Enketo is running! Please access Enketo forms from your ODK installation.

version: 3.1.0-1-g1dd2539

We will hopefully upgrade the Enketo instance soon. I will update the testing instance with the latest Enketo release and invite the community to test before we release it on the public servers :+1:
