jQuery and jQuery UI added to Mura CMS admin

Developers have always been able to use jQuery with Mura CMS for their front-end templates, but we've now switched the Mura CMS Admin to use jQuery as the main javascript library. (If you're a Prototype fan, no worries; it's still included with Mura CMS). 

This opens up a whole new set of possibilities for updates to the Admin capabilities (did someone say drag & drop?), as well as providing more tools for plugin development, including default access to jQueryUI library.

If you use the auto-updater to update your core files, you'll have the new jQuery functionality provided for you instantly (if things look funny after the update, just empty your browser cache and you'll be all set). It's quite a big deal, and we're really excited about the potential this provides for improvements to the editing experience in Mura CMS.

We'll be posting more info about this in the next few weeks, so stay tuned for more jQuery goodness!
