Its out! A version of the jQuery validation plugin that I call 1.0 final.
I hope to improve the versioning of the plugin from this point on. On my list of possible milestone targets are more sophisticated event-handling per-element, a lot of integration examples with other plugins and libraries like date- and timepicker, masked input plugin and richtext editors like TinyMCE and FCKEditor. A long term target is to provide the necessary integration code for different serverside frameworks like CakePHP, Rails or JSF.
