Sugar Winter '19 JavaScript updates: jQuery and more

Blog Post created by Matt Marum Employee on Dec 3, 2018

We are fast approaching the Winter '19 release into the Sugar cloud that is planned for January 2019. Some of the changes coming in this release will be upgrades to the jQuery library and associated plug-ins that are commonly used by user interface customizations to Sugar.

 

jQuery libraries upgraded from v1.12.4 to v3.3.1

 

In the Sugar Winter '19 release, we have made a significant upgrade to the jQuery versions used by Sidecar and SugarMVC (BWC) modules. 

jquery: v1.12.4 -> v3.3.1 (changelog) (Upgrade Guide)
jquery-migrate: v1.4.1 -> v3.0.1 (changelog)

 

jQuery Migrate should help maintain compatibility for custom code using older jQuery APIs. Custom code that uses deprecated jQuery APIs should be updated as soon as possible.

 

As part of the jQuery upgrade, the following jQuery plug-ins needed to be updated to be compatible with v3.3.1.


include/javascript/jquery/markitup: v1.1 -> v1.1.15 (changelog)
include/javascript/pmse/lib/jquery.layout-latest.js: v1.3.0 -> v1.6.3 (changelog)
include/javascript/jquery/jquery.timepicker.js: 1.8.8 -> 1.11.14 (changelog)

 

If you've added jQuery plug-ins to Sugar as part of your customizations, you should make sure they are compatible with jQuery 3.3.1 as well! Check out the jQuery Plugin Registry to make sure the version of the plug-in you are using is compatible with jQuery 3.3.1. If not, you may need to upgrade to a newer version of your plug-in or remove it.

 

 

This plug-in is compatible with jQuery 3.3.1.  SWEET!

 

 

We've also upgraded the Bootstrap JS library from v2.0.0 to v2.2.1 (changelog) and also moved it to a new location.

 

include/javascript/jquery/bootstrap/bootstrap.min.js (v2.0.0) has been removed
include/javascript/twitterbootstrap/bootstrap.min.js (v2.2.1) has been added 

 

If you happen to refer to the old file directly, you'll need to update your links to point to the the new location.

 

Other JavaScript library updates

While jQuery is probably the most impactful JavaScript change in this release, there are other JS libraries that you should know about.

 

Sidecar library updates

We've also made some changes to these other two Sidecar libraries. If you happen to be using them, please check out their change logs to ensure that you're still compatible.

 

sugarcrm/ventana: v1.1.1 -> v1.1.2 (changelog)
moment: v2.11.2 -> v2.22.2 (changelog)

 

Removal of JIT Chart library

The deprecated JIT chart library has been removed in this Sugar release. The JIT chart library was deprecated in Sugar 7.10 and has been replaced by Sucrose charts. Please ensure you have removed any code that uses JIT charts prior to upgrading.
