Location: #jquery-meeting on Freenode
Time: Noon ET

Official Agenda:

42 (timmywil): .closest() fails on disconnected nodes

  1. https://github.com/jquery/jquery/pull/291

46 (john): jQuery throwing error on replaceWith

52 (gf3, cowboy): Add Function.prototype.bind() support to jQuery.proxy

  1. https://github.com/jquery/jquery/pull/133

51 (danheberden): Support relative values for .css()

  1. https://github.com/jquery/jquery/pull/78 original
  2. We wanted to see this patch DRY’ed out a bit, but we discussed in meeting and determined that it would probably introduce overhead to share this code between modules, and it’s not that much repeated code.  consensus was in favour of landing as-is. Dan is going to clean up the code a bit more.
  3. https://github.com/jquery/jquery/pull/297

valHooks (the more modest version)?

  1. https://github.com/jquery/jquery/pull/295

    • John: Looks good to me!
  2. http://jsperf.com/jq152-vs-jq16pre-trigger/3

Bumped to 1.6.x / 1.7

20 (dmethvin): Attach data cache directly to element — In process, need to create separate list for global events.
