I'm not quite sure what the difference between the two meanings are. As far as I can see, they're the same except the second one says only い-adjectives whereas the first one is any adjective.

You can click the 'add related' link to the right (near the top) and suggest your own; you don't have to, but it helps me a ton because it lets me focus on other things :)
