With new WordPress 3.1 coming out soon, it’s time to check out all plugins and fix the potential problems and compatibility issues. But, this time, job of doing that is much more complicated than usually, mostly due to the changes in way WP 3.1 is loading jQuery and jQueryUI libraries.
jQueryUI loading is changed, and divided into more minor parts. So, if you have other jQuery library that depends on jQueryUI widgets, it will not work anymore, since widget library needs to be loaded now. So, check out all plugins that do that and make sure that everything is loaded as it should.
Here is the table of Dev4Press plugins and current minimal version supported. It includes upcoming versions of plugins that will be updated this week to support upcoming WP 3.1:
