The more you know, the more you might get scared.
You will have to write off part of your investments in 2.6.7. All themes and most workarounds will be worthless.
If you want to keep 2.6.7. alive with EOL of PHP5 and Yii1, it will depend on the timeframe if that is a mission impossible. We don't know your cashflow, so it might be worth the effort.

Read this manual.limesurvey.org/LimeSurvey_roadmap .
If you see the demand to open a User interest group for Business users (LS UIG Business), feel free to open a new thread e.g. in development.

No, issue :) and totally right :)

hvgard schrieb: As a customer

What do you mean by Customer ? I think LimeSurvey GMBH customer are only those
1. Hosted on limesurvey (with more than 25 response by month)
2. Have a ConfortUpdate (premieum or more) account

If i remind, it can be different in Germany about legal, but i think LimeSurvey GMBH take more care of this customers (like i take more core of my clients for developemnts).

Really intersetion to hear :)

I seriously doubt a responsive admin UI is better for LS. Just like word, pages, excel, wordpress and lots of other packages, we all use it mainly on a laptop with wide screen and lots of pixels. Who edits on a tablet or phone?

One of my client (using LimeSurvey since 1.70 and before) move to last version because their client like the new admin UI ;) (before they say «your tool is too oldy for us»).

I was wondering about versioning and changelog.
Our concern is about introduction of new features that we should audit for security, before deploying.
I put here some questions and doubts:

a) Are you using Semantic Versioning ?

Do you only add new features inside the mayor release? Can we go green updating minor versions? (3.x.y)



aa) Looks like LS-CE isn't LTS, support will end with 2019, while 4.0 doesn't look stable yet.

What happens to CE users after 2019? Must they migrate directly to 4.x asap?


b) Is there any changelog web page?

I can’t see any CHANGELOG.MD file inside the Github repository neither in this website navigation menu.. I would like to integrate changelog notations with our deployments.

Only since 3.X ;)

Yes, but error can happen (but then it fixed when reported)

I think (my opinion) it muts be updated when 4.X is really out …

github.com/LimeSurvey/LimeSurvey/blob/ma...cs/release_notes.txt :)

Well, there isn't a "stable" version out yet, so no surprise here.
