jQuery Mobile Project announced
The project aims to provide the necessary tools to create dynamic touch interfaces that will "adapt gracefully" to devices running different operating systems. Initially the jQuery developers plan to work on supporting all of the A and B grade browsers and they have already started planning on features to implement for the devices they plan to support, including those running MeeGo, bada, Windows Mobile, the BlackBerry OS, Android, Symbian and Apple's iOS.
The project has already received sponsorship from various mobile browser vendors, including Palm (now owned by HP) for its webOS platform and Mozilla with its Mobile Firefox browser. The developers have created a new Mobile jQuery forum and welcome feedback from the community.
More details about the jQuery Mobile Project can be found in a post on the jQuery Mobile blog by Resig. A complete strategy overview and chart of browsers that the developers plan to support are available on the project's site. jQuery is dual licensed under the MIT or GPL version 2 (GPLv2) licenses.
