jQuery UI 1.8

Well, they released jQuery UI 1.8 two days ago, and now everything is broken. I understand why the changes were made, but it sure is inconvenient. Plugins and posts updated so far:

And on top of that, chili stopped working with jQuery 1.4 and I haven't fixed it yet. Andrea Ercolino was nice enough to send me an updated version, but I haven't gotten around to installing it yet.

Update: got chili to work!

So much for using my spare time to learn Scheme!

    I’m glad you were able to update your posts and plugins to work with the latest jQuery UI 1.8 release. I hope our Upgrade Guide was helpful in that. Your posts are quite valuable to users new and old of this under-appreciated part of jQuery UI and having them updated brings even greater value to the library.

    From here forward we should see a lot more stability in the UI Widget Factory, which means we can start encouraging its adoption even more. As we do so, I hope people find what you have here and I’ll do what I can to point them to it. Thanks for your efforts.

    Thanks for the feedback. I understand why the breaking changes were made, and I think you made the right choices (though I would have factored $.widget even further and separated the prototype-creating code from the name-creating code). It made for a long night changing everything, though!
