The first "post last call" editor's draft of XForms 1.1 is now available 
from the Forms working group web page (http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/).

The XForms 1.1 last call working draft 
(http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/WD-xforms11-20070222/) contained diff marks 
that illustrated differences between the working draft and the XForms 1.0 
Second Edition Recommendation 
(http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/REC-xforms-20060314/) .

The largest task in preparing the post last call editors draft was to 
properly remove all the diff marks, which is how I found out that you now 
have 544 reasons to take a look at XForms 1.1.

Another interesting statistic is that the XForms 1.1 specification print 
preview is 203 pages, which is 30% more content than XForms 1.0 Second 
Edition, excluding consideration of changes to existing content.

Finally, note that XForms 1.0 Second Edition, which became a 
Recommendation in March 2006, contained 143 differences relative to the 
original XForms 1.0 from 2003.  This includes 39 pages of errata and a 
content increase of 10 pages, or 7%.  So if it's been a while for you, 
then perhaps there are nearly 700 reasons to take a look at XForms 1.1.
