SOFA Statistics
  è un’applicazione per effettuare statistiche di ogni genere. Tra le caratteristiche più importanti dell’applicazione troviamo la facilità d’utilizzo garantendo ottimi risultati e tool innovative che troviamo in altre applicazioni commerciali.

Ecco le novità della nuova versione 0.9.14 tratte dal sito del produttore:

· Added min, max, and range to row stats tables.
· Report tables are much easier to read when there are multiple row variables. Added pale line between row variables in left-most column.
· CSV importing has been substantially improved. User gets option of confirming or changing auto-identified csv file delimiter and encoding. Confirming presence of a header is also integrated and the first 20 rows are displayed in a table with visible cell borders. The import is more forgiving of some faults e.g. missing items at the end of a row. These are automatically filled with empty strings. When errors are encountered in csv import SOFA tells user the relevant line number. Also made other minor improvements to (error) messages from csv importing.
· Added Filter button next to Table dropdown to make filtering functionality of SOFA more accessible.
· Much simpler installation for Ubuntu/Linux Mint users. No additional steps required now that SOFA has started using gtk-webkit.
· ANOVAs and similar group by analyses now cope with massive tables when selecting unique values to show in group by drop downs.
· Appropriate messages are shown to users when large tables underlying analyses are about to be run. The user can opt out.
· Changed default for Anova from precision to speed.
· Better messages when chopping group by values shown.
· If SOFA has been opened by an incompatible version of Python it will give a useful message and leave a helpful text file behind with instructions for fixing the problem.
· Better messages when Chi Square warnings about number of rows, cols, or cells.
· Better tool tip for setting MS SQL Server host e.g. my-svr-01, 1433.
· Added minor improvement to tool tips for data tables. It now always shows labelled value if possible and read only status as suffix as appropriate.
· Created more robust startup process with better error messages. Users also able to run test code (e.g. sent by the SOFA developer) and get result. Great for diagnosis.
· Overhauled start code so checks version if possible, updates version, and makes a recovery folder if not current.
