0.8.11 provides internationalisation support and a major fix for Vista/Windows 7

The latest version of SOFA Statistics has some important improvements.

  • Fixed major bug preventing interaction with data on Vista/Windows 7. It was caused by the “\U” combination inside project configuration files (e.g. C:\Users\…). The backslash U combination was treated as the start of a unicode string (international text etc) but as an invalid one. Windows testing using XP didn’t pick this up because the venerable “Documents and Settings” folder in XP has been replaced with the “Users” folder in Vista and Windows 7.
  • Better support for international text and unicode e.g. René, Identität, François etc.
  • Better responses to errors saving data to database tables. For example, if a user tries to save to database a word with characters in it not supported by the underlying database table (such as a unicode
    letter not found in the Latin character set).
  • For Galician speakers, a version of SOFA Statistics in their own language (currently only working in Ubuntu).

There is also a new version of wxWebKit etc available for Karmic (9.10) users thanks to Christoph Willing. NB this will also help some users of Jaunty (9.04) who have updated packages which conflict with those in SOFA Statistics. More details can be found at http://www.sofastatistics.com/predeb.php.
