New Features in JQuery UI 1.8 That Designers Will Love

Earlier today the JQuery UI team announced the final release of JQuery UI 1.8. In case you’re not familiar with JQuery UI, it is an extension of the JQuery library that provides “abstractions for low-level interaction and animation, advanced effects and high-level, themeable widgets, built on top of the jQuery JavaScript Library, that you can use to build highly interactive web applications.”

The new version of JQuery UI brings about some exciting new additions:

Position Elements with Ease

You can now position any element relative to another element, the browser window or even mouse/cursor using simple syntax. For designers, this is especially useful in getting rid of complex CSS code to place elements relative to the browser window, such as horizontally and vertically centering a dialog window or correctly positioning a tooltip.
