jQuery DataTables FixedColumns

I used the jquery datatables plugin recently because it was a tiny bit easier than jtable or jqgrid.  The fixed columns plugin complains about jquery.browser not being present in newer versions of jQuery (unless you use the jquery migrate plugin) and glitches if you use jquery-ui and turn off sorting.  Turns out the latest dev version fixes these issues, it just hasn't been pushed to the regular extra package zip downloads on the extras page. So, use the dev version instead of patching it yourself like I did before I realized there was a dev version.
