The most important user-visible changes are:
- Fix of bug #5729: consistency checks in the Cox PH module were incorrectly implemented, leading to too many NaNs in the output. Many thanks to Matthias Wuttke from the University Medical
Centre Freiburg, Anne Grotenhuis from the Radboud Medical Centre
Nijmegen, and Luba Pardo and Joris Verkouteren from the Erasmus
Medical Centre Rotterdam for their time and effort in reporting
the bug, helping to identify the problem and testing the fix. Note that for users who only use the linear or logistic regression modules, nothing has changed.
- Fix of bug #5982, which resulted in a failed install of ProbABEL on Mac OS X and FreeBSD. Thanks to user mmold on our forums for uncovering the bug.
Thanks to all who made this release possible, by providing code patches, by being beta testers, by suggesting enhancements, or otherwise.
