- Namegenerator: Number of max. allowed alteri: calculation changed
- Nameinterpreter: radiobox table scrolling problem fixed
- Config dialog: sector and circle attribute list contains an empty row: fixed
- Filter in interview mode fixed
- Small font size bug: VennMaker Menu font size can be changed in Free network drawing mode > menu: About > Set global font size
Bug fix: Null pointer exceptions
VennMaker: Full version is now for free
- CSV export: When a malformed attribute was used, then the export did not work.
- Configuration: Relation visualization: Adding relational attribute values can cause an error
- Configuration: Reopend config dialog: changed sector sizes will not displayed again
- Configuration dialog: Sector attribute values could not be changed correctly
- Template loading: Sometimes the relation color, thickness or pattern could not be loaded
- Configuration dialog: Sometimes the relation color, thickness or pattern could not be changed
- Configuration dialog: Null pointer exceptions fixed
- Interview mode: Ego questions: If long answer text were used, it happend that the text were not shown.
- Configuration: If the attribute values of an attributsymbol attribut was deleted, an error occurred sometimes.
- VennMaker Hist Modul: Creating relations with the relation dialog produced an error message.
- Interview element: Some elements didn’t correctly display some characters (e.g. Hebrew, Arabic or Chinese)
- Relation group data export as csv matrix file: sometimes the matrix was defect
- Config dialog: removing attributes caused sometime an error messages.
- Add new functions with the help of modules
- Example: add geographical maps and coordinates (latitude/longitude) via plugin
- Relation color adjustment problem fixed
- Interview dialog: some display errors fixed
- Adding existing actors in a cloned network map causing somtimes an error
- Compute dialog: missing calculation of the frequency of actors per sector and concentric circles repaired.
- Automatically adding actor to the related sector and concentric circle
- Image export (jpg/png/svg) improved
- Configuration dialog contains some bugs
- Digital questionnaire contains some bugs
- Save URLs in free answer attributes and open the URLs directly in the browser
- Legend: single visual elements can be shown or hidden
- Actor Pie: sometimes the attribute was wrong
- Export: Proximity prestige: sometimes the results was wrong
- Clone network dialog: cancel button did not function correctly
- Interview element: relation: Some modifications did not function correctly
- Sometimes VennMaker did not start
- Filter: Some error occures depending on the filter setting
- Sometimes the templates did not load correctly
- Interview element: a global minium number of alteri can be defined
- Interview element: a global maximum number of alteri can be defined
- Interview element: switch to network and auto draw element: VennMaker automatically draw the network after automatically switching to the network map
- Compute dialog: the frequency of all relational and categorical attribute values will be computed now
- Error dialog: Contains a additional input field for writing additional error descriptions for the software developer
- The network visualizing time increased
- Two additional mouse cursor symbols: one for „draw actor“ and one for „draw relation“
- Modifying the relational attribute values had no effect on the relation color, thickness or dashing
- Creating network maps with the same names
- Time measurment for the interview mode implemented
- The switch between the questionnaire items did not work correctly.
- New features: displaying relational attributes and values as line labeling or tool tip new questionnaire mode:
- different types of name generators elements
- different types of name interpreters elements
- control the interview sequence with attribute filters
- collecting relational data
- different types of questionnaire elements for ego, alter, relations and meta elements
- separate files for the configuration (template) and the interview data
- all relations can be displayed and edited in a relation table
- the network data can be exported as a pajek net file
- the user can add notes to each network map
- a new start dialog added
- a new menu language added: French
- Clicking on the windows close button caused sometimes a save error.

- Perform Interview: Items will be display in full screen mode
- Perform Interview: directed relations will be displayed as arrows again
- Perform Interview: name interpretator and matrix: free answer for each actor is now possible
- Perform Interview: name interpretator and matrix: scroll function implemented
