Hi Jens,

   this is just a reminder that I'm still planing to release
the new version 1.2 of the XForms library next weekend since
there haven't been any posts here or messages via private email
in the last days that would indicate that there are any problems
left to be fixed. Of course, this could also be attributed to
not having given you enough time for testing. So should you
intend to run tests but don't have time at the moment please let
me know! I will definitely delay the new release if there's a
chance that more serious testing will be done (at least if the
time frame is reasonable, i.e. not "maybe at the end of next

For those that want to do some more tests here again the URL
for downloading the latest pre-release:


I'd also be grateful for being told if you did run tests but
didn't notice anything wrong - this would give me a feeling of
how much testing has actually been done and what's the ratio of
positive and negative results.
I have tested the new release against a our suite of applications and have not seen any visual errors or encountered any process errors. Looks pretty good to me.

Due to time constraints I was only able to re-saved about 30 major forms to test the new code generated by fdesign. It appears I have just over 200 forms including Pop-Ups. In order to better test the final result I was wondering if we could add a new argument to fdesign. A "-migrate" maybe.

The intent here would be to convert the 13000 or later series of .fd files to the latest release and then I could execute the -migrate and then -convert so the new code reflects fdesign's latest conversion process. This would simulate me saving each file and recompiling. In my case I don't care that the old .fd file are over written. Indeed I would prefer that so at the end of my testing I have exactly what I would get if I were working on a project with the latest fdesign.

I can try to add this myself. I believe I found all the routines that perform the conversion and save forms.

What say you,


                        Best regards, Jens
