Release: Validation Plugin 1.7

An update for the jQuery validation plugin is available. Most important: Its now fully compatible with jQuery 1.4.2, and still fully compatible with jQuery 1.3.2. I didn’t test with 1.2.6, but it should work, too.

There are four new localizations: Lithuanian, Greek, Latvian and Hebrew. The Spanish localization got a few improvements (I fully trust my contributors on that). Someone also contributed phoneUK and mobileUK methods, which can be found in additional-methods.js (while adding those, I renamed the phone-method to phoneUS).

And as a first proof of concept, there is now a demo styled with jQuery UI Themeroller classes. I’ll improve that when form support gets better in jQuery UI (planned for 1.9).

Download this release.

The full changelog:

The right place for support changed a bit – the mailinglist is no more, replaced by a much cooler forum:

  • Please post questions to the official Using jQuery Plugins Forum, tagging your question with (at least) “validate”. 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 bug tracker (requires registration).

    The themed form looks awesome!

  3. Thanks for your superb validation plugin, still by far the best out there!

    Thought I might also mention that there’s a useful extension for the credit card validation logic here:
