This week in JavaScript

Today sees the start of  a new weekly blog series, aimed at designers and developers, where we look at the latest news in the JavaScript world. Without further ceremony lets get started…

jQuery 1.7.1 released: This release mostly includes minor enhancements, bug fixes and standardisations to the way the library works. The team will be opening the call for 1.8 suggestions shortly so if you have any features you’d like to see in jQuery head over and join in the discussion.

JSConf videos available: There are some really good talks available from this conference, some of our favourites are, How to be an open-source gangster by Marak Squires, a look at how to contribute to and create successful open source projects presented in an amusing gangster style. Polyfilling the gaps by Lea Verou takes you through the technique known as pollyfilling.

PopcornJS has reached the 1.0 milestone: Popcorn.js is an event system for HTML5 media developers. Think jQuery for video. You can leave the heavy lifting to Popcorn, and concentrate on what you do best: writing awesome code.

jQuery Fundamentals: from Rebecca Murphey is a free jQuery book that covers some basic JavaScript as well as most of the features of jQuery itself. There are notable contributions from big name developers such as James Padolsey and Paul Irish.
