The ANU Data Mining Group is pleased to announce the release of
Febrl 0.4, a Python based open source prototype data standardisation,
record linkage and deduplication system.

Febrl 0.4 includes a comprehensive graphical user interface (GUI) based
on PyGTK. This will facilitate record linkage for users that have no
experience in the Python programming language.

Febrl 0.4 contains many new field comparison functions, several new
indexing (blocking) techniques and novel classification approaches.
All Febrl modules have been re-designed, improved, and updated to
take advantage of new features made available in Python version 2.5.

Febrl is available under a free, open source license, which we hope
will encourage others to contribute to its further development and
support. Contact details, background information and research papers
and presentations are all available from the project Web site at:


while the Febrl 0.4 code and documentation can be downloaded from:
