# To subscribers of the xforms list from email@example.com (Steve Lamont) :
> I have to translate a big program from the 0.61 to 0.81 XForms
You should probably get 0.89 -- 0.81 is quite old and has some
signficant bugs, if I recall correctly.

Hm. I don't know if there's a cumulative change list going back that
far. I can say that the API has remained quite consistent over the
time that TC has been managing the project. I just looked at the
header file for the old SGI GL version and it looks quite similar.
Mostly, features have been added.
I don't recall -- is 0.61 an X based or GL based version? If it's X
based, then the changes are relatively small and obvious.

If you have 0.61 installed somewhere, the best thing to do is to
compare the headers.
> 3) to get an automatic translator ?
I don't think there is such a thing but you may not need one. Have
you tried building? It may work better than you expect.
