I'm very pleased to announce the release of a new version of GNU PSPP.
PSPP is a program for statistical analysis of sampled data.  It is a
free replacement for the proprietary program SPSS.

This is a test release for version 2.0.0, which I plan to release in
November, barring important bug reports.

Here are the compressed sources and a GPG detached signature[*]:

Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:

[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify pspp-2.0.0-pre2.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver --recv-keys C2D1AB061656AAC54B5E975485199DE8C6648E90

or obtain the project members' keys directly from Savannah:

  wget -q -O- '' | gpg --import -

Either way, afterward, rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

Changes from 1.6.2 to 2.0.0-pre2:

 * The CTABLES command is now implemented.

 * FREQUENCIES now honors the LAYERED setting on SPLIT FILE.


   - New aggregation functions CGT, CLT, CIN, and COUT.

   - Break variables are now optional.

 * ADD FILES, MATCH FILES, and UPDATE now allow string variables with
   the same name to have different widths.

 * CROSSTABS now calculates significance of Pearson and Spearman
   correlations in symmetric measures.

 * DISPLAY MACROS is now implemented.

 * SET SUMMARY is now implemented.

 * SHOW ENVIRONMENT is now implemented.

 * Removed the MODIFY VARS command, which is not in SPSS.

 * Building from a Git repository, which previously required GIMP, now
   requires rsvg-convert from librsvg2 instead.

 * The pspp-dump-sav program is no longer installed by default.

 * Improved the search options in the syntax editor.

 * Localisations for the ar (Arabic) and ta (Tamil) locales have been added.

 * Journaling is now enabled by default when PSPP or PSPPIRE is
   started interactively.  In PSPPIRE, use Edit|Options to override
   the default.
