version 1 of EpiData Manager and EntryClient.

Users are encouraged to:
a. test the software

with the currently implemented functionality.

Remaining issues before actual release are:

            www.epidata.org/dokuwiki/ including a schema file for the xml
b. Updating and finalising introduction documents and guides
c. Updating wiki system with examples
d. Fixing any bugs reported

Following release of version 1 development continues and will focus on:
