Are there plans for DNN to upgrade the internally hosted JQueryUI version?
We are encountering numerous breaking changes when we attempt to upgrade our skin JQueryUI themes beyond v 1.8, which is the generation that DNN was designed against.
When we go back to v 1.8 & working tabs, we lose the ability to generate our theme from ThemeRoller, we lose functionality available in the later versions of JQueryUI (Tooltip, JQuery Menu, Spinners & more).
DNN’s decision to integrate JQueryUI at a global level to its interface is a good move, but it must be kept up to date or it limits a customer’s ability to customize the theme & use JQueryUI - pretty much an interface standard these days. I believe a lot of people were hoping this would be fixed with DNN v7 but it has not, yet. Hoping someone from DNN can comment on these problems and any plans to resolve.
