formsPlayer.com is now ready for you!
- Hello everyone,
We've been working hard in the last few months on a number of
different things. Some are imminent--such as full support for XForms
1.1 in formsPlayer--and some are almost imminent (and we can't
talk about them yet). But one that is here now, is the fresh, new,
restructured and redesigned formsPlayer.com site.
The main change in the site is that it is now much easier for us to
update, which means that we can add tutorials, samples, articles and
blogs whenever the mood takes us--and that's often. We've also moved
our bug-tracking onto the site, and of course there are plenty of
forums in which people can ask (and answer) questions, as well as
So although this Yahoo! Group has been a great resource over the last
four years, it will no longer be used.
We're very grateful for all the useful input and bug-catching that
group members have provided over the years, and it is no exaggeration
to say that it would have been impossible for such a small company as
ours to have created software like formsPlayer, without this kind of
help (and encouragement). We really do hope that many of the 800
people on this list will come over to the new site (many have already
made the switch in the last few months), and make use of the new
resources. We are building a substantial collection of articles,
discussions and code for those looking to build a new generation of
internet applications, and we'd love to see you there.
One of the main advantages of the new site is that everything is
completely integrated; a comment in the bug-tracking system can link
to a tutorial, a blog entry can link to sample code, an answer in a
forum can link to a feature request. Being able to cross-reference
everything means that the information and knowledge in
formsPlayer.com, about building web applications with XForms, will get
deeper and deeper.
Once again, thanks for your help over the last 4 years or so, and we
look forward to seeing you all on the new site.
