Thanks for the interest

The problem with working in trunk (as I saw it) was the sheer amount  
of time in which cforms would have been unreleasable. Moving from 0.4  
to 1.1.1 just broke absolutely everything.

Sorry, it just seemed easier :(

With your help, I'd be happy to do this.

Lets do it !!
I am getting really close to having all widgets re-written to Dojo  
1.1.1 APIs, still not quite there yet.

But as it looks like I have some work coming up that will delay me  
further, this could be a good time to get it out.

Apart from my dwindling list or re-writes, there will obviously be a  
big list of niggles and bugs to fix, specially as none of this is  
tested on MSIE.

Cleaning up samples
Devising a good scheme for packaging code and i18n
Waiting for a slew of bug fixes that will come in Dojo 1.2
Implementing client-side validation based on cforms validators, not  
just datatypes (as I have now)

etc. etc.

There is still a lot to do, but once these last few widgets are  
written and all legacy samples work again, people will be able to run  
and use it, criticise, tweak, fix, meaning the slope should be  
downhill :)

That would be great!!
