Just my non-binding comments regarding this localization stuff...
Been using Tapestry since version 3, and recently I have spent time trying 
to migrate my first T4 app to T5, and although most of the new features have 
been delightful, I have to say that this localization support has been a 
major blocker for migration.
Not just DateField which is hardly usable in this non-localizable form, but 
also this UTF-8 issue affecting all form values being improperly encoded, 
and I mean not just forms with file upload (everything worked fine in T4 - I 
guess T4 internaly called HttpServletRequest.setEncodingCharset("UTF-8") 
before doing anything with request instance). UTF8FDilter has been on Wiki 
for a while, but I strongly feel this should be present in the very 

Maybe other people feel otherwise, but I am kind of guy that first wants to 
see all basic stuff doable as in previous versions of Tapestry, and then go 
with some nice additions (like hibernate support, Ajax etc). I know that 
this term "basic stuff" varies probably between people, so I'm not saying 
that is easy to choose what will you spend time on considering how everybody 
wants different stuff.

All in all, everything else seems really nice.

BTW, where are Erik Hatcher, MindBridge thesedays? ;)
