Hi, Yes indeed, there is a large overlap between the two and it would be nice to unite them in the future.
Most of the recent work has gone into the relation reference widget, but unfortunately there are still some things that will need to be implemented on the relation reference widget before the value relation widget can be declared obsolete (and I did not yet make a comprehensive list). Nyall, what would be required to bring this functionality also (or only) into the relation reference widget? I guess the work that has gone into the preparation for this crowdfunding will make it a lot easier also to implement this in the relation reference widget?
