jQuery BBQ v1.1.1, also BBQ + jQuery 1.3.2 or 1.4?


First, this minor jQuery BBQ bugfix release incorporates the just-updated jQuery hashchange event v1.1 which fixes a pretty obscure (but not entirely surprising) IE8 bug. No changes were made other than this very minor tweak, so if you’re not using the X-UA-Compatible IE=EmulateIE7 meta tag, you can safely ignore this update. If you are, then run—don’t walk—to the plugin page right now for the v1.1.1 update!

Second, a lot of people ask which version of jQuery they should use with BBQ. Since the plugin has been coded with both jQuery 1.3.2 and 1.4+ in mind, it fully works (and has been unit tested) with both versions. And since 1.4 has seen some major speed increases, as well as some powerful event enhancements and a much improved .param method (both of which BBQ utilizes) I recommend that version.. but either will work just fine!

Please note that if you’re using jQuery 1.4, due to an event namespacing bug I recommend that you upgrade to jQuery 1.4.1 ASAP, which addresses this and a few other issues.

Also, I want to thank Vincent Voyer for not only bringing the IE8 issue to my attention, but also using the GitHub issue tracker to report the bug, which made it easy for me to address!

  • Any of these HTML tags may be used for style: a, b, i, br, p, strong, em, pre, code.
  • Multi-line JavaScript code should be wrapped in <pre class="brush:js"></pre>
