    I'm excited today to announce that Microsoft will be shipping jQuery with Visual Studio going forward.  We will distribute the jQuery JavaScript library as-is, and will not be forking or changing the source from the main jQuery branch.  The files will continue to use and ship under the existing jQuery MIT license.

    We will also distribute intellisense-annotated versions that provide great Visual Studio intellisense and help-integration at design-time.


    I assume they'll be using the MIT license *grin*

    The mvc has always been 'different' to what microsoft usually does, I've always thought of the mvc as a kind of experiment by microsoft, one of the key goals of the mvc was to be as customizable and avoiding the forceful 'do it our way' attitude.. having jquery seems obvious although I feel the golden advantages that jquery gives will become managed by the browsers more reliably in the future, such as the selectors api and reliable events.. I don't really use much more of jquery whenever I use it..

    I'd love jquery to get a deployment creator that lets you select the methods you're using, and the dependencies get mapped to generate a cut down js file.

    I've used jQuery on my current project, it saved me heaps of work.

    I really like it and it made me like javascript a whole lot more Wink

    They could have negotiated a different license.

    Why? It's dual licensed, so they didn't have to pick the GPL

    Well, if you would have read ScottGu's blog post (which you linked to) more carefully, you would have found out that "The files will continue to use and ship under the existing jQuery MIT license".

    EDIT: you even included that exact paragraph in your first post!
