    Complete transition to jQuery library Link to this post

    In Wikipedia at

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SilverStripe

    it says the following

    [START OF EXTRACT]
    Notable features of upcoming releases of SilverStripe include:

    Complete transition to jQuery library (currently uses jQuery with a mixture of older JavaScript frameworks.)
    [END OF EXTRACT]

    At the time of writing this post, the above Wikipedia article was last updated in Oct 2013.

    Has the latest release of Silverstripe now made a complete transition to the jQuery library?

    If not does anyone know if this is on the horizon and when this is likely to come to fruition?

    The last version I used was Version 2.4.7. Silverstripe then used a mixture of older JavaScript frameworks such as Prototype in addition to jQuery. I found that this introduced a number of issues when I tried to write my own modules which used jQuery. Unfortunately not all these issues were resolved by writing all jQuery code in a closure and swapping the $ prefix with the jQuery prefix. In fact I found myself fighting with require and requirement statements in various modules in a bid to try to resolve conflicts.
