Sorry to ask, but I see Sphinx 0.6.5 still released with jquery 1.2. And I can't find in the hg repo a newer jquery (I might be not using hg correctly). A separate problem is that doctools.js doesn't work with a manually-replaced jquery.js 1.4…
This is trunk only, and therefore in 1.0. As I said previously, "0.6.5 will not get an update; backwards compatibility is more important than a bit more speed." (of course I should have written 0.6.x instead of 0.6.5)
Ah, I didn't realize that 0.6.5 was released before this was committed to trunk, sorry!
In any case, the problem that I have is:
Debian packaging doesn't allow embedded copies of other software, so Debian sphinx's package and any other packages that use sphinx must replace jquery.js with a symlink to the packaged version of jquery (thus in effect only one copy on the system, making sure potential security issues are dealt only in one place, etc.)
but Sphinx's doctools.js doesn't work with newer jquery, fails with a jquery.className is undefined at line 70
So I was hoping that if you include a newer jquery, you'll update doctools.js too :)
