I am very new to EpiData and am looking to use it for a Study which will require a relational database ie one study participant with multiple visits and tests

Am I right in interpreting that only EpiData Classic Entry 3.1 is the only software that I can currently use.

I have had a trial run using EpiData Manager and it seems perfect for our study. Is it worth holding off setting up my database for the beta release of this version? When is it likely to be released?

Kind regards,

The status and reported problems in the development of v2x of Manager and EntryClient is such that:

a. Basically we find rather stable function with few access violations and remaining major problems b. We found reason to further change the xml structure contained in the epx file when dataforms are in a relational structure. This means that examples you have worked with in the testing of v2x might not work, when we release the next test build.
c. A number of minor points have been found in various parts of the system. Mostly these were of text formulations, which had not taken the relational dataform aspect into consideration.

I expect that the next test version will be  moving from experimental level to pre-release level. This is an indication that we are approaching something which in the end will be applicable for true data entry and documentation.

Further thoughts and reports of or examples of malfunction are highly appreciated.
