In last week JQuery team has released their latest version.

JQuery is a open source light weight javascript library which contains features to interacts with HTML and DOM elements.

JQuery comes as a single javascript file and in order to use it you have to include it in your web page just as another .js file.

I found it very useful, first because it will save lot of time writing JS code and second, it will allow developers to add some user friendly features in their web apps in web 2.0 style.

Important features:

  • DOM element selections
  • DOM traversal and modification, (including support for CSS 1-3 and basic XPath)
  • Events
  • CSS manipulation
  • Effects and animations
  • Ajax
  • Extensibility
  • Utilities – such as browser version and the each function.
  • JavaScript Plugins

Visual Studio 2008 users cheers because you will find JQuery functions as part of Intellisense.

For more info and tutorials visit JQuery website.
