Microsoft to Add New Features to jQuery JavaScript Library

JQuery_logo_color_onwhite-300x74At MIX10, Scott Guthrie announced Microsoft is helping to make the jQuery JavaScript Library a primary way to develop rich JavaScript based client-side internet applications.

Microsoft is investing resources to contribute to the development of the jQuery JavaScript Library to help improve the development process of standards-based Web applications.

Microsoft will also work to provide better interoperability between ASP.NET and the jQuery JavaScript Library by enhancing ASP.NET so .NET developers can better incorporate jQuery capabilities.

Currently, Microsoft is shipping it with Visual Studio and ASP.NET MVC. Microsoft also builds features making it easier for ASP.NET developers to create rich standards-based web application using the jQuery JavaScript Library.

Microsoft to Contribute Templating Library to jQuery

At MIX10, Microsoft is announcing it will take a more active role participating in the open-source, community-driven development of the jQuery JavaScript Library.

Microsoft will work in concert with the jQuery JavaScript Library team to accelerate the creation of new features designed to simplify and expedite the creation of rich-web applications on any platform. Microsoft’s latest deliverable to the community creating the jQuery JavaScript Library is to propose a powerful templating feature that makes it easier for developers to build client-side, data-driven web applications.

Microsoft is adopting the open source approach to development used by the jQuery JavaScript Library community, meaning the community can provide direct feedback and contribute to the materials Microsoft developers contribute to the jQuery JavaScript Library. The jQuery Foundation will redistribute works provided under its licensing model.

For the benefit of developers, the jQuery JavaScript Library 1.4.1 is shipping with Microsoft Visual Studio and ASP.NET MVC. Additionally the jQuery JavaScript Library 1.4.1 is available directly on Microsoft’s Content Delivery Network.
