jQuery 1.5.1 Released

jQuery 1.5.1 has been released. This version supports IE9 as a “top level” browser, fixes a lot of bugs, and adds new options to jQuery.ajax() (isLocal, mimeType, and xhrFields).

There will be a meeting about 1.6 on noon EST, March 7th in #jquery-meeting on irc.freenode.net.

jQuery Conference 2011 will be held at the Microsoft Silicon Valley Research Center in Mountain View, California on April 16th and 17th, 2011.
