This page describes current and expected XForms 1.1 implementations. This includes XForms 1.1 features that are known to be implemented in current implementations.

The following implementations are known to contain XForms 1.1 features at this time:

Chiba project

DataMovil 3.0

formsPlayer XForms Processor

IBM Lotus Forms

Mozilla XForms project

Orbeon Forms

PicoForms

The following more detailed statements of support are available:

  • The Chiba project implements numerous XForms 1.1 features at this time, including but not limited to the following:
