I’ve been snowed in and busy working, but in the last week jQuery 1.5 was released (on January 31, 2011).
You can see the announcement here:
Right on schedule jQuery 1.5 is ready for consumption!
This release has been a long time coming and has been a real team effort. Please take this opportunity to thank members of the jQuery Team and the jQuery bug triage team for their help in getting this release out the door.
