jQuery UI 1.9 Milestone 5 – Tabs Redesign

Posted on by

The fifth milestone release for jQuery UI 1.9 is out, featuring the updated Tabs widget. This release also includes updates and bug fixes to existing and new widgets that will not make it into a 1.8.x release.

What’s a Milestone Release?

A milestone release makes it easier to try out the latest development code of jQuery UI without necessarily having to check out code from GitHub.

With a milestone release you can try out new widgets that are pretty far along (though not yet final) and provide feedback based on released code with a specific version number.

Note: the API is subject to change as the code is still under active development.


The Tabs API has been redesigned for simplicity, extensibility and consistency with other widgets in jQuery UI. We’d love to get feedback on any compatibility issues you may have with existing code. Everything supported in 1.8 should work out-of-the-box in 1.9; if something breaks, we will work to fix it before the final release.


You can download the jQuery UI 1.9 Milestone 5 – Tabs Redesign release as a zip file or via git:
