jQuery.browser.version for ie9 is returning '7.0'

jQuery.browser.version returns 7.0 instead of the expected 9.0 for Internet Explorer 9.0.8112.16421 64bit

Perhaps I have done something incorrectly however someone smarter should probably take a look

thank you.

If you're in compat mode, you will get the IE7 UA string which is what jQuery.browser.version is derived from

If you're in quirks mode too, or don't specify a doctype, IE will try its best to figure out what compat mode to use too, and that might set it to 7.0

I have the problem too and i'm using IE 9.0.8112.16421 on Seven 64bits.

I'm not in compat mode and I have the following doctype in my page :

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-W3CDTD XHTML 1.0 TransitionalEN" "">

But whatever ? Am I missing something ?

I would argue this needs opening, I'm getting the same result with <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-W3CDTD HTML 4.01EN" "">
