We've released yet another update to Inquisit 3 with some great new features and a bunch of bug fixes, almost all of which were prompted by feedback from our user community.
Perhaps the biggest new feature is the ability to launch Inquisit web scripts using Java Web Start. This provides a friendlier download experience for Firefox users who have the java runtime installed on their computer (those without java can still use the plugin). For now, the java option is off by default so as not to change the behavior of experiments in progress, but you can easily turn it on using the registration wizard.
Another cool new feature - Inquisit now allows participants to save their data file if for some reason Inquisit can not access the location specified in the script. This allows you to easily save your data if, for example, the paricipant's computer loses network connectivity, or your data file share computer is mistakenly rebooted in the the middle of data collection. Thanks to "Blackadder" for his impassioned plea and smart design ideas.
