jQuery 1.x

The jQuery 1.x line has major changes from previous versions. We strongly recommend that you also use the jQuery Migrate plugin if you are upgrading from older versions of jQuery or need to use plugins that haven't yet been updated. Read the jQuery 1.9 Upgrade Guide and the jQuery 1.9 release blog post for more information.

jQuery 2.x

jQuery 2.x has the same API as jQuery 1.x, but does not support Internet Explorer 6, 7, or 8. All the notes in the jQuery 1.9 Upgrade Guide apply here as well. Since IE 6/7/8 are still relatively common, we recommend using the 1.x version unless you are certain no IE 6/7/8 users are visiting the site. Please read the release notes carefully.
