jQuery 2.0 JavaScript framework to drop support for IE 6, 7, and 8


Recommended Posts


1.9 will be released in parallel for developers who want legacy browser support.

The developers behind the popular jQuery JavaScript library recently published a blog entry with details about the project’s development roadmap. In the note, they announced plans to drop support for legacy versions of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer Web browser in jQuery 2.0

The 2.0 update is expected to release next year. Web developers need not worry, however, because the jQuery team has a plan to ensure that old versions of IE are still supported. A separate 1.9 release to be issued in parallel will leave legacy IE support intact.

The jQuery library is extremely popular among Web developers and is used on some of the largest sites on the Internet. It provides a number of convenience methods and utility functions that dramatically simplify DOM manipulation and other tasks that are common in modern Web applications.

Vamos mesmo longe os tempos em que o IE era a norma e os outros é que tinham de se ajustar...

Deixar de suportar o IE8 é uma enorme machadada que a comunidade de desenvolvimento web dá à MS... Não que a MS se importe do ponto de vista comercial, obviamente...

40 PRINT "404 Not Found"
50 PRINT "./M6 @ Portugal a Programar."

Finalmente (aparentemente) o jQuery vai deixar de ser uma biblioteca que vai dar a volta ao bilhar grande para fazer coisas simples. Agora, provavelmente, já só vai dar a volta ao bilhar pequeno e finalmente não demorar 100x ou 300x a executar do que usar o API e código direto para o que se quer.

Pode ser que o meu computador já n sofra lag a executar js do jQuery qd está a bateria.
