I am using jQuery 1.10.2 and having no trouble. I would like to move to 1.11.1. I am going to try it and test everything to see how it goes. I wonder if anyone has tried this yet.
I also wonder if Telerik is going to keep up with jQuery releases. There are a lot of bug fixes and improvements

Thank you for asking this question.
The latest version (at present Q2 2014 SP1) is still using the 1.9.1 version of jQuery.
We are planning to upgrade to 1.11.1 for the Q3 2014 release that is scheduled for late October.
As for keeping up with their releases - only as long as they support the browsers we need to support like IE7 and IE8, which makes the jQuery v2 unsuitable for our suite.
I hope this clears thing up.
Check out the Telerik Platform - the only platform that combines a rich set of UI tools with powerful cloud services to develop web, hybrid and native mobile apps.
Sorry for the late (very late) follow-up post to this discussion, but does Kendo UI still not support jQuery 2.1.x? The compatibility page I found only goes up to 2.0.x and I've seen no other references, unless I missed something.
Kendo UI officially supports jQuery 2.1.* since its latest release and you can utilize this feature by downloading its 2015 Q2 version.
We have not used the $.browser object since many releases now. A possible reason for the experienced errors can be if the Kendo UI version in your project has not been upgraded properly and so the application is still referencing its old scripts (from Q1 2013). Can you verify that the script are updated properly and there are not any previously cached resources in the browser (by clearing the browser cache manually)? You can also test you application with the Kendo UI CDN service - http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/install/cdn.
