This week we have provided new versions on 
    EpiData Manager    Version  (pre-release)
    EpiData EntryClient Version      (pre-release)
    EpiData Analysis      Version     (experimental test )

Manager and EntryClient will be released for production/public use in 
about a week - unless we find more bugs. Analysis is still experimental.

The new features since v4.2 were announced on March 15th (see below). 
Since then we have removed several bugs, including a major bug in 
reading of projects and added a tool "archive". Before public release an 
"unarchive" tool will be provided also. With this you may encrypt any 
file or folder for archiving or mailing.

This version applies stronger (SHA512) encryption and other internal 
changes to the xml structure. Therefore we kindly ask everyone to make a 
copy of their projects and then OPEN THE COPY with the versions 
mentioned above. This applies also to other projects without encryption.

Should you find problems let us know on this list or by mail to info 
(at) epidata.dk .

* Jumps to fields can now also be key fields
* Moved key selection from own windows to dataset properties
* Added tools: Export Securitylog
* Fixed several bugs in exporting to Stata 13+

* Bugfixes related to jump
* Bugfixes related to logging with Extended Access
* Added posibility to mark a record as Verified
  - observations that are "Marked for Deletion" cannot be directly 
marked as verified, but MUST be unmarked from deletion first. (under 
Extended Access this requires READ rights on the dataset)
* Added additional information to the email body if the project is setup 
to create an email on close.


* Added "Days between password change" to Extended Access projects (and 
enforcement thereof)
* Extended logging capabilities when using Extended Access
* Better handling of recent files across Manager/Entryclient/Analysis
* Updated cryptography of both Single Password and Extended Access from 
SHA1 to SHA512

Consequential changes of the above to ensure reading and writing files
