The W3C XForms working group has posted the "post-last call" working draft of XForms 1.1. Changes since 1.0 include:

According to John Boyer

The largest task in preparing the post last call editors draft was to properly remove all the diff marks, which is how I found out that you now have 544 reasons to take a look at XForms 1.1.

Another interesting statistic is that the XForms 1.1 specification print preview is 203 pages, which is 30% more content than XForms 1.0 Second Edition, excluding consideration of changes to existing content.

Finally, note that XForms 1.0 Second Edition, which became a Recommendation in March 2006, contained 143 differences relative to the original XForms 1.0 from 2003. This includes 39 pages of errata and a content increase of 10 pages, or 7%. So if it's been a while for you, then perhaps there are nearly 700 reasons to take a look at XForms 1.1.

Comments are due by April 5.
