jQuery Mobile RC 3 Available

jQuery Mobile 1.0 Release Candidate 3 is now available for download and testing. We had originally planned on going directly to final, but we’ve been fixing lots of bugs and making performance tweaks and wanted to make sure 1.0 final was solid. Unless we find a serious regression, RC3 will become 1.0 final later this week, so consider this a preview.

Some of the key changes for RC3 include:

  • Page enhancement performance improved
  • New config switch for turning off automatic link handling
  • Support for specifying an overlay theme for both dialogs and custom select menus
  • More documentation
  • Lots of bug fixes

One important detail to note is that jQuery Mobile 1.0 is being tested and released against jQuery 1.6.4. We will officially switch over to jQuery 1.7 in the jQuery Mobile 1.1 release.
