href of a tab.
See the 1.8.4 Upgrade Guide for a list of changes that may affect you when upgrading from 1.8.2. For full details on what’s included in this release see the 1.8.4 Changelog.
