*We try to notify this list when API changes are made in Drupal 7, so
contrib and custom developers have a chance to fix their code before they
have the pain of figuring out why it's broken.
(issue <http://drupal.org/node/954804>) Contrib modules should not use
drupal_add_js() for core JavaScript files (which are all now packaged as
libraries). Instead, use drupal_add_library(). Failure to do this can mess
up the weighting of javascript files. This is true of any JS file that is
included in a library: use the library to load it.

You may also be interested in general JS/CSS
information, and also in the D7
Javascript Handbook Page <http://drupal.org/node/756722>.
