jQuery 1.10.1 and 2.0.2

"A new release already? It's only been a week! Yes, because you deserve it. We're greatly encouraged by all the people who upgraded and found our well-hidden 'we completely hosed relative animations' easter egg," writes Dave Methvin, about the release of jQuery 1.10.1 and 2.0.2.

The full background to this bug was documented in ticket #13939. Another animation-related bug was fixed, and an IE selector/iframe issue as well.

ikSelect

ikSelect (GitHub: Igor10k / ikSelect) by "Igor10k" is another select replacement plugin! This one supports custom markup and inline-block, optgroup, adding and removing options, callbacks, and event triggers.

The API is clean and idiomatic jQuery. There's a single entry point, $(selector).ikSelect which can be used to apply the plugin to a select, or issue commands to an instance of ikSelect. Various options are supported, like setting the width automatically and adding search support (known as filtering in this case).

photoWall.js

photoWall.js (GitHub: jeremyjcpaul / photowall, License: MIT, jQuery: photowall) by Jeremy JC Paul creates a photo gallery in a similar style to Google+/Picasa, where clicking on an image opens a panel that displays additional metadata.

The markup allows the photo's title and description to be specified like this:

<div class="photowall">  
  <div class="pw-slide">
    <img class="pw-image" src="images/image-filename.jpg" />
    <div class="pw-image-desc">
      <!-- Any HTML content can go in here. -->
    </div>
  </div>
</div>  

The plugin is invoked using $(selector).photoWall(), and supported options include event handlers and animation speed.
