jQuery 3.1.1 is now available!
This release includes some bug fixes and improvements. As with all patch version releases, there are no new features or intended compatibility issues (if upgrading from jQuery 3.0+) in this release.
Please try out this new release and let us know about any issues you experienced.
GitHub changelog: 3.1.1
You can get the files from the jQuery CDN, or link to them directly:
You can also get this release from npm:
npm install firstname.lastname@example.org
Sometimes you don’t need ajax, or you prefer to use one of the many standalone libraries that focus on ajax requests. And often it is simpler to use a combination of CSS and class manipulation for all your web animations. Along with the regular version of jQuery that includes the ajax and effects modules, we’ve released a “slim” version that excludes these modules. All in all, it excludes ajax, effects, and currently deprecated code. The size of jQuery is very rarely a load performance concern these days, but the slim build is about 6k gzipped bytes smaller than the regular version – 23.6k vs 30k. These files are also available in the npm package and on the CDN:
These updates are already available as the current versions on npm and Bower. Information on all the ways to get jQuery is available at https://jquery.com/download/. Public CDNs receive their copies today, please give them a few days to post the files. If you’re anxious to get a quick start, use the files on our CDN until they have a chance to update.
Many thanks to all of you who participated in this release by testing, reporting bugs, or submitting patches, including Oleg Gaidarenko, Michał Gołębiowski, Richard Gibson, Alexander Lisianoi, Steve Mao, Dave Methvin, and the whole jQuery team.
