jQuery is now at version 1.11.1 (and also 2.1.1, but I am not interested in that yet). I am using version 2014.1.403 of the Telerik controls now, which uses jQuery 1.9.1. From looking at the demos, it looks like the latest 2014.2.724 also uses jQuery 1.9.1.

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

Hello Dan,

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.

Hello,

 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.

Thank you!

Hi Tom,

Kendo UI officially supports jQuery 2.1.* since its latest release and you can utilize this feature by downloading its 2015 Q2 version.

Hello, thank you for your reply. I updated a project that previously used jQuery 1.8.2 and Kendo 2013.1.514 to jQuery 2.1.4 and Kendo 2015.2.624. Chrome displayed an 'msie' undefined error and when I researched this it looks like jQuery removed the browser.msie object from all versions starting with 1.9. The new Kendo files seem to use this object extensively so I guess I'm confused - or possibly I missed something? Is there a new version of Kendo that does not use this deleted object? I downloaded Kendo from the DevCraft downloads page. Thank you!

Hi Dan,

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.
