Here is an even fresher version of the Schema for XForms. All the caveats
from the original message still apply. In particular, the XForms Working
Group has provided the general approach but not reviewed the actual detailed
changes to the Schema. A list of these changes is in a comment at the top of
the document.

The main highlight is probably the use of the prefix "xforms" instead of
"xform". Does this improve the readability of the Schema or of XForms
markup?

You will also find some more XLink changes, a new non-conflicting namespace,
and a list of a few open issues.

Thanks for all your feedback. Please continue to play with this Schema and
build forms with it. Let us know how this works out, or what areas could use
further improvement.

Thanks!

XForms Watchers,

Some have requested information on the changes planned for XForms as we
approach Last Call. I'm happy to provide an updated Schema for XForms that
shows some of the latest changes. A comment at the top of the file gives
details on what's changed.

The XForms Working Group has agreed to share this information on the
www-forms list in order to get early feedback, and encourage people to start
writing and validating forms. Please let us know what you think, and
especially if you see any mistakes or potential problems.

Disclaimer: While the XForms Working Group has agreed to the overall
changes, the specific implementation here hasn't been reviewed or approved.
This Schema is guaranteed to change. Also note that the old namespace
http://www.w3.org/2001/08/xforms remains, though this will definitely change
in our next publication. All namespace and XLink role URIs should be
considered advisory only.

Thanks!

Micah Dubinko
Co-Editor, XForms 1.0
