Release: Validation Plugin 1.11.0

A new version of the jQuery Validation Plugin is available. Once again this release brings more stability (bug fixes!), better localization (new: Malay) and improved html5 compability (min/max attributes on type=”date” now work with the min/max methods). More details on the code and feature changes in the changelog below.

Backwards compatibility is still going strong: The plugin should work with anything from jQuery 1.4.x to 1.9.x.

This is the first release to make it to the new jQuery Plugins site.

The full changelog:

  • Remove clearing as numbers of `min`, `max` and `range` rules. Fixes #455. Closes gh-528.
  • Update pre-existing labels – fixes #430 closes gh-436
  • Fix $.validator.format to avoid group interpolation, where at least IE8/9 replaces -bash with the match. Fixes #614
  • Fix mimetype regex
  • Add plugin manifest and update headers to just MIT license, drop unnecessary dual-licensing (like jQuery).
  • Hebrew messages: Removed dots at end of sentences – Fixes gh-568
  • French translation for require_from_group validation. Fixes gh-573.
  • Allow groups to be an array or a string – Fixes #479
  • Removed spaces with multiple MIME types
  • Fix some date validations, JS syntax errors.
  • Remove support for metadata plugin, replace with data-rule- and data-msg- (added in 907467e8) properties.
  • Added sftp as a valid url-pattern
  • Add Malay (my) localization
  • Update localization/messages_hu.js
  • Remove focusin/focusout polyfill. Fixes #542 – Inclusion of jquery.validate interfers with focusin and focusout events in IE9
  • Localization: Fixed typo in finnish translation
  • Fix RTM demo to show invalid icon when going from valid back to invalid
  • Fixed premature return in remote function which prevented ajax call from being made in case an input was entered too quickly. Ensures remote validation always validates the newest value.
  • Undo fix for #244. Fixes #521 – E-mail validation fires immediately when text is in the field.
As usual:
  • 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; 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 GitHub issue tracker
