There was quite a long gap between later versions of 0.6, and this 0.7 release, because contributors were working hard to obtain a high level of XForms 1.1 conformance, leaving little time to prepare releases.
That's not to say that this release only contains XForms 1.1 features; below you'll find information about how to add Google maps to your forms, the new rollup file (which should speed up form loading), how BuildBot is helping contributors to test their work, and much more.
In fact, you'll find that since the last release, contributors have added over 220 bug-fixes, enhancements and new features.
From a deployment standpoint, the most important development is the new roll-up file, which includes the entire library in one file. Of course we will improve on this by also compressing the file, but even in its current form, developers should see a big improvement in performance.
The file is currently re-generated by our BuildBot server, every time a change is committed to trunk. (Status of the rollup generation.) The actual rollup file is available from the home-page of the BuildBot server. Until we deploy it properly it should be copied to your server, and referenced as described in UsingTheLibrary.
XForms 1.1 supports a number of important improvements to submission, and UXF supports pretty much all of them, including the xf:header element.
For details of the new features, see Enhanced Submissions in the XForms 1.1 specification.
UXF now supports validation against the XForms predefined datatypes.
For details of the new features, see Datatypes and Model Item Properties in the XForms 1.1 specification.
UXF makes adding maps to your forms as easy as placing a CSS class value on an xf:output or xf:range.
Examples are in the map controls sample.
