Issue #132 - May 31, 2013
jQuery 1.10.0 and 2.0.1 Released
Both branches of jQuery get an update. jQuery 1.10.0 follows on from jQuery 1.9 so maintains support for older browsers (i.e. IE 6, 7 and 8). The overall goal with these releases has been to synchronize features and behaviors across 1.x and 2.x.
