Just a quick note to let you know (those of you not on Twitter of course) that jQuery 1.5 has been released. You can find details on their blog post. I'm still wrapping my head around some of the changes, but shoot, even if you don't care about new functionality it looks like performance has been updated and that's always a good thing. I've found one blog entry that you may want to check out: Using Deferreds in jQuery 1.5 This is one of the interesting new features in jQuery. I'll be honest and say that part of this is a bit confusing to me, but the main take is that if you've ever wanted to fire N async requests and fire a method when all are done - it is now ridiculously easy in jQuery. That's a big bottle of win to me.
