I am very happy to announce the final release of ProForm 1.0.

This represents a major milestone for ProForm, and I think you’ll really like the improvements I’ve made. This new release features an improved and much cleaner UI, multistep form support, a single template tag to render forms automatically, and even better support for 100% custom form markup. This is the biggest release for the module to date - and a lot of love and effort has gone into making it the best it can be.

I hope you like it.

As always, please let me know if you have any suggestions or questions. Best contact method is through the support forums:
