jQuery 1.8.2

Would like this to be the last in the 1.8 line

Let’s be VERY conservative about fixes

Blockers

https://github.com/jquery/sizzle/pull/151 from gibson

  • needed for regressions

Performance suite for jQuery core

We have a new suite for Sizzle http://cl.ly/image/0C2V351c3y1a

rwaldron will take the lead on Dromaeo adaptation

  • /jquery/dromaeo repo created (thanks scott_gonzalez)

jQuery 1.9/2.0

Fix common 1.9/2.0 problems early

  • Removals from deprecations
  • Bug fixes

Branch 1.9 when common work is complete

2.0 work to be done in master

All open tickets should be in play

Let’s do a ticket triage day before the Summit

  • Thursday 9/10 7:30pm (invites sent)
  • Decide which tix should be addressed before branch

Do we need a public call for features? (no)

  • Last one didn’t come up with useful feedback
  • Not looking to add features this time around

Aim for 1.9 beta in early December

  • Long beta period since we’re removing a lot

Aim for 2.0 beta … when? (1.9 beta +2 wks?)

This week: Thursday?

Tickets and PRs we need to land (mark as blocker)

  • sizzle fixes (timmywil and/or gibson042)

jQuery 1.9 & 2.0

Mark your faves as “1.9-discuss” or “2.0-discuss” in the tracker

Intentionally avoiding major rewrites in 1.9 — mostly just deletes

Intend to release 1.9 and 2.0 very close to each other

Aim for alpha after our hackfest in October?

How can we avoid the 1.9.0 bug rush?

How can we involve the community?

  • Running blog posts about changes
  • More alpha/beta releases?

Time: Noon ET

Official Agenda:

Thanks for jumping in on ticket triage!

  • General policy: jsFiddle/jsbin preferred but not required
  • Sometimes hard to repro ajax or .ready() stuff there
  • If you find out anything, make a note on the ticket

jQuery 1.8 — The Aftermath

Tickets to discuss

http://bugs.jquery.com/ticket/12269

  • .width() needs to know box-sizing now
  • Requires gCS which is 100x slow, esp in Chrome
  • Most people really want .css(“width”)
  • For now, advise that they use it \^\^
  • mikesherov to look at options for speeding up .width()

Tickets and PRs we need to land (mark as blocker)

Stumpers?

jQuery 1.8.1 for next week’s agenda

Time: Noon ET

Official Agenda:

Unit tests PASSING!

  • Occasional flakiness in timing-related tests
  • I’m tweaking the timers as they occur to reduce the odds

jQuery 1.8

Patches landed — do we need an RC2?

Final release date?

  • I’m traveling all this week but could do a release
  • Otherwise, August 7?

http://bugs.jquery.com/ticket/12158 (throws)

Leave it quoted for 1.8, warn that it’s coming out after that

“it was put in to prevent YUI compressor from breaking”

https://github.com/jquery/sizzle/pull/139(fixes to pseudo argument cases)

  • timmywil is -1
  • Need perf tests to see effects on relatively common cases

Scott has UI 1.8.22 out, compatible with core 1.8

Mobile bitten by removal of \$.attrFn! (undocumented interface)

Avoid private arguments to our public APIs

  • complicates duck punching

Minutes (Notes) of the meeting of jQuery
Location: #jquery-meeting on Freenode
Attending: DaveMethvin,
Time: Noon ET

Official Agenda:

Sizzle

Several pull requests from gibson042 to land

Should this need escaping? http://bugs.jquery.com/ticket/12087

  • NO, gibson042 to look at it

Ajax

jaubourg refactored serialize

Other things to split from ajax.js?

\$.sjax is dead, no need to create it

As of 1.8

  • use of ajaxSettings.traditional DIRECTLY with serialize() is deprecated
  • new argument to serialize() sends traditional
  • \$.ajax usage is unchanged, it will pass the flag from ajaxSettings

jQuery 1.8RC1?

Target next week

Land Sizzle fixes

jaubourg to look at issue with Deferred passed as `this` to .progress()

Fix several new bugs

  • right-click delegation

MUST be released with jQuery UI 1.8.x refresh

  • Needs fixes for Sizzle and curCSS changes

Attending: DaveMethvin, gibson042, timmywil, jaubourg, gnarf, scott_gonzalez
Time: Noon ET

Official Agenda:

Sizzle

Ajax

Need to refactor ajax dependencies to new file

  • serialize, param, parseJSON, parseXML
  • otherwise it’s hard to use other ajax impls like \$.jsonp
  • jaubourg to change

Making promises resolve async

jaubourg has a possible solution

  • separate method to resolve sync

dave will start thread in jquery-devs-team

jQuery.unique – no action to be taken

What needs to be done for beta2?

  • Full test with UI passing? timmywil says YES it’s done
  • still need to fix “:not( .foo ):has( bar )”
  • What should “:contains( asdf )” match (spaces) — gibson042′s patch fixes
  • Possible effects issue, gnarf to investigate – scott already fixed! WIN!
  • beta2 tomorrow

Minutes (Notes) of the meeting of jQuery

Time: Noon ET

Official Agenda:

1.8 release

Dave has a trip tomorrow (Tuesday)

  • Thursday 6/21? yes

Will we EVAR PASS unit tests in Jenkins?

need to use documentMode instead of ua sniff for ie8 fail

add IE=Edge to TestSwarm as well? (already there!)

https://github.com/jquery/jquery/commit/a416e2ba0d10bf1e1e94b5d023543d38ad08fcfb

  • TestSwarm already has that, and the iframe sets it, too

remaining 1.8 items: http://goo.gl/ewuKx

Anything you think should/must land?

  • animation events (already a pull)

Bugs can still be fixed after the beta

If you own a ticket and won’t get to it for 1.8, switch to 1.next

Anything happen on createContextualFragment or insertAdjacentHTML?

  • Yehuda said he had some work
  • Conclusion: pushed out of 1.8

Promises: We can’t make ours “Promise/A compliant”

  • Make sure we’re not advertising such
  • Todo: document Promise/Q

Brainstorming on \$.parseHTML

Can be looser than the \$(html) parse

  • Timmy mentioned possible fixes there
  • Would like to simplify/restrict “looks like html”
  • (starts-with “\<” has been pushed, 6/20)

Want some way to control whether scripts run

  • \$.parseHTML(html, { allowScripts: true }); ?
  • distinguish allow inline vs. external?

Manual modularity

  • Done I think
  • Plan a blog entry for it

Compat repo for deprecated/removed stuff? – Dave (still todo)

  • Separate plugins including compressed versions
  • Combined plugin with everything
  • “Debug” version with console.warn msgs?

Documentation

Deprecations – Dave DONE except for global ajax events

Animation hooks Tween etc. — gnarf DONE

Other things needing docs?

.css(‘width’) respects box-sizing, .width() doesn’t; dimension setters – mikesherov

vendor prefixing

  • automatic – ‘boxSizing’ will get ‘MozBoxSizing’
  • can create cssHooks for vendor-prefixed, which get priority over non-prefixed

git deploy: Jenkins is doing that now (before running TestSwarm)

  • needs an update in build to include commit hash, can be passed by Jenkins
