#056: Updating Versions of jQuery Mid-Stream

(Updated on )

As I was working on this design, jQuery 1.8 was released. This is just a quick video to rely the fact that this kind of thing happens as you develop sites and during pre-release development is the perfect time to upgrade stuff like this. We test it on a page that has the most jQuery on it as of yet and everything works great.

We upgrade the version and link it up from Google (good source for that) using a Protocol Relative URL. That doesn’t mean much right this second, but using a protocol relative URL means that if we eventually use HTTPS somewhere on the site, it will load jQuery over HTTPS automatically.
