What is it?
FreeForm is an open source (licensed under GNU GPL) non-profit software project. So it is free in all the meanings of this word. Source code of FreeForm can be freely downloaded from this site or from project' CVS repository.
What can it do?
FreeForm is a business form management system, which affords users to design and fill rich script-enabled forms. Forms are designed visually and are save to the XML-based format, which is called FDL (Form Definition Language). The binding of a form to the XML file is fully customizable, so FreeForm can work with any format of XML you want. FreeForm would also provide users with capability to publish forms on the web, to export them in number of formats and would have multiple renderers, so a single form would have different visualizations - one for printing, one for web-publishing, etc.
Main concepts
The project assumes basic concepts of MS InfoPath, the advantages of .NET platform and some innovative ideas. For this moment the main programming language is Microsoft C# 1.2 and the target operational system is Microsoft Windows, build on NT technology (versions 2000 and XP).
