jQuery Mobile RC 2 Available

jQuery Mobile 1.0 Release Candidate 2 is now available for download and testing. The team is excited to announce that as of RC2, we have now covered all target platforms outlined within our graded browser matrix. This means that we currently have support for the majority of all modern desktop, smartphone, tablet, and e-reader platforms. Also, since we use a progressive enhancement approach, we are able to support feature phones and older browsers.

Some of the key changes for RC2 include:

  • Expanded support for HTML5 date, time and color input types
  • New helper class for hiding elements in an accessible way
  • Custom selects: now work in controlgroups
  • Fixed toolbar improvements
  • New: Theme vs. structure stylesheets
