Changelog

See the 1.8rc3 Changelog for what’s been fixed since 1.8rc2. For a list of all issues fixed since 1.7.2, see previous 1.8 changelogs.

Upgrade Guide

A full Upgrade Guide for easing the transition between 1.7 and 1.8 is in the works. This will be ready in time for the final release. In the meantime, one of the more significant (and breaking) changes in 1.8 already documented there is a refactor of the widget factory. This means anyone that has built their own plugin that uses the widget factory will need to make a number of changes for compatibility with 1.8. For a view of these changes, see the widget factory section of the Upgrade Guide. Also, see this sample implementation of a simple widget with both the 1.7 and 1.8 widget factories, and the differences, by Scott González.

Plan for 1.8 final

We hope to release jQuery UI 1.8 final after a couple days, assuming there aren’t any blocking issues present in this release candidate.

Thanks

A big thanks to all that have worked on all the bug fixes and other improvements that have gone into this release. We’ll have a proper listing of all contributors in the final release announcement.

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.

Releases

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:

Sites

Open source projects

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

Tutorials and Blog Posts

ThemeRoller-ready Plugins
