Prototype 1.6.0.2

Hi,

I was wondering if there was a reason why the version of prototype
that ships with Rails is still 1.6.0.1?

I was running into a problem with element.down in Prototype 1.6.0.1.

1.6.0.2 fixed the issue for me and contains a number of other bug
fixes, optimizations, and security improvements.

Since it is a minor release that has been out since January I thought
it made sense to apply the update in rails and submitted a ticket and
patch in lighthouse (http://rails.lighthouseapp.com/projects/8994/
tickets/599-update-prototype-to-1-6-0-2)

I'm sorry if this is something that has been addressed elsewhere and
I've just missed. I spent some time searching for a reason, then I
asked in #rails-contrib before submitting the patch and didn't get any
responses, and the ticket has been up for a week without any comments,
so I thought I would ask here.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Patrick Joyce

No good reason. Applied the patch. Thanks.

And talking about Prototype....

I updated the patch after you couldn't merge it because it was outdated.

Cheers!
