Since the Official repository of tag synonyms seems to the
product-x.y format, I would suggest merging into
jquery-1.4, but I wanted to open for discussion. Also, should this be added to the tag synonyms list?
Update: I removed the jquery-1.4 -> jquery1.4 synonym, since this was backwards compared to most other thing-major.minor tag formats. Also I reversed my earlier analysis (left below for reference), the questions (< 10) tagged with the jQuery minor-minor releases just didn't justify keeping those tags, they're now under jquery-1.4.
I would recommend against merging the minor releases, there are issues in each release, for example a common question is about the
change event not bubbling in IE (causing
.live('change', func) breaks). This issue is specific to 1.4.1 and fixed in 1.4.2 (along with many event questions).
I would recommend mapping:
- jquery1.3 (32) -> jquery-1.3
- jquery1.3.2 (8) -> jquery-1.3.2
- jquery1.4 (18), jquery14 (2) -> jquery-1.4
- jquery1.4.1 (1) -> jquery-1.4.1
- jquery1.4.2 (8) -> jquery-1.4.2
Update: I moved the jquery1.x.x tags to jquery-1.x.x to at least normalize the formatting for now, there are still a number of jquery1.3 and jquery1.4 out there that need a bulk retag.
