I will be updating the validation engine to version 2.0 this week, you can have a preview of the beast here. This version is a complete rewrite of the actual code, and mostly all api’s had changes, so if your upgrading, you better have a good look at the documentation (see readme).
The core of the library stayed the same, but what is wrapping is a lot better, Olivier also did a nice rewrite of the ajax validation function. I am really happy on how it turned out.
The merge should be done by the end of the week, I will also link to a legacy api and I will add the api page to the 1.7.3 bundle, so don’t worry about loosing the old documentation.
