A new release of jQuery is out — 1.2.6, skipping directly from 1.2.3. Most noteworthy are the performance improvements (you can check out the detailed performance data via this Google Spreadsheet). The headlines on improvements:
- Event handling: 103%
- CSS selectors: 13%
- .offset: 21%
- .css: 25%
Lots of other fixes, but the most important, IMHO, is the inclusion of Brandon Aaron’s Dimension’s plugin — cross browser support for find element dimensions, offsets and positioning — in the jQuery core. Check out the release notes here.
