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.

The Introduction to jQuery video starts from the basics, even explaining
the reasoning behind unobtrusive JavaScript.
