After migration from 1.3.2 to 1.4.3, the code to disable checkboxes does not work anymore:

$('#box1').prop('disabled', true).checkboxradio('refresh');

The checkbox cannot be clicked anymore, but the style is not adjusted (still looks like an enabled checkbox). When the checkbox is already disabled in the static HTML code from the server, the disabled styles are applied.

I've prepared two JSFiddles with the same code:
http://jsfiddle.net/gXgQ7/1/ (jQuery 1.9.1, jQM 1.3.2, working)
http://jsfiddle.net/S6fpr (jQuery 2.1.0, jQM 1.4.3 not working)

Tested on Chrome 36.0.1985.125, Windows 7

@lukaseckert Dang! This is a regression! Fortunately, there's an alternative way of disabling a checkbox:

$( "#my-checkbox" ).checkboxradio( "option", "disabled", newValue );

This will take care of both the prop and the appearance.

This is not correctly fixed, since for some reason, other parts of the checkboxradio code look at a separate options.disabled instead of just looking at the element's disabled property. The fix correctly sets or unsets the "ui-state-disabled" class, but the separate options.disabled property is not being updated. Here's an example showing a non-disabled checkboxradio that acts as if it's not being clicked because of the incorrect state of options.disabled:
