This is to make you aware of a problem I encountered with setting the "Checked" attribute on checkboxe's after upgrading to jQuery 1.6...
With the introduction of jQuery's .prop() method (v1.6), using .attr() to set the checked property on a checkbox no longer works reliably. Looks like the value of an attribute is only used when it first load it into DOM... from that point forward it
is considered a property and change to the attribute value are no longer reflected.
While checking my code, I noticed several instances in SPServices (I'm running 0.6.2) where you seem to be doing the same thing. I personally have not encountered any issue with your use of it, but figure I would pass along this information.
Note that so far, I have only found a problem when setting the "checked" value of a checkbox input... The problem may be there when trying to update other attributes.
From the jQuery api for .prop():
.prop() method should be used to set disabled and checked instead of the
.attr() method. The
.val() method should be used for getting and setting value."
