The ProbABEL development teams is happy to announce the release of ProbABEL v0.4.0 after 8 months of development.
The most important user-visible changes are:
1) the output files now contain a column with chi2 values.
2) the CoxPH module is now fully functional again and can use filevector (DatABEL) files as well
3) for those of you who use
probabel.pl: the way the -o option works has been slightly changed.
Thanks to all who made this release possible, by providing code, by being beta testers, by suggesting enhancements, or otherwise.
Below follows a more detailed break down of the changes since v0.3.0:
--mmscore. When using
--mmscore, the chi2 values are calculated from the Wald statistic (not implemented for the 2df model yet).
-ooption is not specified. As a result of this fix, usage of the
probabel.plis slightly changed. Before the string specified after
-owas added to the name of the phenotype file. Now it indicated the complete start of the file name (as before model-dependant strings like
_2dfwill be added automatically).
--mmscorecrashes (memory issue). Thanks to Anuj Goel for reporting this bug.
probabel.plwrites to the wrong directory if a relative path is given on the command line (Thanks to Aaron Isaacs for reporting this bug). NOTE: As a result of this fix giving the
probabel.plis no longer interpreted as an addition to the default prefix (which was the name of the phenotype file), but as a full file name (incl. path).
prepare_data.Rscript is mentioned in the manual, but not distributed in the .deb or .tar.gz files
palinear, palogist or pacoxphwith the
-hcomplained about a missing argument.
examplesdirectory has been cleaned up and the test suite has been moved to a separate directory.
More details of the bugs can be found on our R-forge bug tracker. This is also the place where you can inform us of new (or old) bugs.
