jQuery Library for SharePoint Web Services (SPServices) v0.7.1 Beta 1 Available

1 minute read

Today I’ve posted the first beta for SPServices v0.7.1. While it is only a point release, it contains more significant changes than its sibling, v0.7.0, which was mainly focused on publishing a version which would work with jQuery 1.7.

If you are willing and able, I’d appreciate you testing this beta in any places where you are currently using earlier versions of SPServices so that you can help identify any regressions. I’ve made some significant changes to the core capabilities of SPServices which will make it smaller and more efficient.

Here are the full details on what is included in this release:
