I was wondering if there are any plans to bring the jQuery version in SS up to a more recent version? In the 2.4 beta it is at version 1.2.6, which is now pretty old. It does not include a lot of the live() features (except through a separate plugin), something that is becoming increasingly important with heavy AJAX loading of page areas.
If I were to upgrade my own version (looking at the 2.4 beta) where would I need to change it? sapphire/thirdparty/jquery/jquery-packed.js, or is it sill stuffed into another SS "base.js" file with prototype like for SS 2.3?
A good place to keep up on the news for Silverstripe is on twitter.
There is a quite a frequent mention of Silverstripe in the twitterverse. @Silverstripe is the twitter account for Silverstripe and there are quite a few members here that are on twitter as well (Uncle Cheese, Mo, Wiilr, Ingo, Hamish...) I recommend it. Grab TweetDeck http://www.tweetdeck.com - and you will be rolling
