0.9.3 has nice new graphical output for the Chi Square Test and a few other enhancements. At least as important, however, are all the bug fixes. These are the result of a new pre-release testing process.
Underlying the clustered bar charts is the boomslang library, which provides a simplified interface to common matplotlib charts. What a great idea, and what a great name for a Python library.
Summary of new features in version 0.9.3:
- Chi Square output includes clustered bar charts to display proportions and frequencies for the two variables selected.
- Drop-downs default to the most recently used database and table. This recognises that most of the time you are using the same table as you used in the last analysis.
- More helpful messages if trying to use variables with too many values for Chi Square.
- Fix for Linux users with a 4-digit year date format.
- Fixed encoding display issue for Windows users.
- Miscellaneous fixes to the behaviour of the table design dialog. Numerous bugs were flushed out by more extensive user testing before release.
- The Expand button is disabled if a report runs but not successfully (e.g. returns a warning).
- The default database and table are saved correctly according to database engine (e.g. MySQL, MS Access etc). This ensures valid projects can always open.
