The PHPSurveyor development team is happy to announce the release of the alpha version 1.45. This new version really makes a difference to the current 1.0 stable. The ability to execute a survey in different languages at the same time, the ability to run on different database systems or the new user system for the admin section are only the base features. LDAP import for tokens and numerous small changes are the things which make this alpha version hot and spicy.
Remember... this is an unstable alpha version. Do not use it for production purposes. However we will be happy about every feedback, suggestion and bug report. As soon you give us feedback as sooner we can get you a new and more stable version. If you need help do not to hesitate to ask in the forums or on IRC. Demo Here.
Now go to the Downloads and get your hands on it... or read the list of new features.
