jQuery upgrade on Wikimedia cluster
On October 11 between 07:00 and 08:00 UTC, I will upgrade jQuery from
version 1.3.2 to 1.4.2 on all Wikimedia wikis. See [1] for details,
including a link to a list of backwards-incompatible changes between
the versions. Since we've been using 1.4.2 in trunk for a while now
and most breaking changes were crazy edge cases anyway, I don't expect
much if any JS breakage. User/site scripts and gadgets may or may not
break, but there's probably not many using jQuery (since jQuery only
got enabled on every page about a month ago) and most of those that do
use jQuery won't hit the edge cases that 1.4.2 breaks.

If you are the author of a user/site script or gadget, please do check
it for jQuery 1.4.2 compat just to be sure. If stuff breaks, feel free
to poke me on IRC and I'll help troubleshoot.
