The sixth milestone release for jQuery UI 1.9 is out, featuring many updates for the Spinner 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 Spinner API has been updated with a few new features and bug fixes. Check out the planning wiki for documentation.
Menu now handles submenus much better.
Position now has a
within option, allowing you to use something other then window for collision detection, e.g., a scrolling div. The collision detection itself got a lot smarter, and has a new mode: flipfit.
You can download the jQuery UI 1.9 Milestone 6 – Spinner 2 release as a zip file or via git:
