Internet & Networking "As promised, this version leaves behind the older Internet Explorer 6, 7, and 8 browsers. In return it is smaller, faster, and can be used in JavaScript environments where the code needed for old-IE compatibility often causes problems of its own. But don't worry, the jQuery team still supports the 1.x branch which does run on IE 6/7/8. You can (and should) continue to use jQuery 1.9 (and the upcoming 1.10) on web sites that need to accommodate older browsers."

That's why they are continuing development on the 1.x branch as well. 2.0 requires a newish browser while 1.x will continue support and as IE8 usage dies so will usage of the 1.x branch.
