Mozilla Foundation announces beta release of XForms 1.0 Recommendation

February 2, 2005, (Mountain View, CA). The Mozilla Foundation today announced the beta release of the W3C’s XForms 1.0 Recommendation. XForms is the forms module standard developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), which enables developers to deliver the type of next-generation, rich, portable web-based applications desired by corporate IT.

Developed in collaboration with IBM, Novell, and the open source community, XForms technology is now available as an extension to the Mozilla 1.8 and Firefox 1.1 web browsers which are currently under development. This release is intended for users in non-production environments who are interested in exploring XForms 1.0 technology ahead of the extension’s general availability release later this year. The extension is available for Linux, Windows, and Macintosh platforms. Beta user feedback on this release is highly encouraged. Please consult the beta release notes for information on known limitations and how to provide beta feedback.
