Hello all,

We'd like to invite developers working with formsPlayer--whether in a
web application or embedded in a desktop application--to start using
and testing the latest build of 1.5.4:

  <http://www.formsplayer.com/node/262/release#version-1.5.4.1018>

Version 1.5 is not quite complete, but is already much faster than
1.4, thanks to significant improvements in repeat handling, major
changes to switch and case, faster loading of data into select and
select1 controls when a form starts, and a move from MSXML 4 to MSXML
6 (which also improves memory usage).

We've also continued to implement more of XForms 1.1, so that authors
have greater control over data submission, can use output to render
images, and much more. A full test-suite is being prepared to both
test and demonstrate the full range of available features, so you'll
soon get a good idea of exactly what's available. And to make it
easier to build tests for your own XForms applications we've also made
some important improvements to our Selenium support.

Finally, there are a number of bug fixes, the most important being
resolutions to a couple of crashes. They've been difficult to
reproduce because they occurred in code that handles the asynchronous
processing, but we think we have them nailed now. If you come across
others that we haven't seen, we would really appreciate feedback.

Regards,

Mark
