  • 1.2 alpha released: http://jquerymobile.com/blog/2012/08/01/announcing-jquery-mobile-1-2-0-alpha/
    • Great reaction so far, no major issues reported
    • We will continue to make smaller improvements and fixes next week as we wait for people to test
    • Try to get to final in 3-4 weeks max
  • Upgraded to the 1.9 widget factory
  • Many utilities are decoupled from core dependencies. Touch events, orientationchange, and virtual mouse bindings from jQM can be used standalone with the download builder are now 7k min/2.8kb gzip'd.
  • Roadmap: next
  • Working on a new logo for the project, concepts to be circulated soon

  • Builder seems to stop working randomly, have to investigate
  • Should we re-introduce $.support.touch? issue #4786 - was removed as part of decoupling, will do some analysis and try to bring this back for the next 1.2 release.
  • Listview filter improvements - landed post-1.2 alpha
    • Add a demo showing how to use these to build an autocomplete?
  • One more listview improvement to land: issue #4133

  • TestSwarm IE

  • https://github.com/jquery/jquery-mobile/issues/4419 - the new widget factory has this._on() which nicely prevents memory leaks caused by stale attached event handlers, however, we should implement _destroy() on our widgets, because handlers attached to elements introduced during widget creation need not be removed if the elements are removed.
  • Write tests for the various funky-initial-URL cases - need a way to test when nav jumps to a page that does not have jQM
  • Post-1.2:

  • Not gone on holiday yet after all... so:
  • Added inline examples to api docs: slider, switch collapsibles, collapsible set, and select. Also completed some of those with missing info.
  • Added inline examples to api docs: select (still have to adjust the iframe sizes for those)
  • Corrected boolean options that were using double quotes in the docs.
  • helped release 1.2.0-alpha.1 (docs code changes) and minor changes elsewhere...
