At last! jQuery Mobile has released a candidate for the much anticipated version 1.1 with the 'Fixed headers and Footers' fix we've been waiting for.
As discussed previously, there was no good option for Android. The third party js widgets were slow to respond, jittery and buggy.
But now we can have fixed CSS headers & footers using native page scrolling. (If you want to know why it was such an issue, see this blog and vlog by Brad Frost.)
I'm going to test it out and report my findings. Stay tuned...
