ajaxSend in version 1.5 no longer sets headers in requests

The ajaxSend method in version 1.5 does not set headers in the request using setRequestHeader

The same functionality is working fine in version 1.4.4


$('body').ajaxSend(function(evt, req, opt) {




The above code correctly sets a header called X-User using 1.4.4 but not in version 1.5

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project by writing a bug report.

Sadly your jsFiddle isn't a test case it's just the same non functional code of piece you posted in the original report. I went ahead and made a working test case.

This was a bug in jQuery 1.5 that has already been fixed. You can verify that with my test case or by trying the current 1.5.1rc1 version. This fix will be included in the 1.5.1 release.
