Sounds great. Will need to run a new test installation and do some testing, if I find the time.

Looks great and looking forward to the first stable version.

Question: Are there any particular steps users of v3 should take to make it easy to switch over existing surveys to V4?

Will a seamless switch over with V4 importing existing databases be likely?

So far switching from one major version to the next was always relatively easy and if you have comfort update it is even easier. However, also test the new version in a test installation before you upgrade your production server, checking if everything that you really need works fine, anything custom made (themes, workarounds, etc.) are still working, etc.

Then backup your database and everything, and only then proceed to upgrade your production environment.

But this should be basic standard anyway, for any production environment.

Good to hear, thanks Holch.

No guarantee for LS 4 though. ;-)

Haven't tested the upgrade yet.

How long LS3 updates will be rolled out, until deprecation?
Maybe when LS4 will turn in LS 4.1.x ?

I’ve read the blog post and I ended up we absolutely need another accessibility and security audit before being updated in the mayor release.

If we’re going to find something unfair to security or a11y I’ll post in the Bugtracker.
Thanks team for your effort!
