Official Agenda:

AGENDA for Mon Jan 17 Noon jQuery Meeting
Duration is 1 hour, so please keep comments brief and to the point to facilitate discussion on all topics



  • Timeline for official plugin B2s (tmpl, datalink, global). End of Jan reasonable? Impacts UI Grid timeline.
  • jquery-global
    • Joern moved functions from $.* to $.global.*
    • Proposal to create globalization interface methods (such as $.format and $.parseFloat, $.parseDate) at $.* and leave jquery-global implementations in $.global.*. This would allow for alternate implementations while still providing a standard interface for plugin developers to target/use. Including jquery.global.js would import implementation and alias/proxy $.* to $.global.*. For this to be effective, the $.* methods dummy/interface methods would need to be added to jQuery core so all plugin authors could make use of them.
