Project Release Information
This release can back up SOFA data, reports, and variable and project details via an extension plug-in.
Sum was added as an option for charting e.g. a line chart showing total income per month by product. Matplotlib scatterplots now have optimal min and max settings calculated for their x-axis. A footnote was added to Wilcoxon output explaining that different statistics packages may report the test statistic differently. Miscellaneous fixes were made to chart layout including left margin offset. It is now easier to add new variable definition files from within the dialog for choosing them. Recode column labels and help content were modified to reduce confusion about which columns to enter range information into.
This release adds lower and upper quartiles to Row Stats report tables, makes Box plots start the y-axis from just below the minimum y value of the data unless the content is close enough to the bottom of the graph to make it worth using 0 anyway, makes showing the percent sign in percent columns for report tables optional, makes SOFA display value labels sorted by the numerical version of numbers even if stored as text, adds more valid US date formats, adds new help buttons for importing data and to advise the user on how to make flexible data filters, and handles the English translations better.
Better support for non-English translations and much better, smaller, and simpler installers for Windows and Mac OS X.
Installation into non-English environments should now work without any problems.
