Subject Re: [validator] Towards a release
Date Mon, 29 Aug 2005 05:06:08 GMT
Thats my memory as well - the main change being inheritance, plus a few bug
fixes and deprecations being removed. Personally I haven't tried out
inheritance, so I can't vouch for it - but releasing a beta might prompt a
wider audience to give it a go. The main "hurdle"IMO to people moving or
trying out validator 1.2  is going to be the fact that the deprecated arg0 -
arg3 elements have been removed. If people are still using them, then they
can't simply drop in their existing validation.xml file and give it a go.
