Removed deprecated event aliases

.load(), .unload(), and .error() methods departed from the jQuery 1.8 ,now it removed from jQuery 3.0 onward.

so dont use it with following implementation

//removed .load method from jQuery 3.0 
.load(function() {
  // other code goes here  
now use with following implementation load method

.on( "load", function() {
  // other code goes here

requestAnimationFrame API used for jQuery Animations .

jQuery will now use requestAnimationFrame API for animations , which give good smooth animation with less CPU usage and on less power consumption .

its backend change so you don t need to worry for it when you upgrading your plugin or script.

jQuery.Deferred is now Promises/A+ compatible .

jQuery.Deferred objects have been updated for compatibility with Promises/A+ and ES2015 Promises means

Legacy behavior can be restored by replacing any use of .then() with the now-deprecated .pipe()

jQuery custom selectors like :visible/:hidden. had 1600% improvement on speed

  Selectors :hidden/:visible was slow , it is improvized in the jQuery 3.0 and make it 1600% faster by using simple rule :: "Check existing selector cache and skip matchesSelector when possible "

so in jQuery 3.0 , improved performance of selector extensions when called multiple times.

:.unwrap()  method can take any arguments

  Before jQuery 3.0 , .unwrap() method simply removes the parent of selected elements, and accepts no arguments , but in some cases , its needed a way to be specific which wrappers to remove.

so now .unwrap( selector) take any argument for selective unwrapping.

width(), height(),   return decimal value

  Before jQuery 3.0 , width(), height() return rounded value. so if 3 div inside of a 100px element , width(), height() will return 33% for each div in previous version of jQuery . now it return 33.333%

this change usefull for layout calculations in UAs that do subpixel layout.
