Mozilla XForms 0.6 Release!

| | Comments (0)

Finaly, after a lot of delays, version 0.6 of the Mozilla XForms extension is available!

As usual, a lot of improvements and fixes. The executive summary is:

  • repeat and select optimization
  • changed value changed sequence so it behaves like deferred updates (and catch event loops)
  • more XUL controls
  • even better schema support
  • new permission manager

Release Notes - Download it here - Full announcement message

Go download it right away! :-)

I was a bit quick to say that all was well. Aparently Windows and Mac versions fail to download from http://addons.mozilla.org with an Invalid file hash error message :( bug 344949 is tracking that, and hopefully it will be fixed soon, so we can officially release version 0.6 officially.

XForms v0.6 is on the way

I’m pretty much out of the XForms loop these days, but version 0.6 is (finally) on the way. Possibly without a Mac version though :(

There are some “challenges” in using addons.mozilla.org, so right now Linux users will get this message: “Mozilla XForms is not available for Linux”. That’s not true, and version 0.5 can still be downloaded for Linux and Mac.

Soon 0.6 should be available for Linux too, and we’ll post an official announcement, etc.

Updated: Due to quick action from #amo (thanks!), the above was only true or a short while, and there’s both a Linux and Windows version available from there. Announcement to follow soon.

Better late than never:

Tomorrow, I’ll give a talk about Firefox and XForms at I Jornada de Tecnologias Web y Software Libre in La Coruña, Spain. And no, my Spanish has still not improved enough to do the talk in Spanish, so it will be in English :-)

Entrance is free, so feel free to show up. I’m not sure whether inscription is necessary though.
