The jQuery Mobile team announced today that you can start playing with version 1.3 right now. As a bonus you can report any bugs and help them get ready for the 1.3.0 stable.
Check it out the beta demos now!
So what is new in 1.3?
- Sidebar panels (think of the Facebook or Google+ app where the menu slides out in a panel)
- Responsive Tables
- Column Toggle
- More RWD friendly
- Range Slider
- Responsive Grids
- Navigate event method
- Page transitions with support for IE10 and Windows Phone 8!
- New search option for the Listview (like type-ahead, only with list items!)
- Dialog now has a close button option
- Popup modal click-to-close option (now you can tap/click out of the window and it does not close.. or does, all configurable)
- and MORE!
Also, the beta ships with jQuery 1.8.3, however when the 1.3.0 final ships it will run on the shiny-new jQuery 1.9! Congrats to both jQuery teams for their epic work and release schedules!
