[EpiData-list] News on software upgrades and EpiData software on Mac Catalina ?

Dear all

Within short time new "pre-public" versions of EpiData Software 
(Manager, EntryClient and Analysis) will appear on the testing.php page 
of EpiData. Apart from bug fixes the main upgrading is in Analysis. A 
dedicated mail will be posted once the updates are placed there.

Another issue is that a few users have asked when EpiData software will 
be available for the MacOS Catalina. This is not to easy to answer since 
it seems that Apple has applied further special restrictions.

In short we can guide you with this (unfortunated) message:

Mac users of Epidata software should not upgrade their operating system 
to MacOS Catalina. Current Mac versions of Epidata will not run under 
this most recent version of MacOS because of restrictions Apple has put 
into the operating system. We are working on 64-bit Mac versions of the 
software that can be installed on MacOS Catalina and will advise users 
when these are ready.

More news on this later when the tests are more extensive and time has 
permitted the development.

Best wishes to all
