Chronoforms V4 change

We are proud to announce the release of Chronoforms V4.0, the new version is a complete remake of the old one, almost all code has been rewritten, the result is a stronger and more modular and easy to use forms manager for all the Joomla users, we wish that you will like it, we would like to hear your comments on the forums.

The most important feature in the new version is the new easy to use Wizard, the new wizard has an "Events manager", which can let you control everything in your form, you can design your form's view (fields..etc) and your forms' actions as well, you can now tell your form to do what you want it to do whenever you want it done, conditional actions based on events, some events are there by default like the "form load" & "form submit" events, other events are triggered by some actions, like the "captcha success" event, "captcha fail" or even some "Transaction passed" event, all this is completely controllable through the wizard, using drag and drop.

We will update this page with a feature list later, Thanks for reading!! :)
