LimeSurvey 2.50 released!
In the past users have asked us repeatedly to revamp the administration interface and surveys.
With LimeSurvey 2.50 we made this come true. On top of that we also revamped the survey templates to be completely responsive for any kind of display - be it a smartphone, tablet or a desktop PC.
We had 2.50 in Release Candidate status for more than 4 months and in general we received very few bug reports from the community.
At some point it became clear that waiting even longer would not yield any more considerable amount of reports, - so we decided to release
LimeSurvey to new users exclusively a couple weeks ago. (For a very short time it was also available to 2.06 users on ComfortUpdate but that was not intended - we apologize for this!).
Are you living within the EU? Do you want to live and work in a big and beautiful German city? We are an established and growing open source software development company that has been developing the open source software LimeSurvey since 2003. LimeSurvey is currently the world's most widely used open-source software for surveys with an estimated 70,000 active installations. To speed up the continued development of LimeSurvey in the future, we are looking for dedicated individuals to join our small team of developers who are true believers in free open source software, ideally with past experience on open source projects.
The LimeSurvey team is proud to present you the LimeSurvey 2.5 Release Candidate!

LimeSurvey 2.5 is based on the good old LimeSurvey 2 code, but using the famous front-end framework Bootstrap
to render its admin interface. So now, you'll enjoy a modern and responsive admin interface to build your survey. If you're a loyal LimeSurvey user, you will not get lost, and you'll still find all the functionalities you care and love.
The development of the new admin interface pursued four goals:
- Offer a modern graphical experience
- Respect the habits of loyal LimeSurvey users and the global ergonomy of LimeSurvey 2
- Easy to use for new users, thanks to an alert info system providing tips and tricks.
- Keep as much as possible of the LimeSurvey 2 core code to get LimeSurvey 2.5 working as soon as possible
Soon, we'll also develop a bootstrap responsive template for surveys.
So, LimeSurvey 2.5 is fully compatible with LimeSurvey 2, and you'll can update to it simply using the brand new ComfortUpdate we just released a few weeks ago...
