Here's an announcement about the recent jQuery 1.2.6 release. We tend  
to track jQuery upgrades fairly closely, and with a 100% improvement  
in event handling, I expect we'll make the switch for Infusion 0.4,  
along with the release version of jQuery-UI which is due out early  
next week.

Their release notes are also a great example of helpful information  
about the changes that went into a particular release. We may want to  
take inspiration from them for our own future releases.

> Also, the Dimensions plugin is now part of core. The remaining

> performance improvements. This plugin has seen considerable use  
> amongst developers and plugin authors and has become a solid part of

> methods from the Dimensions plugin over the past couple releases -  
> but with the release of 1.2.6 all remaining methods are now part of  
> core.
> If you're upgrading your copy of jQuery to version 1.2.6 you can now  
> opt to exclude the Dimensions plugin from your code.
> There are plenty of other updates so please read the release note
