ANN: SalStat statistics package 0.1.3
Just a short note to announce the 0.1.3 of SalStat, a relatively new package for scientific statistical analysis written entirely in Python and wxPython. It aims to be a little like SPSS or Statview, but has been written with the "nervous" user in mind (people not comfortable with statistics or computers) as I have taught SPSS to undergrads and seen their problems.
The main website is at http://salstat.sunsite.dk and source code is available from http://salstat.sunsite.dk/downloads.html. For the curious, screenshots are at http://salstat.sunsite.dk/screenshots.html. All code is released under the GNU GPL, and there is a mailing list at sourceforge for anyone interested.
This release consolidates previous releases - a number of tests have been added (such as the Point Biserial Correlation, Linear Regression and single factor between subjects anova), the GUI has been improved, and the output of the analysis (in html) is better formatted (with the anova output as a nice table).
SalStat currently runs on Linux and Windows, and (if the author can get his greasy paws on a nice new Mac) OSX possibly depending upon the status of the OSX port of wxPython. Way to go guys!
