Dear members of  the XForms mailing list,

just a quick note that Mozquito today released a preview
release of the upcoming Mozquito XForms Matrix, a transcoder
that enables existing browsers to process XForms!

The Mozquito XForms Matrix implements XForms by
transcoding XForms documents on-the-fly into cross-browser
JavaScript and DHTML for the browsers Netscape and IE
version 4 and up (no Netscape 6 just yet). Today we have 
released a client-side version of the Mozquito XForms Matrix that 
comes together with our light-weight XHTML Editor MozPad, 
allowing you to author XForms and preview the results in the 
browsers mentioned above.

Later, we will release the XForms Matrix Server, which, as a web
server plug-in, then does the transformation into backwards-compatible
JavaScript & DHTML code on-the-fly upon request by a browser 
lacking native XForms support. Further down the road, we will also 
release plug-ins for popular web development environments such as 
Allaire HomeSite.

This early implementation does not support the XForms Model yet,
but otherwise gives a good impression of how XForms looks and feels
when used together with XHTML.

Please feel free to go to http://www.mozquito.com to download
and install the preview release of the Mozquito XForms Matrix which
expires after 30 days.

To see how sample XForms documents transcoded by Mozquito
work in Netscape and IE, directly jump to:

Thanks for listening, please enjoy, comments and feedback are most
welcome, as always!

All the best,

Sebastian
(with no hat on)
