    I created a SPA project and I'm keeping updating all the references to the newest version. Is it good practice?

    No, it's probably not good practice unless you know the breaking changes of the versions and like to deal with it by extensively testing them.

    For example, jquery 1.8 -> 1.9 had a few breaking changes that might affect how jquery handle empty JSON response. 

    I will update the lbraries to newest stable version if I'm updating the project with major version change or need new features from the new libraries...

    Thanks. I just updated the hot towel project's bootstrap 2.0 and durantal 3.0 and the layout is messed up.

    Is there a new version of hot towel now?

    I'm trying to recreate from scratch my Hot Towel project, it's still unsuccessfull in Visual Studio 2013 RC and new Hot Towel. We can not just update using nuget. I did this already.

    Still a lot thing to try. Have fun
