jQuery User Interface is officially out

Well, I was greeted pleasantly by my RSS feeds today, it seems that the jQuery User Interface project has officially released.

This is great news, and I have to say (I’ve been using the UI components in beta) that they are brilliantly done.

This entry was made on and filed into Javascript.

So… This would rock so much with CI’s new JS Abstraction methods. Can’t wait to see it!

Actually it’s still beta version (4th) according to their blog:

I’ve used some jquery UI components few months ago and they are working very smoothly since then (e.g. - http://tax.bg/bg/calendar - in bulgarian).

Exciting, he’s here’s hoping they expand the core jQuery widgets to include things like buttons, panels, sliders, and other standard UI metaphors.

I like the hover effect on the bottom buttons. It’s cleverly-done as well.

That was supposed to be “here’s hoping”

@Miroslav: nice observation, thanks for the correction.

@Nick, I added <del> and <ins> for you, but thought it’d be funnier if they were unparsed ;)

And Elliot and Ed, just let me say I share your enthusiasm.

jQuery UI looks great; but I’m NOT impressed with it’s performance.

Using Opera 9.27 it’s animations and actions are sluggish and unusable

Nice try thusfar: but it needs to be perfectly cross-browser compatible IMO…just like jQuery is :)
