The Scriptura XBOS 4.0, which will be released very soon now, will have
support for interactive forms, using XForms as the underlying forms
technology and XSL-FO for the layout. It will support many XForms
features, such as validation, dynamic table rows, combined with all of the
features of XSL-FO, such as table headers, conditional page masters etc.
Of course, our graphical designer will have support for these form
controls, in addition to the XSL-FO features.
You will have the ability to print either a rendered (either on paper or
on screen) version of the empty form, a rendered version of the filled in
form, and an interactive form that can be filled in.
In the initial release of this forms functionality, you will need either
an applet or a forms reader (also a part of Scriptura XBOS) to fill in the
forms. HTML or PDF forms could be coming later.
No other public information about this is available right now, but you can
expect an announcement very soon now.
