i'm still in the process of compiling all sub projects into the suite (that would be the replacement of the starters kit).
i believe that is what you're looking for.
i don't know that status of form support in the designer. maybe koen can comment on that.
to look at the new forms mechanism you can look at the jpdl/examples/websale. that includes a process with forms as they will be generated by the designer later on.
let me know if that helps
