Orbeon Forms 4.0 M3

Today we released Orbeon Forms 4.0 M3 (Milestone 3). Like 4.0 M2, this is not a final release, but a preview release for those of you who want to see what's coming up in 4.0 and send us feedback.

In this release we have addressed a number of issues with Form Builder, in particular:
  • exceptions and a memory leak when adding controls to a section
  • error upon loading a form with custom XML and invalid XPath expressions
  • issue whereby you couldn't attach an image the first time you tried
  • enabled the help editor
  • missing hint editor under IE 8
  • a few usability fixes
The Form Runner proxy portlet had issues in M2, which are fixed as well! We have tested the proxy portlet and the full portlet in both Liferay 6.0.6 CE and Liferay 6.1.0 CE GA1.

Behind the scene, we have also rewritten part of the XForms engine event handling code. This allows us to address a number of issues related to events and XBL components. We also refactored a good part of XForms instance handling to help further maintenance and help us address some issues.

More details are available in the in-progress release notes for 4.0.

You can download the builds using these links:
Don't forget to grab a trial license for the PE version.

We plan to release the next milestone builds again at one-week intervals, on June 18 and June 25.

Please send feedback preferably to the ops-users list or via twitter (if short!), or feel free to comment on this blog entry if appropriate.
