Incorrect JQuery Documentation (or a bug)

Reported by: Owned by:
Priority: low Milestone: None
Component: attributes Version: 1.7.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

The documentation for .prop (''To maintain backwards compatability, the .attr() method in jQuery 1.6.1+ will retrieve and update the property for you so no code for boolean attributes is required to be changed to .prop().'') seems to be incorrect; changing the checkbox from its original state returns 'undefined' when using the deprecated .attr('checked')

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project! Please provide a complete reduced test case on jsFiddle to help us assess your ticket.

Additionally, be sure to test against the jQuery Edge version to ensure the issue still exists. To get you started, use this boilerplate: Open the link and click to "Fork" (in the top menu) to get started.

Keep in mind undefined for the attribute is the correct value if the checked property is false.
