PSPP 0.8.2 has been released

Item posted by Ben Pfaff <blp> on Tue 14 Jan 2014 06:15:45 AM UTC.

I'm very pleased to announce the release of a new version of GNU PSPP. PSPP is a program for statistical analysis of sampled data. It is a free replacement for the proprietary program SPSS.

Changes from 0.8.1 to 0.8.2:

  • Charts are now rendered with colours from the Tango palette instead of fully saturated primaries.
  • Support for new system file variants:
    • PSPP can now read and write ZCOMPRESSED system files, which compress data much more effectively than older "compressed" files. (The older format is still supported.)
    • PSPP can now decrypt encrypted system files, using the new pspp-convert utility. The encrypted system file format is unacceptably insecure, so to discourage its use PSPP and PSPPIRE do not directly read or write this format.
  • Missing values for long string variables are now read from and written to system files in an SPSS-compatible fashion. (Earlier versions of PSPP that supported missing values for long string variables wrote them to system files in an SPSS-incompatible way. To fix the problem, read the system file with this version of PSPP and then save a new copy of it.)
  • pspp-convert, a new standalone utility for converting SPSS system and portable files to other formats, is now included. The initial version supports comma-separated value files as output format. pspp-convert can also decrypt encrypted system files.
  • Build changes:
    • zlib is now a required dependency. (Previously it was optional.)

Please send PSPP bug reports to bug-gnu-pspp@gnu.org.
