As you may have noticed, the CSS Validator was updated last thursday (and 
this monday).

The release tag is 'release-aitd-2' (as there was a last security fix).

**** Changes ****

* CSS3 Colors (support for HSL, HSLA, including warning when clipping
                occurs)
* CSS3 Selectors
* @charset handling
* Some bug fixed (but not all)
* New translations: Ukrainian, Farsi, Bulgarian
* More translations are now complete

Thanks to all the vonlunteer translators!

**** Thank You ****

The CSS validator is a free, open source tools which relies on *us*,
the Web community, to survive and get better. Many thanks are due to
the many users, translators, bug reporters, patch contributors, and
bearers of good ideas that made this release possible - some (but not
all) of whom are listed in:
http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/thanks.html

Beyond the great effort provided by the community, a lot of the burden
of making this free tool falls on the W3C. Hosting and bandwidth are
fairly heavy for these popular services, and as you can see above,
coding does take up quite some time, too. If you use the validator
frequently, rely on in in your company, or want to show your support
for good, free open source tools, please consider making a donation,
or become a sponsor:

**** What's next? ****

More bug fixes, of course, and better support for CSS3 (which require lots 
of alignment work), help welcomed :)
Note that you can contribute code, but also tests, see
http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/autotest/testsuite/xml/ for the test 
definition format and 
http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/autotest/testsuite/properties/
for some test examples.

Cheers,
