Issue #1386294 by aidanlis, alexweber: Initial support for both jQuery 1.5 and 1.7 in Drupal 7.
This module's changed a lot since the Drupal 5 version:
* No more need for changing any core files! Thanks to the new Drupal 6 theming system, replacement of core's jquery.js is done for you.
* It ships with a somewhat weird version of jQuery, required by jQuery UI module, at least for now. If you want to use a different one, such as the latest 1.2.6, though, there shouldn't be a problem replacing it.
* Probably other stuff I forget. Please test. :)
