Quote from: butchs on March 03, 2012, 06:54:31 AMThe biggest risk of JQuery is it's popularity. The exploit effort always increases with popularity.There are many plugins for JQuery. Some of them are well written and other may not be or are not as complete as they could be... Good People tend to trust plugins where as bad People like to exploit them. Maybe we should have SMF approved plugins.That being said, I do not mind JQuery being added to SMF but I do hesitate with SMF depending on JQuery as it's core to function. I like to see the heart of the JS for SMF being provided by SMF.
QuoteThere you go... have SMF check for jquery updates and download them automatically? Here is a thought, why not make jquery optional by providing hooks. If it is installed then the "additional features" are be enabled. Otherwise, plan jane SMF JS.

Quote from: Thantos on April 16, 2012, 11:00:20 PMIf jQuery released a minor version that fixed some critical issue then SMF could easily release their own patch for it via the package manager.
