link Style of cherry-picked commits

link $.when changes for single-argument case

  • https://github.com/jquery/jquery/issues/2018
  • Definitely should eliminate the reuse of the incoming Deferred for the return value
  • What about when the single arg is an Array? Keep current behavior, too big an API break
  • Basically, one arg is Promise.cast(), multiple is Promise.all()
  • Need better docs for $.when if an array is passed

link Formatting ticket and issue references

link Pull Requests and Issues

link Build on Windows

  • The node-smoke-test won't work on Windows and node 0.10 without a bunch of stuff installed incluing Visual Studio
  • Fixed with io.js or node 0.12 but who knows when they arrive
  • For now, can work around with grunt dev, ignore npm install error that doesn't affect the working of other things
