As some of the more avid/observant/down right obsessed of you might have noticed I've added a Fabrik 2 beta 2 release to the downloads section.

This release addresses a lot of the bugs that have been reported since the first beta was released. I would really like to thank all the community that spent time testing and reporting these issues back to us, your feedback has been invaluable!

Form paginating can be a powerful way to split long forms into smaller sections, making what might have been a daunting and off-putting process more user friendly. This feature has been lacking in Fabrik, well there were hacks to get it working, but they tended to be difficult to implement and prone to error. As of today, in Fabrik 2.0's SVN, there is a simple way to create form's that span over multiple pages.

After having moved the forums over to VBulletin a couple of weeks ago, its now the turn of the main site to get a face lift. The Homepage has been redesigned in a more effective structure. After the top menu you have a couple of calls to action, downloading the latest stable version of Fabrik and subscribing. The next five columns aim to give new visitors a better understanding of what Fabrik can do, along with links through to a entirely new features section.

Smashing magazine has just published a rather large list of creative form examples. Theres some nice ideas in some of the forms, I especially like the idea of using css to show icons inside fields to give a visual prompt to the type of data required.

AS of now Fabrik 2.0.x SVN's connection url has been changed to http://fabrik.unfuddle.com/svn/fabrik_fabrik2/trunk/

This was done to allow us to clearly distingush changes in the 1.0.x and 2.0.x code bases

No unfortunately Hugh and I have not found an all knowing fabrik robot to answer you questions even faster!

Instead - I've installed the smf gravatar plugin .
