Host jQuery on Microsoft CDN servers

After Microsoft decided to ship and use jQuery library for its JavaScript needs in Visual Studio, hosting jQuery on Microsoft CDN servers is actually a logical and good decision. Yes, some of us might argue that Google already hosts jQuery, but Microsoft can not recommend to use its competitor’s services, can it?! :)

Anyway, intention of this post is not to discuss why Microsoft introduced its own jQuery hosted servers, bu to share links to Microsoft hosted jQuery library. Here we go:

jQuery 1.4.x

jQuery 1.3.2

Microsoft also host jQuery Validation and jQuery UI files.

Currently Microsoft AJAX CDN hosts only jQuery version 1.3.2, but they will add more releases in the future. To see a full list of the JavaScript libraries and their URLs that are already hosted on CDN cache go here:
