0.1 to 0.2

We undertook some major API changes. To help you migrate from 0.1 to 0.2 we have included a build task which you can run which will go through your installed forms and rebuilt them with the new 0.2 datamodel.

To run this build task you visit the url /dev/tasks/UserFormsMigrationTask


I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to the module, bug fixers, testers and everyone that submits new features.

A big thanks goes out to Jan Düsedau for drawing the custom icon set for the form fields.
