The state of Orbeon Forms, Part 8

This is a summary of the Orbeon Forms developments for December 2009 - February 2010:
  1. Release

    • Numbering. Since there are about 300 changes since 3.7.1, the upcoming Orbeon Forms release will be numbered 3.8 instead of 3.7.2.
    • Schedule. We are trying our best to release 3.8 really soon! The release notes have been updated already but we have some outstanding issues to address before we release.
  2. Form Builder / Form Runner

    • Improved look and feel. There is now a clear difference between what belongs to the builder vs. the edited form.
    • Summary page. The summary page has a nicer search area and list of forms using the datatable component.
  3. Orbeon Forms enhancements

  4. Documentation, how-tos, and examples

  5. Other

Feedback is as always welcome! Enjoy!


  1. this is great - can't wait for the new release. still struggling with deploying a form created in form builder to a liferay portlet. any updates on liferay integration with this release?

  2. Ross, we haven't done any particular work on Liferay integration for this release.
