    Hi Allan,

    When upgrading to 1.8.0 I've had some troubles with the following plugin :
    Plugins > Type detection > UK date type detection

    It said that sData.match is not a function.
    Resolved it by replacing match() by test() function.
    I don't know if other plugins are using the .match() syntax. :)
