Some ten weeks after its first release candidate became available, and thirteen months since its initial alpha, jQuery Mobile 1.0 is finally available.
This project has been fifteen months in the pipeline so the jubilation that is conveyed by the blog announcement that a "rock solid release" has been achieved which works on every target platform - that is every popular mobile, tablet, e-reader and recent desktop browsers is well justified.
We’ve managed to speed up the page enhancement time up by 30-50% across all platforms at a minimum compared to RC2. As pages become more complex, the speedup can increase to roughly 150% which means that enhancement takes far less than half the time it did in RC2.

For this graph, jQuery form gallery page was used a test case as it has a large number of form elements that each need to be enhanced.
