1.10.0 and 2.0.1
jQuery 1.10.0 and 2.0.1 were released last week:
Our main goal with these two releases is to synchronize the features and behavior of the 1.x and 2.x lines, as we pledged a year ago when jQuery 2.0 was announced. Going forward, we'll try to keep the two in sync so that 1.11 and 2.1 are feature-equivalent for example.
Even though these newer jQuery releases have shed the legacy IE support baggage, there are still IE-specific fixes: IE9 focus of death.
The author has included unit tests, and the readme has plenty of examples. The jQuery portion of the project doesn't add any specific aspect-oriented enhancements to jQuery itself, it just binds to
Backbone.Cache and Backbone.Cleanup
Naor Ye sent in some of his Backbone.js plugins. Backbone.Cache allows you to define a cache object that models and collections can use. You'll need to make your models and collections inherit from the right classes:
Backbone.CachedCollection provide a
cacheObject property that can be used to point to a suitable object to use as a cache.
Backbone.Cleanup offers parent classes for views and
Backbone.Router to help you clean and reuse nested views. A method called
markCurrentView is used to set the current view, so when the view is no longer active its
cleanup method will be triggered.
