Microsoft in a joint announcement with the jQuery team said that the jQuery project has accepted three plugins "jQuery Templates, jQuery Data Link, and jQuery Globalization" as official jQuery plugins. As official jQuery plugins, the plugins will be maintained as part of the jQuery project. The documentation for these plugins is also now integrated within the official jQuery documentation site.
Furthermore, in the next major release of jQuery (jQuery 1.5), the jQuery Templates plugin will be included as a standard part of the core jQuery library. This means that "jQuery Templates" functionality will be included in the jQuery.js file. And it means that developers will be able to take advantage of a standard templating library and syntax when working with jQuery.
