Release: Password Validation plugin 1.0.0

I’m happy to announce the first release of the Password Validation plugin, an extension for the jQuery Validation plugin.

This plugin extends the jQuery validation plugin, providing two components:

  • A function that rates passwords for factors like mixed upper/lower case, mix of characters (digits, special characters), length and similarity to a username (optional).
  • A custom method for the validation plugin that uses the rating function to display a password strength meter, requiring the field to have a “good” rating. The text displayed can be localized.

More details can be found on the new plugin page.
