Updated ODK Aggregate Beta 3 installers available for download

Because of a UTF-8 (non-European) character handling issue in form
definitions, we've updated the ODK Aggregate Beta 3 Installers for Windows,
Linux and OSX. This release also includes a few additional bug fixes.
Thank you Alex for reporting the UTF-8 issue!

*If upgrading *on top of an existing install (AppEngine or Tomcat), *you must
*follow the instructions in the release notes.

http://code.google.com/p/opendatakit/wiki/AggregateReleaseNotes

Failure to follow those instructions will leave Aggregate in a state where
it will appear to be in "continual browser refresh."

New installs to new AppEngine application ids or to new MySQL or
PostgreSQL databases don't require any special actions.

The 'beta 3 utf-8' can be downloaded here:
http://code.google.com/p/opendatakit/downloads/list
Please follow the steps in the release notes if upgrading:
http://code.google.com/p/opendatakit/wiki/AggregateReleaseNotes
The security page is unchanged:
http://code.google.com/p/opendatakit/wiki/AggregateSecurity

https://opendatakit.appspot.com/ is now running Beta 3 utf-8.

Please file any bug reports in our issue tracker, and be sure to note what
software versions you're using (e.g., ODK Collect 1.1.7 beta and/or ODK
Aggregate 1.0 beta 3 utf-8):

We had a lot of people from the community provide great feedback and code
that went into this release, and we'd like to thank everyone for helping to
improve and push the project forward!

Thanks Mitch,

have just tried to upgrade (from previous beta 3) on GAE - but I get
the error message:

··· ------------------------ INFO: Successfully processed ODKAggregate/WEB-INF/datastore- indexes.xml Beginning server interaction for hew-datacollect.appspot.com... 0% Created staging directory at: '/tmp/appcfg856894520183533046.tmp' 5% Scanning for jsp files. 20% Scanning files on local disk. 25% Scanned 250 files. 28% Initiating update.

Please see the logs [/tmp/appcfg2105514967526606264.log] for further
information.

The logs don't seem to give me very much useful info (to me at least)

  • see end of this message for the stack trace. I'd tried by installing
    on top of an existing ODK Aggregate app, so I then created a new app
    id and generated a new deployment for this appid - but this failed too
    (same message).

Not sure if this is a temporary problem with GAE or if others have
seen this too. I googled the error but didn't find any solution - some
suggested editing the WEB-INF/appengine-web.xml file (for the version
no and app id), but I didn't have any luck with these solutions either
(same error message). For info I also tried with the data store write
enabled/disabled and with the app enabled/disabled (again same error).

Will try again later (in case it's a temp problem), but thought I;d
post up in case anyone else is having the same issue.

Cheers,
Alex

These are random problems that occur during the deployment of an application
to Google AppEngine.
I had similar problems yesterday at about 3pm pacific time; my second
attempt succeeded. I think there was a glitch of some sort at Google.

Try deploying again. Within the "ODK Aggregate" directory, double-click the
README.html and follow the directions.

Thanks for the info,

just worked out that this was actually a problem between keyboard and
chair - I'd entered 'hew-datacollect.appspot.com' rather than just
'hew-datacollect' when generating the files to upload :frowning: I should
read the instructions more carefully...

Have successfully updated now.
