File Release Notes and Changelog
Release Name: statist-1.4.1
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.
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.
