Validator 0.8.6 release wraps up a year’s worth of bug fixes and code clean-up

Over the past year, millions of pages were validated every day using W3C’s services. We’d like to thank those who keeping service running smoothly by helping other users, carefully reporting problems, and developing code. We’d especially like to thank Ville Skyttä for continuing maintenance of the validator check perl script and Henri Sivonen for continuing work on the validator.nu code.

Changes in the 0.8.6 release
notes
include:

The validator.nu codebase has seen over 100 fixes and enhancements since our 0.8.5 release in March 2009.

Integration with Unicorn, a project which aims to provide the big picture about the quality of a Web page by gathering the results of several tools, has improved. Unicorn development continues with a recent release of its own and will be a focus in the coming months.

  1. Great! Now just sort out the server so the Validator is actually accessible more than 10% of the time instead of just getting “Server is not responding” messages, and we’ll be sorted!!!
