functionality is:

    - reads Stata dta and Rec files
2. save data as an EpiData project XML file (*.epx)
    - this will contain all definitions and in next release also the data

Please discuss function in general on this list and report reproducible 
errors to the flyspray database

In the announced release plan this is point b and part of point c:

a. Test placement of fields in data entry forms. Move fields, add
sections. Only one form is allowed. Edit variable labels (questions).
b. Include previous data structures on a form.

c. Write data files and export data structures to rec file and dta files
d. Start development of a dedicated entry client.
e. Add definition and editing of category labels (value labels).
