Ticket #7065 (closed enhancement: fixed)
jquery.com referencing google CDN's 1.4 (e.g. latest version) instead of 1.4.2 (current version).

An article about using Google CDN's for hosting jQuery mentioned something unfortunate about jquery.com's particular use of the CDN itself.
Read the "Specificity is crucial" section of http://encosia.com/2010/09/15/6953-reasons-why-i-still-let-google-host-jquery-for-me/.
The max-age for "latest-version" versions on Google's CDN is 3600 seconds - that would be 1 minute. Specifying the version explicitly (1.4.2 instead of 1.4) means it would be cached for 31536000 seconds...which is one year (except, of course, on a leap year). While we do love jQuery very much...we don't really want to download it every time we want visit.
I couldn't find anywhere to file a ticket for jQuery.com, so please forgive me if this is the wrong place.
