release of betterFORM 3.0 code-named 'lightSteelBlue' can now be

betterFORM combines a full XForms 1.1 implementation with the Dojo  
toolkit for enterprise-level solutions. It allows easy creation of  
highly dynamic AJAX-enabled user interfaces with attractive and  
accessible controls and predefined layout containers. Even complete  
web-applications can be build in a declarative way.

An online demo is available at:

Only a few key features:
- easy installation
- supports dynamic embedding of subforms (by an extension of the  
XForms load action)
- fully declarative programming model
- fully accessible UI controls
- XFormsFeatureExplorer for live documentation
- runs as standalone server (optionally with eXist - 
- open source under BSD license
- professional support available

-Firefox 3.0 (OSX)
-Firefox 3.6 (OSX)
