SS + Prototype version.

SS uses Prototype.

When using validation, SS includes prototype. But this version is old. (1.4!)

To keep the total size of files small, I would like to use the library that gets included by SS.
But I really want at least 1.5 and I noticed that there already is a prototype15.js file.

As it is quite ridiculous for me to include 1.6 on top of the version that SS uses for validation, I want to know if there are any plans for upgrading this.. ( even only on the frontend side).

If I have to add the newer version as an 'extra' I could just as well use YUI, which I like a lot more. But then I would miss the whole point of keeping total size small.

I think the reason we havent upgraded is that while we use 1.4 its pretty customized to SilverStripes needs and its going to fun times upgrading to 1.6+ so its one of those things no one wants to try :P I think that prototype15 is probably someone slowly porting SS features or testing it at least. I remeber one of the GSOC students wanted to push to 1.5 so maybe someones started using it for something?

well, you got to upgrade once, no?

Even only on the frontend side.
