The FormHandler DBIC model has been split into a separate package, so 
those using DBIC will need to install HTML::FormHandler::Model::DBIC.



Numerous features have been added since the last announcement on this 
list, including Repeatable and Compound fields that represent 
relationships in your DBIC classes. Rendering has been improved 
(although it's still very simple and straightforward). A number of the 
new users seem to like that FormHandler works fine with hand-built 
forms, but allows easy rendering automation where it's appropriate.

And because it's all Moose, all the time, there are lots of nifty things 
you can do, like define your own attributes for the base field class.

There's an irc channel #formhandler on irc.perl.org,  a mailing list at 
http://groups.google.com/group/formhandler, and code repositories at 
http://github.com/gshank/html-formhandler/tree/master and
