  1. There is not an upgrade guide for this however when I change from 1.8.15 to 1.8.16 I receive 6 errors.

    [Break On This Error] _pageScroll: function() {
    jquery…menu.js (line 547)
    $.ui is undefined
    [Break On This Error] keyCode = $.ui.keyCode,
    jquery…nner.js (line 15)
    $.ui is undefined
    [Break On This Error] $.fn.extend ( $.ui.dialog.prototype,
    jquery…alog.js (line 7)

  2. Please disregard my post, I made a mistake when including the JavaScript file on my site. If I could delete my post above I would.
