File Release Notes and Changelog
Release Name: statist-1.3.2
Statist is very portable. It can be compiled in practically any system with any C compiler.
INCOMPATIBLE CHANGES IN VERSION 1.3.2 ===================================== * When answering a question of the kind "y/N", if the user press <Enter>, it will be assumed that the answer is "No". Until version 1.3.1, pressing <Enter> would cancel the action. This new behavior may break some scripts. NEW FEATURES IN VERSION 1.3.2 ============================= * Colorized output. The colors are optional and customizable. This feature is not available if statist is compiled under DOS/Windows. * Added directory "examples", with some data files that will make statist easier for first time users. * Graphics labels no longer include the string "STATIST: ". Instead, users can easily add their own (optional) string, which can include single quotes, double quotes and line breaks ("\n"). * Almost all fatal errors were converted into normal errors while statist is running interactively. Wrong command line options, including wrong data file name, still is considered a fatal error because this is the quickest way of giving to users a second chance of passing the correct parameters. However, after succesfuly started, statist should never quits abruptly. The only exception is if it runs out of memory. * Commands sent to gnuplot are saved and are listed when the user chooses "Enter gnuplot commands". Users no longer need to know gnuplot syntax to make simple changes in the graphics (labels, colors, etc...). BUGS FIXED IN VERSION 1.3.2 ============================= * The options --xcols and --xsample no longer must be the first parameter passed to statist. This closes the bug reported on November 4, 2005. * Replaced the function tmpnam() with tmpfile() to avoid gcc warning that statist uses a dangerous function. * The probit analysis was opening the already opened file statist.log and, then, closing it. Fixed. * Fixed bug in "List data of columns". Big values could cause buffer overrun.
