Hi everybody,

   first of all a very happy new year to all of you! And then
the new 1.2.0 version of XForms has just been released. you
can get it immediately from


(The "official" URL


may still need some time before it works correctly because you
get redirected to mirror servers which only are updated with a
certain delay only.)

I would like to thank all of you who helped with bug reports,
patches, discussions (specifically including those who dis-
agreed with me and often were right in the end) and moral
support! It's a pleasure to finally be able to release what
we probably all thought nearly 12 years ago would be just
around the next corner;-)

As you may notice also a number of other files have been up-
dated (README's, documentation etc.) and the files for all
the pre-releases I've been bothering you in the past have,
for the time being, been moved to a new directory named
`development'. That's where I also plan to put pre-releases
in the future.

Starting with this release I will start avoiding 'preXYZ'
suffices and instead switch to a new numbering system as
has been discussed here some time ago: "stable" releases
will have an even release number while odd numbers are
going to be used for development versions (i.e., 1.2.X is
a stable release, 1.3.Y a development release in preparation
for a future stable 1.4.0 release).

On the Savannah web page I have removed the "Support Tracker"
- there was hardly ever more than one post per year and for
that reason I tended not to pay a lot of attention to it. I
guess the mailing list will do quite fine for communication
for the foreseeable future.

Next thing I've go to do is to update the xforms-toolkit.org
web site, which may take another day or two. One of the pro-
posals I received was for the inclusion of a list of links to
open source programs using XForms to make it easier to find
"real-world" examples of how the XForms library can be used
(from experience I can say that groking how e.g. to deal with
"raw" canvases can be a bit daunting, so some more examples
than just the demo programs might be useful). If you have a
program that you are prepared to share with others please
let me know and send me an URL I can link to (and a short
explanation what the program does may also come handy).

                        Best regards, Jens
