The .class syntax is a DOM thing not an SVG thing. If you are using SVG (which is XML) then you must use [class=node] instead.

Probably best with [class~=node]

This did, however, work in previous versions.

A lot of javascript uses classes on SVG elements, and jQuery selectors on those makes it pretty powerful. Checking the class attribute seems more like a work-around than 'the way to do it'
