Release Notes: Can import tab-delimited data. More options for attractive charts and reports. Three new themes are available: sky, prestige (screen), and prestige (print). Better support for automation (i.e. headless, running without a GUI), especially in an international context. Exporting to spreadsheet now relies on a more robust code library (xlwt). Easy to select or deselect many row stats measures at once. Faster opening in many cases.
Release Notes: This release can export results as high-resolution images (PNG), as PDFs, and as tabular output as spreadsheets without needing plugin extensions (this doesn't work for Macs, currently), can export data tables to a spreadsheet without needing a plugin extension, and can backup SOFA data and settings without needing a plugin extension. Variable details content (vdt files) is now sorted, which makes it much easier to read and search for items when checking things.
Release Notes: Scatterplots now have an option for displaying a regression line with slope and intercept details. The export output plug-in (a proprietary add-on) now has an option for exporting tabular data to spreadsheet. Positioning of the legend in scatterplots made by matplotlib was improved. The algorithm for getting optimal min and max axis values was tweaked and is now more sensible when there is no variation.
Release Notes: A cleaner interface for viewing, saving, and exporting output. Data export to the spreadsheet plug-in now automatically exports as CSV as well as .xls. Data importing copes with spaces at the end of dates: trailing spaces are removed and the value is treated properly as a date.
Release Notes: This release adds simplified access to data for most users. SOFA now only displays a list of data tables (instead of showing both a list of databases and tables) unless there are multiple databases to choose from. For most users, the only database will be the default database SOFA uses to store imported or hand-entered data. Slovenian support has been added.
Release Notes: More complex charts and larger series of charts are now supported. It is now possible to override the conservative limits on charts e.g. the maximum number of series or charts or clusters. A warning is shown if the program won't necessarily produce a viable chart or set of charts. Importing now copes with excessively long field names by shortening them automatically (without risking duplicates). MS SQL Server views can now be analyzed, not just tables.
Release Notes: 95% confidence intervals were added to ANOVA and t-tests. You Ccn now sort by category labels in clustered bar charts, line charts, area charts, and box plots. Area charts can be sorted by count/mean/sum. The series and category are now displayed in tooltips e.g. Italy, 20-29 for clustered bar charts, multi-series line charts, and box plots. Statistics output footnotes were improved. Borders on bar-type charts are now optional. Chi square clustered bar charts can cope with higher default limits for number of values. Importing field names with more than 90 characters is now prohibited at the point of import.
Release Notes: This release can back up SOFA data, reports, and variable and project details via an extension plug-in.
Release Notes: 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.
Release Notes: This release adds Mode as an option to Row Stats report tables. Line and area charts can show major labels only as an option. Pie charts have option to display count and percent (not just in the tooltips as at present). Histograms use consistent bins when charted by a second variable. Better placement of y-axis title when wide labels. Pie charts keep consistent colors even if sorted by count rather than value or label. Better support for setting up report folders.
