Default Jquery question

I am currently re-reviewing the chapter in your book on Jquery. I have been experimenting on my own and I have come up with the following JQuery code that I am using on your concert date photos. This is the Jquery code that I am writing:

function slideshow(){
var current = $('#photos.show');
var next = current.next().legnth ? current.next() :
SetTimeout (slideShow, 3000);
Anyhow this seems to make a nice slideshow for some of the images on your PlanetWrox website. The question I really wanted to ask are you going to maybe just as a very respectful suggestion for your new book that you say you are writing for ASP.NET 5.0, Visual Studio 2012, include maybe something like this for the new Jquery chapter of your book? It might be nice, to have just a bit of a more in depth JQuery stuff if Microsoft is going to be more heavily empasizing it in the future. Also if AJAX is being faded out by Microsoft, will a need to continue to focus AJAX be an emphasis in the future? Also it seems to me that JQuery is a very compact language more so than C, or C++. Am I correct in assuming that?
Sorry to have been such a pest, I just have a very curious mind. You have been a great help.

Thank you once again

Hi there,

Yes, in the current version I have a chapter on AJAX (server side and client side) and a chapter on jQuery (client side). Since the client side AJAX framework is indeed being phased out, I entend to put more emphasis on jQuery in the ASP.NET 4.5 version of the book. How, exactly, remains to be seen. I might include little tricks such as yours (thanks for the suggestion), or put more focus on ready-made plugins.

Only working on Chapter 1 at the moment, so there's still lots of room for change....
