Project Release Information
Several security issues were fixed. Updating to this version is strongly recommended. Numerous small issues were fixed and several translations were updated.
Besides the port to a PHP framework, this release sports a new condition engine called Expression Manager (EM). Currently, it runs in parallel with the old condition engine, and will soon replace it completely. EM makes it possible to use advanced piping, micro-tailoring, and complex equations to decide whether a question is visible/relevant or not. LimeSurvey now offers an archive format which makes it possible to archive and download a complete survey in its current state (including responses/timings/tokens). You can restore it later at any LimeSurvey installation.
Several languages were updated and about 50 issues were fixed, including a couple of security fixes, so it is strongly recommended to update to the latest version.
The Croatian, Dutch and French translations were updated. An issue was fixed where large and huge free text max characters settings were not respected on paste. An issue with QueXML exports on Windows Server (IIS) were fixed. An issue was fixed where a non-admin user cannot export to SPSS or R. Failure to export responses to PDF when using IE was fixed. Numerious other issues were fixed.
Issues with Token registration system that was not checking survey settings for token length was fixed. A minor class name quotation issue was fixed.The keyboard-less operation has been extended to all question types. An issue where you could not add conditions after a certain point in the survey has been fixed. An issue where questions were not hidden in Printable Survey & Print answers when the advance question setting hidden was set. An issue where quick translation did not work if the contents contain double quotes has been fixed. Some obsolete library code has been removed.
LimeSurvey (formerly PHPSurveyor) is a Web application that interacts with MySQL, MSSQL, or Postgres to develop surveys, publish surveys, and collect responses to surveys. Once a survey has been created, data can be inserted into the survey either by a "pretty" public screen which presents each question one at a time, or by a quick and nasty data entry screen. It includes the capacity to generate individualized "tokens", so that invitations can be issued to participants. It also has the capacity to set conditions on whether questions will display (branching), numerous question types, and a basic statistics function.
