Was this framework ever updated to Seaside 2.9a2? It probably requires
a few tweaks as it depends on some internal parts of the system.

jQuery-UI 1.6 final was supposed to be released a few weeks ago. This
still doesn't seem to have happened though. Unfortunately the release
candidate that comes with Seaside 2.9 is (partly) broken with the
final version of jQuery 1.3. It is simply too much work to adapt the
release candidates, I am currently waiting for the final version.

Note that the CSS themes of jQuery-UI were totally overhauled:
Also note that the AutoCompleter won't be part of jQuery-UI 1.6, this
is only scheduled for 1.7. See http://wiki.jqueryui.com/ for details.
