We recently visited Statistics New Zealand to help them get started with Blaise 5. Here's what they had to say about our visit:
Stats NZ has used Blaise 4 to run our social surveys for the last two decades and, when it was time to start our Blaise 5 journey, we approached Team Blaise. Tessa Carati and Ralph Dolmans travelled to New Zealand in June 2019 to deliver Blaise 5 training and to work with us on the future design, development and deployment of Blaise 5.
Version 5.6.1 was released on June 28, 2019.
It can be found in the usual location on our ftp-server.
The 5.6.1 version of the Android App is also available, in the Google Play Store. We're still in discussion on where to post the iOS App.
This version includes several new major features: e.g Generic Pages, Wave Projects, Text Translation and CATI extensions
There are several new samples shipped with the system. These show how new functionalities work.
This video tutorial is the fourth and last of several videos about Manipula Dialogs (Maniplus in Blaise 4). It describes how to make changes to the default templates that are used to build up a Dialog. You can change these to match your house style for instance. It assumes some knowlegde about the Resource Editor.
We'd appreciate your feedback, so feel free to leave a comment on YouTube or facebook if you can.
This February, Team Blaise participated in the kick-off meeting for the 2021 Cyprus Population Census. Previously, Team Blaise helped CYSTAT develop the census system for their 2011 Census, which was conducted using Blaise 4 on netbooks. Following the positive results of 2011, CYSTAT asked Team Blaise to help again.
This video tutorial is the third of several videos about Manipula Dialogs (Maniplus in Blaise 4). It describes how you can convert Blaise 4 Maniplus dialogs to Blaise 5 Manipula Dialogs and how to change the layout of those Dialogs.
We'd appreciate your feedback, so feel free to leave a comment on YouTube if you can.
From 4 to 6 March 2019, we gave the Blaise 5 Layout course at CSO, the Central Statistics Office in Ireland. They are moving from Blaise 4 to Blaise 5 and were eager to learn about the possibilities of Blaise 5.
