What's new in jQuery 2.0

You asked for it, you got it: jQuery 2.0 has arrived! Oh Yes!! jQuery 2.0 is finally released and this version leaves behind the older Internet Explorer 6, 7, and 8 browsers. jQuery 2.0 is intended for the modern web. But don’t worry, the jQuery team still supports the 1.x branch which does run on IE 6/7/8. If you're upgrading from a version before 1.9, we recommend that you use the jQuery Migrate plugin.

http://code.jquery.com/jquery-2.0.0.js (unminified, for testing)

The files should also be available on the Google and Microsoft CDNs soon.

What's new in 2.0

  • Reduced size
  • Custom builds for even smaller files

There is no major changes that they have made or nothing new has been incorporated. This release comes up with lots of bug fixes.
