User Guide form validation rules, decimal rule misleading #1149

I noticed this in the User Guide for form validation rules:
(Also an issue in previous versions)

The rule for decimal states that it accepts a parameter and: "Returns FALSE if the form element is not exactly the parameter value."

This seems to imply that you can give it a value and it will return false if that values do not match. Looking at Form_validation.php the decimal function only takes the input string and verifies that it is in fact a decimal number. I'm sure this is the intended functionality, but perhaps the documentation should be changed.


Fixed (see the referenced commit above) ... that was probably copied from 'matches'.

  Allow arrays to be used for enum/set constraint. This was working in MySQL but not MySQLi.
  Bumped CodeIgniter's PHP requirement to 5.2.4. Yes I know PHP 5.4 just came out, and yes I know PHP 5.3 has lovely features, but there are plenty of corporate systems running on CodeIgniter and PHP 5.3 still is not widely supported enough. CodeIgniter is great for distributed applications, and this is the highest we can reasonably go without breaking support. PHP 5.3 will most likely happen in another year or so. Fingers crossed on that one anyway...
