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.

PSPP has been in development, as part of the GNU project, since about 1996, although development has sometimes been very slow.  That entire time, the version number has been less than 1.0.  Now I am increasing it to 1.0 for several reasons.  First, I no longer feel that PSPP must be "complete" before it can be 1.0; instead, I think that it only needs to be useful.  Second, the common ways of numbering software releases have drifted over the years, so that many projects now simply increment the major version on each release, or use the year and month of release as the version number.  Third, every time I make a release, RMS asks me when 1.0 is coming ;-)

Changes from 0.11.0 to 1.0.0:
