Software Updates

While we strive to remain as up-to-date as possible with versions of statistical, qualitative data analysis (QDA), and online survey software applications, the timing of the computer imaging process at Loyola occasionally conflicts with the timing of the release of software updates.

The table below lists the LUC version of our supported applications, the current version of each application, and the projected date when the latest release of each application will be available on open access lab computers and faculty/staff desktops.
