updateEvents 3.1

Changes data for multiple events, rerendering them all.

.fullCalendar( ‘updateEvents’, events )

This method is similar to the updateEvent method though it accepts an array of events as its main argument, to update multiple events at the same time. This reduces the number of event rerenders that must happen, for performance reasons.
