At launch we will be compliant with all major features in XForms 1.0
except for XML Schema validation. Validation is a large but
straightforward item to implement and is relatively independent from all
other modules, so it is last dish on our plate.

We currently have all of the model/binding infrastructure implemented, a
full XPath implementation, and are putting the finishing touches in the
actions, events, and repeat frameworks. With these frameworks in place,
we will be working on implementing all of the individual events and
actions before the launch.

We will also have the submission module ready, but at first may only
implement the most common submission methods (like "get" and "post").

All that's left is schema validation, and we feel we can work on that
after the initial release. Having bindings, controls, repeats, actions,
and events all working at launch ought to make our first release quite
featureful and capable.

Very respectfully,
Gary Sikora
FormFaces Project Manager

Gary, what level of compliance with the Xforms spec version 1.0 do you 
expect at launch?
