Hello all,

This is likely the last beta before 1.9.0 final is released. It really sees a rounding off of the features that 1.9 introduces, rather than anything hugely new. Along side a few small fixes and documentation tidy ups, are there two main changes in this new beta:

- The new underscore function (_) which is the compliment of the $ function - rather than returning a jQuery object from the selector, the underscore function returns the data for the rows that were selected b the selector. The function takes the same options as the $ function. For example you can do:

[code]
table._('tr'); // get data for all rows in the table
table._('tr.selected'); // get data for rows with the class "selected"
table._('tr', {"filter": "applied"}); // get data for rows available after filtering
[/code]

The other significant change is in using mDataProp as a function. This is now a huge amount more flexible, and will be the topic of a blog post in the near future :-)
