Hi guys, just in-case you didn’t know, there’s a new version of jQuery out which contains a few enhancements and bug fixes.

This is a minor point release of jQuery. We’re releasing it fix a couple issues that came up during the release of jQuery 1.6.3. You can get the code from the jQuery CDN: http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.6.4.js

You can help us by dropping that code into your existing application and letting us know that if anything no longer works. Please file a bug and be sure to mention that you’re testing against jQuery 1.6.4.

We want to encourage everyone from the community to try and get involved in contributing back to jQuery core. We’ve set up a full page of information dedicated towards becoming more involved with the team. The team is here and ready to help you help us!
