The W3C XForms working group has posted the second public working draft of XForms 1.1. Changes since 1.0 include:

The Helsinki University of Technology has released X-Smiles 0.96, a proof-of-concept XForms engine written in Java. It isn't very polished, but it does attempt to run on most platforms. This release adds zooming and fixes bugs, though a lot of work remains to be done.

Recordare has released Dolet 3.0 for Sibelius, a $129.95 payware plug-in for reading and writing MusicXML files. This release adds support for MusicXML 1.1. Upgrades are $79.95. Sibelius 4.0 or later is required.
