PHPSurveyor 1.08alpha2 Version Released - updated

Note: Due to a few show-stopping bugs we just released an 1.08 alpha2! Please try this new version: Download


The PHPSurveyor development team is happy to announce the release of the alpha version 1.08. This new version offers a wide range of new possibilities for this software and showing you the way the newly built development team just has started related to new features, design and usability. Be aware that with new features we were forced to raise the requirements bar. This release does have the following requirement:

  • MySQL 4.1 or higher
  • PHP 4.1 or higher with deactivated SAFE_MODE (which is a pretty standard setting)
  • Either gettext OR mbstring library installed. (for localizations)


Remember... this is an unstable alpha version. Do not use it for production purposes. However we will be happy about every feedback, suggestion and even bug report. If you need help do not to hesitate to ask in the forums or on IRC.

Now go to the Downloads and get your hands on it... or read the list of new features.
