Microsoft and JQuery

Microsoft will be shipping jQuery with Visual Studio going forward. jQuery will be distributed as JavaScript library as-is, and it will not be forking or changing the source from the main jQuery branch. The files will continue to use and ship under the existing jQuery MIT license.

Microsoft will also distribute intellisense-annotated versions that provide great Visual Studio intellisense and help-integration at design-time

The jQuery intellisense annotation support will be available as a free web-download in a few weeks (and will work great with VS 2008 SP1 and the free Visual Web Developer 2008 Express SP1).
