The newly founded betterFORM project is happy to announce that the  
release of betterFORM 3.0 code-named 'lightSteelBlue' can now be  
downloaded from http://www.betterform.de/download.html

betterFORM combines a full XForms 1.1 implementation with the Dojo  
toolkit for enterprise-level solutions. It allows easy creation of  
highly dynamic AJAX-enabled user interfaces with attractive and  
accessible controls and predefined layout containers. Even complete  
web-applications can be build in a declarative way.

An online demo is available at:

Only a few key features:
- easy installation
- supports dynamic embedding of subforms (by an extension of the  
XForms load action)
- fully declarative programming model
- fully accessible UI controls
- XFormsFeatureExplorer for live documentation
- runs as standalone server (optionally with eXist - http://exist.sourceforge.net 
- open source under BSD license
- professional support available

Five different browsers have been fully tested against the XForms 1.1  
Test Suite Edition 1 with a success rate of 95 to 98% namely:
-Firefox 3.0 (OSX)
-Firefox 3.6 (OSX)
-Chrome 4 (XP)
-Chrome 5 (OSX)
-IE7 (XP)

The full test reports are available online at:
