 ## clientId required for Ajax field decoration
 
 Applications that perform server-side validation of form control data (such as TextField)

and error messages

+an Ajax Zone update* should bind the Zone's simpleIds parameter to true. This disables the
injection of a per-request

 Non-Ajax requests are not affected.  Client-side validation is not affected. Only the rare
case where validation
 only occurs on the server is affected; Tapestry has lost the ability to coordinate the Tapestry-generated

+## Page loading mask
+
+Tapestry now adds a "page loading mask" to the page; this mask will dim the browser window
and add a spinning
+"wait cursor" until all JavaScript on the page has been loaded and initialized. The mask
prevents all interaction
+with the page.
+
+CSS animations are used to fade in the mask after a short period of time; this makes the
mask less obtrusive.

 ## Wait-for-page logic removed

the page had loaded;

use of this function, and the function
