I just posted an update to coreforms over at riaforge.  If you are interested in my forms solution, check it out.

I added a couple of new features.  The first is the ability to prepopulate a form that allows for multiple check box selects.  The data could be coming from another query of just supply a comma delimeted list of values.  So as an example, say you are building a weblog form and you want to pull all the data for the post with query1 and you want to pull in all your post categories with another data.  This will allow you to tie the two into the same form so you can update the main post and the categories on the same form.

I also added another customtag called "coredirections".  This allows you to add directions to a form at any point in the form if you are having the form build programatically (maketable = 'Y').

Hope you enjoy the changes.  If you have any suggestions let me know.

In case you missed the news over at, SpaceShipTwo made its first flight today for one hour of air time. I have been following the Scaled Composites story for a long time and can't wait to see the first commercial flights.

Hopefully the ticket price will come down soon so I can go for a ride.
