jquery-cookie v1.4.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2013-10-05 // over 9 years ago
    • 👌 Support for AMD.

    • ✂ Removed deprecated method $.cookie('name', null) for deleting a cookie, use $.removeCookie('name').

    • $.cookie('name') now returns undefined in case such cookie does not exist (was null). Because the return value is still falsy, testing for existence of a cookie like if ( $.cookie('foo') ) keeps working without change.

    • 📦 Renamed bower package definition (component.json -> bower.json) for usage with up-to-date bower.

    • 👻 Badly encoded cookies no longer throw exception upon reading but do return undefined (similar to how we handle JSON parse errors with json = true).

    • ➕ Added conversion function as optional last argument for reading, so that values can be changed to a different representation easily on the fly. Useful for parsing numbers for instance:

      $.cookie('foo', '42');
      $.cookie('foo', Number); // => 42
