Dear David,

queXS uses Limesurvey 1.92+ (last 1.92 release), that has been modified and included in queXS.

You can't use Limesurvey 2.05 without modifying queXS. I will eventually upgrade the Limesurvey version in queXS. Is there something in particular you need from version 2.05?

Hi Adam,

Thank you for quick reply.

Latest version fixed a lot of bugs compare to version 1.92+. It also has new GUI and new features. In particular, VV import/export improve a lot.

Can you outline what need to be modified in order to use version 2.05? I know some programming. I will give a try if not too difficult.

Hi David,

You would need to replace the 1.92+ version included in queXS with 2.05+, and port the modifications made to 1.92+ to 2.05+.

My way of approaching it would be to look at the changes applied via the queXS BZR repository from around revision 280 and port them across. This may also be useful:

It will be a bit fiddly but not too difficult. I would be very happy to assist you as best I can.

It would be really great if Quexs could be update the LS version. There has been so much improvement in Limesurvey since 1.92 that I just couldn't imagine going back.

What was necessary to change in the LS version so that it works for Quexs? Ideally there would be no custom code, so updates of Limesurvey would be much easier. I saw that there are plans to implement a interface to communicate with any survey tool. That should solve the problem of outdated LS versions as well, right?

When queXS is updated to use LS 2.05/2.06 I plan not to make modifications to the Limesurvey code. I plan to rely on the Limesurvey remote control features instead.

Currently this is on the to-do list but I haven't had the time/funding to proceed with this. At the moment Limesurvey 1.92+ has all the features we require internally. I would be happy to assist with the change to 2.05/2.06 if you want to get a branch started or if funding is available.
