an array with {name, message, element} instead of an object with id:message pairs for the internal errorList.
* Added support for specifying simple rules as simple strings, eg. "required" is equivalent to {required: true}
* Added feature: Add errorClass to invalid field�s parent element, making it easy to style the label/field container or the label for the field.

* Customize error element via errorElement option
* Added validator.refresh() to find new inputs in the form

* Fixed error label creation to use specified error class
* Added dependency feature: The requires method accepts both String (jQuery expressions) and Functions as the argument

* Fixed two major bugs in IE (error containers) and Opera (metadata)
* Modified validation methods to accept empty fields as valid (exception: of course �required� and also �equalTo� methods)
* Renamed "min" to "minLength", "max" to "maxLength", "length" to "rangeLength"
* Added "minValue", "maxValue" and "rangeValue"
* Streamlined API for support of different events. The default, submit, can be disabled. If any event is specified, that is applied to each element (instead of the entire form). Combining keyup-validation with submit-validation is now extremely easy to setup
* Added support for one-message-per-rule when defining messages via plugin settings
* Added support to wrap metadata in some parent element. Useful when metadata is used for other plugins, too.
