Extending Jquery Question

Hi Author,

I am not using Jquery as of the moment since I am working on an internal framework but I just would like to know if there had been lots of changes in extending Jquery in its current version which is 1.8?

My last account of using jquery was when it was 1.3. A lot of things might have change as I am guessing it.

Just would like to know if you could list down the best features to extend.

There have been lots of changes in jQuery between 1.3 and 1.8, including many performance gains, Ajax enhancements, a Sizzle selector engine update, new event delegation, and animation changes.

You can now extend many aspects of jQuery. Most plugins add functions that integrate into the processing of collections of DOM elements, such as graphical sliders, datepickers, etc. Other plugins extend jQuery directly to provide utility or function plugins, such as for cookie processing. In addition you can add custom selectors, animations for non-numeric values, Ajax transporters and converters, and custom events. The only limit is your imagination.
