Release Name: statist-1.4.1

Release Notes
Statist-1.4.1

  Statist is very portable.  It can be compiled in practically any
  system with any C compiler. However, and the system must have
  libintl and libiconv to compile the program with support for
  languages other than English.  If gnuplot is installed, statist
  can create graphics.
Change Log
NEW FEATURES IN VERSION 1.4.1
=============================

 * Statist now can open csv files. It will try to discover whether
   the file has a header with column names, what is the field
   separator, and what is the decimal separator. If necessary,
   these parameters might be set using command line options.

 * Gnuplot graphics now can have strings with letters of different
   alphabets if the environment charset is UTF-8 and the user
   chooses UTF-8 as the "gnuplot_charset" in the statistrc file.
	
 * Added menu item "Save last gnuplot graphic as png".

 * Added statistrc options "gnuplot_default_term" and
   "gnuplot_png_font".

 * Do not add the string "#%" to files created with --xcols if
   either the command line option --header was used or the
   statistrc option autodetect_header is active.


BUGS FIXED IN VERSION 1.4.1
===========================

 * No longer crashing if gnuplot isn't installed and the user
   tries to run a graphic.
 
 * No longer crashing on menu item 4.1 if there is a "nan" value
   in the datafile. Now, the string "nan" is read as missing
   value.
 
 * Fixed wrong alignment of columns in "Frequency table", "Compare
   means", and "Show data of columns" when the locale charset was
   UTF-8, and there is non-ascii characters.
 
 * The min and max values chosen by the user in menu item 4.1
   now are used used even if the number of classes wasn't chosen
   too.
 
 * Partial correlation with five variables now prints some
   correlations that were missing in the output.
 
 * The function extract_cols() now correctly extract non-numeric
   values from fixed width column files, but outputs a warning if
   such a value is found.
 
 * "Yes/No" questions might be answered in the language that
   statist is running.
 
 * The alert character (^G) no longer is written to statist.log.
 
 * Fixed crash in out_r() on AMD64 when the option --log was
   active.
 
 * Removes the GPL_DAT file when the user sends to gnuplot the
   "quit" command.
 
 * Michael Gebhardt translated the new strings into German.
