ODK-X Tool Suite Release - v2.1.4

The latest release of the ODK-X Tool Suite is now available for download!

The v2.1.4 tools are backward compatible with v2.1.* BUT not backward compatible with previous versions (v2.0.*). The incompatibility is internal to the ODK-X tools, all external files such as XLSX forms, JavaScript/HTML, and server interfaces are unaffected. Most users should experience a smooth upgrade.

This is a maintenance release meaning that many libraries have been updated. We have tried to test for incompatibilities, but we may not have found them all. Please report any problems here.
