* Ensure HTMLElement exists before creating Element.extend. [Tobie Langel]
* Add Number.prototype.round/ceil/floor/abs as an aliases to the respective methods in Math. Refactor to seperate number extensions from base.js. [Thomas Fuchs]
* Make Element#absolutize and Element#relativize properly use Element#getStyle. Closes #8580. [Christophe Porteneuve]
* Test library fixes: make rake dist work on Windows, only teardown if a browser is supported. Closes #8463, #8498. [Mislav Marohnić, grant]
* Change Element.insert syntax to allow multiple positions. [Thomas Fuchs]

Element.insert('foo', new Element('p').update('bar')); // defaults to bottom
Element.insert('foo', 'bar'); // defaults to bottom
* String.prototype.truncate now explicitly converts its return value into a string if no truncation takes place. This prevents possible issues with methods expecting input data that is typeof == 'string'. [Thomas Fuchs, Tobie Langel, Sam Stephenson]
* Event.findElement behaves as expected when the element passed matches the given selector. Closes #8395. [Mislav Marohnić, Tobie Langel]

* Insertion overhaul: Add Element.insert(content[, position = 'bottom']). Deprecate Insertion (kept for backwards compatibility). Make Ajax.Updater option.insertion accept both Insertion.Top or the now preferred 'top'. Closes #7907. [Tobie Langel]

* Don't call evalResponse() when an Ajax response has no Content-type header. Closes #7827. [Tobie Langel]
* Automatically strip security delimiter comments from JSON strings before evaling them. The default delimiter is '/*-secure- ... */' or you can specify your own with the Prototype.JSONFilter regular expression. If you wrap your JSON response bodies in this delimiter on the server side, rogue external sites can't hijack potentially sensitive data via <script> tags. Closes #7910. [Tobie Langel]
For more details on potential security problems, see:

$H({a:'b',c:undefined}).toQueryString() -> 'a=b&c'
$H({a:'b',c:null}).toQueryString() -> 'a=b&c='
$H('a=b&c'.toQueryParams()).toQueryString() -> 'a=b&c'
$H('a=b&c='.toQueryParams()).toQueryString() -> 'a=b&c='

* Fix an issue with serializing empty array inputs. Closes #7516. [stakadush, Mislav Marohnić]

* String.prototype.endsWith should not fail on multiple occurrences. Closes #7416. [Christophe Porteneuve]
* Add Form.Methods.request as a convenience method for serializing and submitting a form via Ajax.Request to the URL in the form's action attribute. [sam]
Options passed to request() are intelligently merged with the underlying Ajax.Request options:
- If the form has a method attribute, its value is used for the Ajax.Request method option. If a method option is passed to request(), it takes precedence over the form's method attribute. If neither is specified, method defaults to "post".
- Key/value pairs specified in the parameters option (either as a query string or as a hash) will be merged with (and take precedence over) the serialized form parameters.
* Fix $(form).serialize() in Safari and add support for extending specific tags to Element.addMethods. Closes #7358. [Andrew Dupont]
