insertAfter() and insertBefore() should also return the inserted elements. Currently, only the first element is returned e.g.:

Oops, yeah a silly bug. I should have a fix soon, thanks for the catch.

As for the documentation, the inline docs for each of the mentioned methods talks about the nodes in the current node list are returned and not the queries nodes, in the "description" area of the inline docs. Is the wording just bad or where you expecting that kind of text somewhere else in the inline docs?

Some functions describe the returned value in the "returns" area, but in many places the returned value is described in the function description. The documentation would be more consistent if the "returns" area was added for all functions that return a value.
