XLSForm and version attribute support

Dear ODKers,

I don't see any evidence that XLSForm supports versioning, but just wanted
to check to make sure that I hadn't missed it. If the "version" attribute
were to be set on the form XML's root instance tag (along side the existing
"id" attribute), then it would likely come from a version setting on the
Settings worksheet. I can add this to the XLSForm version that we use for
our projects, but wanted to check on if/how it would be supported in the
public version. (Note that this is all relevant for the Aggregate v1.1
preview release. In that release, you can upload updated form definitions
-- but only if you increment the form's version.)

Thanks,

Chris

Chris,

That is a great question and I am not sure of the answer. I have
created an issue and assigned it to the person in charge of ODK
XLSForm upkeep. Star the issue and you will get the email updates of
any changes to the issue.

The version attribute can now be specified in XLSForm settings sheets.

Fantastic -- thanks!

I don't see this change in the github/modilabs/pyxform sources, though.
I'll check in formhub and also keep my eye out for future commits.

Thanks again,

Chris

Chis and I have discussed this though email, so this reply is for anyone
else with the same question. The version of XLSForm on the ODK site is the
master branch from this repository:


The links on the ODK google code sitehttp://code.google.com/p/opendatakit/wiki/SourceTab?tm=4have been updated to point to it.
