Topic: Should a plaintext version of jQuery be appended as part of FuncUnit.

Makes FuncUnit more portable
Potentially easier to use

Deceptive, and counters the doc
Questionable as to which version of jQuery is being used, if users specify a different version.

CanJS 3.5 has been released!

  • Problem: simulating typing [shift] because it gets interpreted as a modifier key
  • Solution: need to support escaping, e.g. \[shift]
