The state of Orbeon Forms, Part 9

Here is a summary of the Orbeon Forms developments for October 2010:
  1. Releases
    • Orbeon Forms 3.8. Orbeon Forms 3.8 was released in May in both CE and PE versions.
    • Next release. There have been a huge number of commits and bug-fixes since version 3.8 and the code base is getting ready for an Orbeon Forms 3.9 release sooner rather than later.
  2. Security
    • YUI vulnerability. YUI, a library we use, announced a security vulnerability. Orbeon Forms nightly builds are already patched. If you have a deployed app using Orbeon Forms, we recommend you install the YUI Flash security patch. Here is how to do it.
  3. Performance and reliability
  4. Orbeon Forms enhancements
  5. Upgrades
  6. Documentation, how-tos, and examples
  7. XForms Working group at W3C
Enjoy,
