jQuery 1.8.2

jQuery 1.8.2 is out, and new users of the 1.8 line are advised to read the jQuery Blog posts for 1.8 and 1.8.1 before upgrading. This version adds a lot of fixes to the selector engine's pseudo class handling, including :first, :last, :nth-child, :not, and :contains.

jQuery UK

jQuery UK 2013 has been announced for the 19th of April in Oxford. Early bird ticket will be £160, but there are also 'blind bird' tickets available for £130.

JavaScript Conference 2012

While we're on the topic of conferences, JavaScript Conference 2012 takes place on the 15th and 16th of October 2012 in Düsseldorf. There are several tiers of tickets available, and the main conference ticket costs €590.

There's a talk on jQuery Mobile and a few on Sencha's various technologies. I also noticed a Backbone.js talk, and one on Node as well. The speakers page has details on all of the talks and workshops.
