Releases: jQuery 1.3 and Validation Plugin 1.5.1

jQuery 1.3 is out – head over to the jQuery blog release post for details. Happy third birthday, jQuery!

If you plan to update, make sure to also update the validation plugin to 1.5.1, which provides compability with 1.3 as well as 1.2.6. Other changes include:

As usual, support is available via:

  • Please post questions to the jQuery discussion list, putting [validate] into the subject of your post, making it easier to spot it and respond quickly. Keep your question short and succinct and provide code when possible; a testpage makes it much more likely that you get an useful answer in no time.
  • Please post bug reports and other contributions (enhancements, features, eg. new validation methods) to the jQuery bug tracker (requires registration). Please put [validate] into the title of a ticket.

  1. thanks for the update, Jörn.

    i was getting some really bizarre selector results in 1.3 and the validation plugin 1.5 was the culprit.

    all is well with 1.5.1. thank you!

  2. Hey Jörn!
    Do you have an update for your tooltip plugin as well!

    Thanks for your great scripts!

  3. @Dennis: Not yet, but I’m working on it.

  4. Thanks for a great plugin! Unfortunately I got a problem with the latest version (and jquery 1.3).

    I need to submit forms through links instead of input buttons. I’ve used the following code to do this:

    $(“form a.form_submit”).click(function() {
    return false;

    This used to work perfectly together with the validation plugin, but is broken since the update (the form isn’t submitted). Any ideas for a workaround, or will I need to downgrade jquery?


  5. Viktor: Please post questions like that on the jQuery mailing list. More details on the plugin page.

  6. Added a ticket on jQuery bug tracker #3967 with proposed fix

    has anyone else has run into any problems with the jQuery 1.3.1 bugfix release

  7. Matt

    Thanks for this update!

    If it helps, I’m cheering you on for the Tooltip update too 🙂

  8. @Matt: Tooltip seems to work fine with 1.3.1 – do you have any specific issues?

  9. Thank you!!!!

    I appreciate you getting this updated for 1.3 so quickly

  10. Just stumbled upon this validation project. Great work, keep it up.
    Looking forward to integrate this to TurboGears or some other Python framework validation. Assuming nobody has done that yet.
