We just put up a new release candidate of version 1.80 (see changelog) which includes about 80 fixes and even a couple new features.

The most notable new feature is a webservice to 'remote-control' LimeSurvey from other applications. It is is a PHP:SOAP based Web services application, allowing users to do several things with Limesurvey from an other application: Start predefined surveys with varying titles, welcome texts, admins and end URLs. Insert token, add predefined groups to your coresurvey etc. More features to come! Thank you to our newest team member 'rakete' (Tim Wahrendorff) for this!

If you find bugs or problems please report to the bugtracker. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., our quality manager, will take a look at at first and filter and categorize for the developers - like he did in the past for almost 2 years now - we would be drowning without him! 

It was also put even more work into redesigning questions layout for accessibility (making it tableless too). Evan Wills spent a great deal of time on this part of the LimeSurvey 1.80 version. If you have comments about LimeSurvey accessibility (on the client side) please let This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. know.

Besides that we have now bobc55 (Bob Cummingham) working on the documentation and updating it accordingly so we can start synchronizing the documentation translations soon. Thank you!

Also I want to thank This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for his tremendous work in the past month on fixes, updates, releases and many other things and features he worked on together with Jason Cleeland - as the rest of the developers also did - thank you to you all!

Last but not least a big thank you to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and all the others team members who did help people in the forums and IRC chat.

If you  want to be part  of this great project - let us know because we are always looking for help!

If you like LimeSurvey and it helps you get your work done please consider a serious donation - as that is needed to keep this project afloat! Remember that a comparable commercial software would cost you way more money - just a fraction of this -spent on us- helps.
