jQuery 1.3 Released with New High Performance CSS Selector Engine
The most notable features of the new release are:
- Sizzle which is a standalone, fully extensible and faster CSS selector engine.
- A heavily refactored event’s system
- The addition of “Live Events” that can be bound to all current - and future - elements.
- Lightning-fast HTML appending.
- Rewrite of the offset method for more speed.
- Replaced browser sniffing with feature detection, where it simulates a particular browser feature or bug to verify its existence.
As James Hart reports there seems to be a problem regarding the use of v1.3 with Visual Studio at this time:
Luckily, if you’re using a -vsdoc.js file to augment jQuery, intellisense doesn’t fail because it ignores the actual jQuery source file. Unfortunately, there’s no intellisense file for JQuery 1.3.
James has developed a JQuery 1.3 intellisense header file which as he claims is a partial solution to the problem.

Re: Nice library!
I believe there's a planned fix in 1.3.1
JQuery 1.3 Intellisense
Further down the same post I go on to explain how I've produced and made available a JQuery 1.3.0 intellisense file, based on the published API documentation from the JQuery site.
