Caution, JQuery users: JQuery 1.5.1 does not work on the PlayBook simulator

Just verified it with a test app provided here and then with my own JQuery based app:

 

JQuery 1.5.1 does NOT work on the PlayBook simulator. 

 

So if you're using JQuery as your JS backend: Stick to 1.5!

Thanks for the heads up! I'm making some changes to my existing WebWorks app and updated to the latest jQuery 1.5.1 - who knows how much time you've saved me! Hope this is isolated to the simulator and gets fixed.

I posted a comment on the JQuery blog about this as well. Hope it gets sorted soon. My app works fine with 1.5 though so I'm not all that fussed about it.

Re: Caution, JQuery users: JQuery 1.5.1 does not work on the PlayBook simulator

Can you post the link to your jQuery blog comment?  Also, we should find how to run the jQuery unit tests and do so on the browser simulator.  I know they are included if you get source, but I'd like to find a public URL that hosts the tests?

 

I guess I will be careful about moving from 1.5 to 1.5.1.

They haven't approved the comment yet. It's been sitting at '12 comments' for days now. I guess at some point it will show up Smiley Happy

Re: Caution, JQuery users: JQuery 1.5.1 does not work on the PlayBook simulator

1.5.1 is broken with Playbook and its because of one moved line. However, jQuery 1.5.2pre fixes the issue so it works again. If you download the latest version from github and then make the file and use that, you will be good to go again. note: to make the minified version you will need to have node.js installed
