Release Notes

New Functionality

Issue Tracker Item Function Operation Description
NA $().SPServices.SPSetMultiSelectSizes NA Sets the sizes of the multi-select boxes on a form automagically based on the values they contain. The function also takes into account the fontSize, fontFamily, fontWeight, etc., in its algorithm.
NA $().SPServices.SPScriptAudit NA The SPScriptAudit function allows you to run an auditing report showing where scripting is in use in a site.
NA $().SPServices.SPCascadeDropdowns NA Added a new promptText option. This option will determine whether a prompt is shown in dropdowns. If the value of promptText is empty (zero length), then no prompt will be displayed. This will, in effect, make the first value selected.
NA $().SPServices.SPGetLastItemId NA Added CAMLQuery option to allow additional filtering.

New Operations

Web Service Operation Options MSDN Documentation
Lists GetListContentType [webUrl], listName, contentTypeId Lists.GetListContentType Method
GetListContentTypes [webUrl], listName* Lists.GetListContentTypes Method

* Note that the SDK says that contentTypeId is a required parameter for GetListContentTypes. It is not, and in fact it is ignored if present.

Bug Fixes and Efficiency

Issue Tracker Item Function Operation Description
NA All which utilize $().SPServices.SPGetCurrentSite. NA Improved efficiency by reducing the number of calls to WebUrlFromPageUrl. (Once we know the current site, we don't need to call the Webs Web Service again in SPGetCurrentSite.)
4353 $().SPServices.SPCascadeDropdowns NA If the childColumn is required, then there shouldn't be any additional prompt, mirroring SharePoint's default behavior.
