I'm pleased to announce that formsPlayer for IE6 is now a 1.0 release.

formsPlayer was one of the first two XForms processors to implement the
full XForms specification, so allowing XForms 1.0 to become a full
standard. Now it is the first publicly available XForms processor to
become a 1.0 release.

formsPlayer for IE6 allows the full range of XForms features to be added
to XHTML pages, for rendering in Internet Explorer 6. Since XForms
provides the same facilities for communicating with servers as current
browser technologies, then the availability of an XForms plug-in for IE6
opens up a clear migration path for those looking to take advantage of
this exciting new standard.

formsPlayer 1.0 remains a free download, and can be used in any type of
project. In addition, commercial licenses are available which allow
formsPlayer to be re-distributed and re-branded.

More information, and the free download are available from:


formsPlayer has proved the viability of the XForms standard, and the
thousands of individuals who have downloaded formsPlayer - and given us
crucial feedback - have proved that there is real interest in "the next
generation of web forms". We are now seeing real applications being
rolled out, whilst developer tools are about to be announced,
conferences are being organised, and articles and blogs are being

We feel this is an exciting time for XForms, and are proud of the role
that formsPlayer has played in helping to popularise the new standard.
