Dear All.

As promised in our previous mail, we have released a new test version of 
EpiData Analysis on our website today.

This test release have been modified to support the new XML structure 
used by the most recent versions of EpiData Manager and EpiData EntryClient.

Along with this change, EpiData Analysis is now also capable of reading 
the zipped versions of the project files. That is, it is now possible to 
read the .epz files.

With kind regards,
Torsten Bonde Christiansen.
EpiData Association.
