jQuery UI 1.8.9

jQuery UI 1.8.9 has been released. This is a maintenance release that includes bug fixes and
localisations, see the 1.8.9
changelog
for more.

Zepto 0.4

Zepto 0.4 was released a few days ago, which introduces JSONP and
improved iterators. I also noticed Thomas Fuchs has made Zepto a lot
more jQuery compatible. The Zepto
GitHub
repository has detailed
examples and there's a website now too at
zeptojs.com.

Thomas wrote a post about it here: Zepto.js v0.4 - JSONP & more DOM
goodness
.

I wrote about Zepto last year in A Look Inside
Zepto.js
.

jquery-toastmessage-plugin

jquery-toastmessage-plugin (Apache License 2.0) by Daniel Bremer-Tonn at akquinet A.G is another handy little Growl-style messaging system. The Toast
demo

shows various message types in action.

I tried forcing it to display lots of messages and it handles that
situation fairly well -- the messages appear as others fade, rather than
causing a scrollbar to appear. This seems like something that would work
well in a Backbone.js/jQuery UI app.
