If you’d like to update to the latest release and test your code against jQuery 1.4.3, you can download ithere (or here, minified). As always you can also load the code directly from Google’s CDN.
According to a blog post announcing jQuery 1.4.3, the jQuery team will be using JSLint to prevent regressions in future releases. Of course, it also means that you can use JSLint in your own jQuery-based scripts without having to wade through jQuery errors.
One thing we should note though is that the jQuery team has made a few minor changes to JSLint to suit the “particular development style” of jQuery code. Most of the changes are minor, and you can read the full details in the jQuery style guide.
Here’s a video of jQuery creator John Resig showing off the power of the library, including an overview the latest enhancements (and those still to come) at the Future of Web Apps conference earlier this month in London. The video comes courtesy of the conference’s producers at Carsonified. Check out their Future of Web Design conference in New York next month.
