Now that jQuery 3.0 has been released jQuery 2.x will only be receiving security updates. I know what we've had discussions about updating specific libraries in the past. But there are a few compelling reasons why we should consider updating jQuery to 3.x
Better error reporting: Apparently jQuery has add a number of actions that silently failed in the past, now fewer of those silently fail.
- A POC with jQuery3 naively applied can be made to actually evaluate the issues with it. (it may take to wait for jQueryUI to be compatible ?)
- Considering to remove deprecated APIs in current 2.x before other libs supports catch up.
