We're going through a security audit, and one of the requirements is to ensure that any jQuery usage is v3.0 or newer. Unfortunately, RTP loads very old jQuery (1.8.3 - released Nov 2012) and jQuery UI (1.9.2 released Nov 2012) dependencies.
I understand that it is possible to file a ticket for Customer Support to remove those autoloaded dependencies -- usually so that you can take advantage of an instance of jQ that might already be loaded on-page.
But what I'm curious about is whether anyone is taking advantage of this option, AND is using RTP with much newer versions of jQuery (>=3.0) + jQuery UI? I'm having a difficult time figuring out a way to test this without pre-emptively having Customer Support disable autoloading of those libraries.
Any experience or insights from the community would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
