elem.checked, .prop('checked'), or .is(':checked') should be used to check the current value of a checkbox. However, it was discussed by the jQuery team and boolean properties such as checked will function in attr as before in jQuery 1.6.1.

Thanks for the fix.

Just want to get clear with the confusions with this new attr().

Basically, from what I understand is .attr() before 1.5.2 is now represent by .prop() in 1.6

Then the question is, how about all the attribute selectors, e.g. $("input:[checked='true']");

Are they still filtering based on attribute value or property values?

Based on this example, it seems the attribute selector is filtering on property values.

So the attribute selector across the document should be renamed to property selector, cause it really confuse people.
