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.

Notably, tabs are broken on module settings that incur callbacks, because cookies are no longer supported by JQueryUI v1.10, and DNN uses a cookie to preserve the last active tab. It would be better if the tabs used URL hashtags to track active tabs, or another alternative (there are many). Also some settings dialogs when cancelled will re-load the site within the dialog, instead of closing the dialog and reloading the site.

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.

This is fixed in dnn 7.1. Qquery 1.9.1 and latest ui as well. You can already test it in the beta version that was released few days ago
