jQuery UI 1.8.20

jQuery UI 1.8.20 has been released. This release marks the twentieth maintenance release, and includes bug fixes for Draggable, Sortable, and Datepicker.

jq-quickvalidate

jq-quickvalidate (License: GPLv2, Demo) by Cedric Ruiz is a form validation plugin. The author has provided CSS and icons, so it's easy to drop into a site.

There are built-in validators, but custom ones can be added using a regular expression or function. Basic usage looks like this:

$('#my-form').quickValidate({
  inputs: {
    username: {
      filters: 'required username exclude',
      data: {
        exclude: ['Paul', 'Mike']
      }
    },
    'pass': {
      filters: 'required pass'
    }
  }
});

Fullscreen Plugin

jQuery Fullscreen Plugin (License: MIT) by Klaus Reimer is a jQuery-friendly API for working with the fullscreen mode present in supporting browsers. Vendor-specific versions are supported for WebKit and Firefox.

It can make an element or the entire document fullscreen:

$(document).fullScreen(true);
$('#myVideo').fullScreen(true);

It can also exit fullscreen, or check if fullscreen is currently active. A related plugin is jquery.fullscreen.js, which provides handling for various fullscreen-related events.
