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.
