I've just added a new set of jQuery extern. Compared to the old extern, which is incomplete and made for an old jQuery version (1.6.4), the new extern is complete and up-to-date.

The new extern is located in the new js.jquery package. The old extern has not been removed (but will be deprecated soon), so existing code base will still work. To use the new extern, consult the comparison table as follows:

old extern new extern
jQuery API version partial 1.6.4 complete 1.12.2 / 2.2.2
jQuery reference in output js.JQuery $
embedding jQuery in output use -D embed-js (removed in haxe 3.3) use haxe.macro.Compiler.includeFile
import statement import js.JQuery; import js.jquery.*;
jQuery.Event js.JQuery.JqEvent js.jquery.Event
haxe helper js.JQuery.JQueryHelper js.jquery.Helper
is JQuery iterable? yes, Iterable<JQuery> yes, Iterable<Element>

For jQueryExtern users: You're encouraged to switch to this new std extern, if you're not using any of the advanced functionalities, which will be reimplemented to work for the new std extern. The jQueryExtern lib will eventually become a drop-in replacement to the new std extern with the advanced functionalities. However, I haven't started the work on this end yet.

Documentation in the manual and more tests will be added once the extern is finalized.

Any feedback is much appreciated!

Nop. It will be in 3.3 if there is no sudden change.
