OpinionFinder 2.x Release Page

OpinionFinder 2.x Available versions

OpinionFinder 1.x relied on many external software packages (e.g. SUNDANCE, SCOL, BoosTexter) which were neither built nor supported by our group. Since OpinionFinder was originally released in 2005, there were some compatibility issues with versions of various software and packages. We had reports that these problems sometimes resulted in an exhausting and even unsuccessful installation process of OpinionFinder. Currently, we released OpinionFinder 2 which is written in Java and is platform-independent.
