I've stuck with version 2.06 for a while now because I like the interface more and honestly have trouble finding what I want/need in the newer versions.

I started using 2.64 for internal survey work, and I am trying to decide if I am going to start switching. I definitely can program a survey much faster in 2.06, so I have a few questions:

1. Are there performance advantages in the latest Limesurvey version? For example, if I have a big annual project which I send out around 40000 email invites for. On the first couple of days after the invite is sent, I will get messages from people that the survey times out. This of course is the busiest time of the project, when the most people are simultaneously taking surveys. Would a newer version of lime help with this?

2. How compatible are surveys created in 2.06 in newer versions? That is, can I create my survey in the older version, export it and then import it into 2.64 and expect it to work?

3. Is it possible to have installations of both 2.06 and 2.64 attached to the same database so that I could work with the same surveys and data if I wanted?

I'm using this trick without problem since the first 2.5 version...
Currently I run a "dual installation" with 2.6 & 2.64 latest versions without any kind of issue...

Note that if you install a 2.64 after the 2.06, the database will be automatically upgraded to the last db version...

Here please find a copy of my 2 /application/versions.php files:

for 2.06/2.6:
$config['versionnumber'] = "2.6.4";
$config['dbversionnumber'] = 184;
$config['buildnumber'] = 'SondagesPro 1.5.2';
$config['updatable'] = false;

for 2.64:
$config['versionnumber'] = '2.64.7';
$config['dbversionnumber'] = 261;
$config['buildnumber'] = '';
$config['updatable'] = true;
$config['assetsversionnumber'] = '2647';


/application/config.php files are strictly the same for both installations


Note that templates (names) have to be available in both instances... (BTW ok for "default" theme)

And remind to activate survey via the last version only. Some column are better in last, and think some exist only in last version.

1. No (at least not for mail, we replace jqgrid by Yii GridView which improve performance for list rendering)
2. Not compatible. It's possible to convert the templates, but it's pretty hard, and we don't provide help to do it.
3. I would not recommend that.

You can just wait we release ls3, we should provide an option for expert users so they can show all the menu bars everywhere like in 2.06
