    I'm looking into what the effects would be to upgrade jquery to the latest version in our web site. We do currently have jquery 1.6 and would like to upgrade it to 1.11. The telerik version we use are from Q1 2011. What I would like to have a confirmation on is wheter telerik use it's own version of jquery that is not registered in the global namespace. If it is not registered gloablly I guess it would mean that our telerik components will work just fine even though we are upgrading jquery for the rest of our site.

    Hi Marcus,

    The jQuery we bring to the page is registered in the $telerik.$ variable and we use the noConflict() jQuery method to make sure we do not use the global scope variables (window.$, window.jQuery): $telerik.$ = jQuery.noConflict(true);

    We also intend to upgrade to jQuery 1.11 for the Q3 2014 release of the controls which is due in about three weeks from now.

    That being said, upgrading your own jQuery should not affect our controls and vice versa.
