Dear all users of EpiData
As quite many of you have already experienced, we have placed new test
versions of EpiData EntryClient, Manager and Analysis on the
http://epidata.dk/testing.php page on December 18th.
The changes implemented in the test versions are documented in detail in
the "change lists" found under each software on the "public release
Current public release versions are 4.6.0 for EntryClient and Manager
and 1.4.0 for Analysis. As the the updated test versions are numbered:
220.127.116.11 for EntryClient and Manager and 1.6.0 for Analysis the major
changes are in Analysis, where we are preparing for introduction of
graphs and other lacking functionality.
18.104.22.168 of analysis
* new command: Recode - very strong including formation of labels and
other documentation * See Commands.html for details (press F1) of
changes to options and the other new commands: keep and version
* Variable list, History, Project overview and Command tree have been
moved to seperate windows * Revised shortcuts and option names, e.g.
unification of label as !l
* !h option works for all commands and prints a simple list of supported
options for a given command.
* Table may be used for only one variable (with options for frequencies)
And many Many minor bugfixes, mostly involving statistic calculation and
special cases (eg. 0 data)
If no major problems are identified the current "test versions" on the
testing page will be "public release versions" in early January.
Warning: As a side-effect of the new variable types (memo and time)
variable, you should notice that if you want to read epx datafiles into
classic analysis, then in the new analysis change those variables to
another form, e.g. one or more string variables.
At this end of our year I wish to express my thanks to all who
supported EpiData Software over the years, including anonymous donors in
the recent year, but also in particular the core group of Torsten
Christiansen, Jamie Hockin and Hans L. Rieder.
I wish all a happy new year and do hope that You will welcome the new
and coming further structured development.
Without all of your support and ideas the project could not continue.
