It is not clear where they live. What is clear is that they are unresponsive. Is there any more point to jQuery Mobile? The much vaunted merge with jQuery UI is probably not worth much either. jQuery UI is starting to look old fashioned and still lacks many of the key components that you need to create great UIs. There are smaller, nimbler frameworks that provide a great deal more out-of-the-box.
I believe they are still updating and meeting notes not always get posted on the web site but they update on the google docs document (view meeting agenda) which sometimes get converted to the meeting minutes
Sad that the progress they are making is kinda slow, I assume may move to other alternatives as progress is not visible
I have, sadly, already moved on. There is very little progress and anything that happens now is going to be too little and too late. Even the much vaunted synchronization with jQuery UI is really not worth very much - Interfaces created in jQuery UI now have a distinctly jaded look about them. One can do a whole lot better with Bootstrap and, to boot, it is mobile friendly right out of the box.
I think the following article from 01/2016 summarizes the situation quite well: http://www.gajotres.net/why-jquery-mobile-is-not-relevant-any-more/. Since I am maintaining a rather complex JQM based app project, I hope there will be at least updates / bugfixes in the future as a framework switch (to Ionic or React / TouchstoneJS) would be rather complex :(
I'm still standing behind my words (gajotres.net is my blog), both jQuery Mobile and jQuery UI are obsolete frameworks. Only a miracle can make them viable again, or the complete overhaul and a new framework in the background (which is again equal to a miracle).
My advice, switch to Ionic framework if you're working on a hybrid mobile application or Bootstrap/Foundation if you need a responsive UI.
Alas, it seems to me we are at the mercy of the needs of the major sponsors.
I think that JQM has a place - there are many use cases for a UI framework without an MVC framework. And jQuery with Bootstrap is really NOT enough - it doesn't support page transitions, for example.
But JQM is now WAY out of date. It needed to support multiple, sub-page containers ages ago.
Watusi made me realize that so far none of the alternatives suggested by Gajo are in the same category as JQM. Namely, if someone is looking for these properties:
(1) usable without an MVC framework (2) has every basic UI widget (3) supports page transitions
then requirement (1) excludes Ionic which is tied to Angular, requirement (2) excludes Onsen UI which lacks a "select menu" widget, and requirement (3) excludes UI-only frameworks like Bootstrap. Not everyone can "abandon ship" if the proposed alternatives are submarines and hovercraft.
Can anyone name a good alternative framework that satisfies all 3 criteria? Framework7 maybe? Could it be that JQM is still the best option in its category?
And, so, I don't need all the MVC cruft that most of the alternative frameworks bring.
My current work does use Bootstrap, though, as there wasn't a desire for page transitions, and client already had existing code using Bootstrap.
So, *generally*, each page is a new document.
However, there are a cluster of pages (think master/detail drill-down) that would perform poorly if implemented with document reload. So, I had to emulate JQM pages for part of the app. As transitions weren't required/desired, I just have to show/hide the "page"s (using CSS).
You COULD do transitions in this manner, but a lot of custom code and CSS, or else you wind-up essentially writing your own framework.
Got to believe there are others with similar needs.
The vast majority of hybrid mobile apps are PhoneGap/Cordova, where an MVC is a welcome feature. For my use, though, it is unwanted complication.
