This plugin updates jQuery to the latest official stable version, which is most likely not available within the latest stable release of WordPress.
Since jQuery 2+ was used in this plugin, making jQuery 1.x obsolete, jQuery Migrate is also included.
No files are replaced, therefore deactivation of this plugin returns your site to it`s original state.
Please report feature requests and code changes on GitHub Issues page
If you run into any bugs, turning this plugin off will fully deactivate everything.

jQuery 2.0 has the same API as jQuery 1.9, but does not support Internet Explorer 6, 7, or 8. All the notes in the jQuery 1.9 Upgrade Guide apply here as well. Since IE 6/7/8 are still relatively common, we recommend using the 1.x version unless you are certain no IE 6/7/8 users are visiting the site.
