jQuery 3.0 released

jquery logo

Even though the last few years most developers prefer JavaScript frameworks like Angular, React, Ember etc the vast majority of websites still use jQuery at least in some parts. Today the jQuery team released the final version the jQuery 3.0. It has a number of fixes and improvements. One noticeable difference is that now you can also find a slim version of jQuery without modules like ajax so that you can use another library instead if you want and save some kilobytes. You can download the new jQuery from this here. Have a look below for the change log.
