Don’t Use jquery-latest.js

Previously I had posted about "How to always reference latest version of jQuery" as to always use latest version of jQuery without even updating your referencing code through jQuery CDN.

But jQuery team now says "Don’t Use jquery-latest.js" as their CDN had an issue that made the jquery-latest.js and jquery-latest.min.js files unavailable for a few hours in some geographical area. Yesterday, they have posted on their blog and below is the excerpt of the blog post.

"Earlier this week the jQuery CDN had an issue that made the jquery-latest.js and jquery-latest.min.js files unavailable for a few hours in some geographical areas. (This wasn’t a problem with the CDN itself, but with the repository that provides files for the CDN.) While we always hope to have 100% uptime, this particular outage emphasized the number of production sites following the antipattern of using this file. So let’s be clear: Don’t use jquery-latest.js on a production site."
