This is a quick hit, hopefully to help someone avoid spending the half day I just did.

The older versions of sinon.js, a helpful javascript testing tool which lets you mock up and stub out objects, do not work with jquery 2.0.  Even though 2.0 is API compatible with the 1.x series, apparently some different stuff happens under the covers.  This is an issue for me because a few months ago, I followed these instructions to set up our testing infrastructure, and used sinon.js version 1.4.2.  That worked fine with jquery 1.8.2, but when I upgraded everything, tests where I mocked up server calls failed–the backbone model’s parse method was never called.

The answer?  Use at least version 1.7.1 of sinon.js.
