JQuery Mobile Alpha 4 Released: Full WP7 Support

April 1, 2011 No Comments


The JQuery Mobile Team has just announced their release of JQuery Mobile Alpha 4. What does that mean exactly? Well it is the last Pre-Beta version that they will released for JQuery Mobile 4. The big news for us though is that they will officially be supporting Windows Phone 7. They even go as far as supporting the upcoming IE9 Mobile.

‘We’re thrilled to announce WP7 is now a supported platform and has a solid A- experience. All core features work great on both WP7 and desktop versions of IE 7 (8 & 9 are close, but not perfect). Keep in mind that WP7′s browser is fairly close to IE7 so advanced CSS features like rounded corners and drop shadows aren’t supported but the layouts and widgets all look great within the capabilities of the browser. We’ve added a polyfill to bring pseudo-media query support to this platform, which we plan to improve with a native media query interpretation at a later stage. We also plan to support the future upgrade to an IE9-based rendering engine on WP7 later this year.’

jQuery is free, open source software and is probably the most popular JavaScript library in use today.
