I thought I should follow up my last fun/rant post with the jQuery 2.0 announcement release.
The main highlight to me is the exclusion of Internet Explorer 6-8 support. It was a smart move on their part. jQuery 1.x is still readily available. To me its a good push for the world to leave the old, dying browsers behind, and finally propel everything into the modern web.
I know most of us won’t be able to 100% enjoy this, but its a glimmer of hope that the future is closer than we think. Well done, jQuery.
