You asked for it, you got it: jQuery 2.0 has arrived! Oh Yes!! jQuery 2.0 is finally released and this version leaves behind the older Internet Explorer 6, 7, and 8 browsers. jQuery 2.0 is intended for the modern web. But don’t worry, the jQuery team still supports the 1.x branch which does run on IE 6/7/8. If you're upgrading from a version before 1.9, we recommend that you use the jQuery Migrate plugin.
