jQuery UI 1.8.22

Posted on by

The twenty second maintenance release for jQuery UI 1.8 is out. This update brings bug fixes for Datepicker and Sortable, as well as adding support for jQuery 1.8. We’re doing this release while jQuery 1.8 is still in a pre-release state so that we can get better test coverage before the jQuery 1.8 stable release. If you’d like to test against jQuery 1.8, you can use the jquery-git build (updated on every commit) or wait a few days for the Release Candidate to come out. For the full list of changes, see the changelog. You can download it here:


File Downloads

Svn (contains final files as they are in the zip, with @VERSION replaced with 1.8.22, all themes)

Git (contains source files, with @VERSION not yet replaced with 1.8.22, base theme only)

Google Ajax Libraries API (CDN)

Microsoft Ajax CDN (CDN)

Custom Download Builder


See the 1.8.22 Upgrade Guide for a list of changes that may affect you when upgrading from 1.8.21. For full details on what’s included in this release see the 1.8.22 Changelog.

    Is this version still safe to use with pre jQuery 1.8 code, e.g. jQuery 1.7.2?

  2. I discovered a bug in using draggable and resizable at the same time.

    It fired when dragging the div over right or bottom, it will make the dragger Exceed 1px for each drag.

    (Sorry, pool english)

    as the following code:


    $(function () {


    left: 100px;
    top: 100px;
    margin: 0px;
    width: 500px;
    height: 500px;
    border-width: 1px;
    border-style: solid;
    position: relative;

    width: 100px;
    height: 50px;
    border-width: 1px;
    border-style: solid;

    I’m missing the jquery-ui-1.8.22.custom.min.js in the customised download zip. this must be an error. no minified custom js no no..

  4. Seems to be an issue with using dialog from new UI with new jquery. Often the button text seems to be disappearing from the span that holds the text. Using new UI with 1.7.2 jquery and it all works switch to 1.8 and it disappears

  5. When will be a new release of jQuery UI is going to happen? Bring out something new. Using the same UI concept again and again is making us bored here 🙂

  6. I am having the same issue as David. On a dialog box, the button text is not appearing when I use jQuery 1.8 but does appear when I use jQuery 1.7.2.
