Build better screens faster

The JGoodies Forms framework helps you lay out and
implement elegant Swing panels quickly and consistently.
It makes simple things easy and the hard stuff possible,
the good design easy and the bad difficult.

This maintenance release fixes bugs, adds features,
and brings minor improvements for the code, tutorial
and documentation. For details see the release notes.

I've updated the references to visual builders that support
the FormLayout or the whole Forms layout framework.
See Visual Builders in the HTML documentation.

I've extended the FAQ, have started a 'Pitfalls' section
in the Forms tutorial and have refreshed the Forms Demo.
The demo utilizes the Forms and demonstrates several
everyday layout tasks that you cannot implement with
the JRE's GridBagLayout, SpringLayout (out-of-the-box),
or TableLayout.

The Forms library has been financed by Johannes Riege,
the Java desktop team at Sun Microsystems and customers
of the JGoodies Swing Suite. It is only with their money
that I can provide, maintain, and improve this library
at no charge. If you save time and money using the Forms,
you may help me finance my Java desktop activities
by licensing the commercial JGoodies Swing Suite.

I hope Forms helps you build better screens faster.

Best regards,
Karsten Lentzsch
