ODK Briefcase v1.13 Beta

We need your help to ship great software, so please download this beta, try it, and report the issues you find. The release will be delayed until all reported issues with the beta are fixed.

@Mickys0918, @kkrawczyk123, @LN, @aurdipas, and others who filed issues: thank you for your contributions! Please confirm that the beta fixes those issues. If not, please report it below.

For everyone else who uses Briefcase, the important changes to verify are:

  • New GeoJSON export companion file:
    • Now you can include a GeoJSON companion file with all spatial data from submissions.
    • Enable this on the UI using the export configuration dialog:
    • Use the -ig --include_geojson CLI flags
  • Also new on the CLI:
    • Remove group names from CSV column names in the exported CSV files with the -rgn --remove_group_names CLI flag
  • Changes in the CSV export filename patterns:
    • Now filenames for repeat groups will be shorter, including only the name of the repeat group (see #663).
  • Changes in the exported audit files:
    • Exporting forms with audit information will include a new aggregated audit CSV file with information from all submissions (linked via instanceID).
    • All the individual audit files will still be exported, but now their filenames will include their related submission's instanceID instead of a numeric sequence.

If you have a bit more time, please also verify the other changes in the release notes. Again, this beta will be released on next week unless you report issues below.

Great functionality the -rgn --remove_group_names CLI flag.
