Unit tests PASSING!

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

Final release date?

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

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)
