Episerver Forms is supported by MVC-based websites only.

Some changes are binary breaking but do not necessarily require code changes but rather just a recompilation of the project.

  • AFORM-455 Forms.DLL is now signed.

  • AFORM-540 Actor now can run sync/async with the submission process. With sync-Actor, developer can modify the response return to Visitor. See also [Implementing a customized Actor](πŸ”—ο»Ώ).

  • AFORM-551 Autofill API

    • Introduce `IAutofillProvider` and `AutofillService`.

    • Change `IFormElement.GetDefaultValue().`

  • AFORM-472] The intention of `RichTextWithPlaceholder` is _Recall field value in previous-step_. With this new feature, `RichTextWithPlaceholder` element works like a normal XHTML block (even in the case where no placeholder exists).

  • AFORM-418 **Progressive Profiling** for Forms BETA.

  • AFORM-480 Built-in **Submit** button now has Progressive Profiling feature.

  • AFORM-526 Option to not load the default style sheet (_EPiServerForms.css_).

# API changes

## Changed

  • `IFormElement` interface has a new method: `IFormElement.GetDefaultValue()`.

  • AFORM-533 `IPostSubmissionActor` interface has new properties to provide information about Field mapping to external system.

    • Actor can be sync/async

    • Only sync-actor can have/modify the `ResponseBase` object

    • If a third party developer uses `PostSubmissionActorBase`, their class is not affected.

  • AFORM-534 Feed API should be internal use only.

  • AFORM-541 Renamed `IElementTittle` to `IElementTitle`, (fixing a typographical error in naming).

  • AFORM-488 Refactored static functions of validation, moved to `ValidationService`.

## Marked as obsolete

  • Method of `FormsExtensions` should be treated as Internal use only. They are helper functions, and are not critical to provide services to third-party developer.
