Two New jQuery Releases

Last Alpha Release for jQuery Mobile

Jessica Thornsby

jQuery 1.5.2 and jQuery Mobile alpha 4 released.

The jQuery team have announced two new releases: version 1.5.2
of jQuery and jQuery Mobile’s fourth alpha release. jQuery 1.5.2 is a bug fix release, which addresses
problems with replaceWith throwing errors on non existent elements,
and adds a catch block in resolveWith, which means the finally
block gets executed in IE7 and IE6. This is the second minor
release on top of jQuery 1.5. Meanwhile, jQuery Mobile alpha 4 is the last alpha before
the project heads into beta, and adds Windows Phone 7 as a
supported platform. It also adds functionality for binding to a set
of virtual mouse events, which normalises both touch and mouse
events across various mobile platforms. This new feature should
distinguish the type of input that is occurring and eliminate any
duplicate events. Listviews have been refactored to support the
full compliment of form elements, and read-only lists can now
display the same content formatting as linked lists.

The team will add support for Blackberry 5 and Nokia/Symbian for
the forthcoming beta release.
