+$The upshot of this change has been a reduction in file size. The jQuery team stated the final 2.0.0 file is 12 per cent smaller than the 1.9.1 file, mostly due to the “elimination of patches that were only needed for IE 6, 7 and 8”. Android 2.x support is reportedly now also in the firing line, with market-share being closely monitored, until Android 2.x can be crossed off the support list. “We don’t expect it to take very long,” remarked the blog post.
+$Developers .net spoke to seemed positive about the new release. “I was very pleased to see that jQuery 2.0 has made such significant improvements to the overall build size,” thoughtAddy Osmani，谷歌开发程序工程师。“12%的减少并不是一项小壮举，许多开发人员都专注于减少移动网络请求的字节，因此提供一个极简的10 KB(Gzip)构建是非常棒的。”
+$Osmani added that “dropping ‘oldIE’ support was also welcome,” and inline with the web community’s “march towards optimising for modern web browsers”. Developer and writer杰克富兰克林+$agreed that the latest release was “great news for those developers lucky enough to not have to support older browsers,” but he wanted to emphasise jQuery’s consideration for those who aren’t so fortunate: “For those of us—like me—who still have to support those browsers, we won't notice the difference, because the jQuery team will continue to support, maintain and develop 1.x in tandem with 2.x, with 1.x including the legacy browser support.”
