A repository for Dataform releases is being constructed. In the meantime, downloads should be available here.
Currently not available via the plugins repo and/or git.
The available download is a base distro that includes standard field types and view types. Specialized fields (e.g. notification) and views (e.g. fancybox) will be released separately.
This Dataform version is not yet complete and is not recommended for production servers. It cannot upgrade previous versions (e.g. 1.0.4).
Some notable features:
Packaging from within a dataform into mbz either without user-data or with user-data or with user-data-anonymized. The anonymized options is good for transferring a dataform resource/activity across sites. It assigns the restored content to the restorer.
Most fields may be set as required in the entry form by adding * to the field pattern in the template (e.g. [[*Name] ]). Text fields also accept editing format rules such as email-address, max and min number of characters.
There are many field patterns for the view templates which are not exposed to the ui. They will be documented in the docs.
The Dataform is accompanied by a Dataform view block and a Dataform embedded resource. These plugins allow you to display a Dataform view (+ filter) on the course page. The resource embeds the view in a course section and the block can either embed the view or display its content. When the view is embedded the user can interact with it including submission of entries.
I will be updating the dataform release notes and docs in the next few days.
