Hi Jeroen,

This is very exciting news. Congratulations on your release.
Your conformance level to the specification is very good, and on behalf of 
the W3C Forms working group, I would like to ask if you could provide an 
implementation report of your XForms 1.1 engine.
Having the documented knowledge of which tests you pass will greatly help 
the working group to advance XForms 1.1 to full recommendation.

An example of the report is here: 
The test suite is here: 

Please let us know if this will be possible.  It would be a great service 
to the W3C if it were possible as we would use your implementation report 
as part of the requirements to advance XForms 1.1 to proposed 
recommendation, which is the version that the fulll W3C then decides upon 
for full recommendation.  Participating in this way has obvious 
implications for raising awareness of the availability of your processor.

Thank you,

XForms 1.1 implementation

EMC recently implemented an XForms 1.1 engine.
-          GWT implementation deployable as a pure javascript engine 
without any server requirements
-          Over 90% compliant to the XForms 1.1 spec. limitations:
o   No XML Schema types support
o   Only basic serialization as application/xml is currently supported
-          Several enhancements beyond XForms 1.1, especially support for 
layout documents
Enhancements are implemented as pure enhancements on top of the core 
XForms 1.1 implementation
