All,

I had a quick look and I identified a few features they have in addition to
standard XForms:

- improvements to repeat
  - way to specify a template directly in instance data
  - way to specify initial number of iterations
  - way to specify whether the user can add/remove iterations
- a way to localize messages
  - embedding of resources under `model`
  - use of `jr:itext()` function to access resources
- extensions to `bind` to specify an error message on the bind
- extra XPath functions
  - `selected`/`count-selected`
  - some functions I don't quite understand ;)

-Erik
