First dev release for D7. Beside of the functionality from 6.x-2.x, it checks now if the title module is installed (and so we don't need a setting in the content-type definitions).
Feel free to test issue queue is here #914048: D7 Port of Maxlength
A lot of new features. Please test.
-- CCK text field support
-- Moved configuration in line with the content edit page instead of on its own page
-- Customizable java script countdown message
-- Optional java script display
