What's new in this release?
Analyse-it is constantly improving with each release. All improvements are shown below so you can see what's changed, and decide whether an update affects you.
- Added support for Excel 2007 expanded worksheet size: 1,048,576 rows and 16,384 columns.
- Fixed crash on Refresh/Collate caused by bug in Excel 2007 Service Pack 2.
- Fixed issue on Refresh/Collate when the workbook/worksheet containing the dataset had an apostrophe in the book/sheet name.
- Fixed percent style re-definition warning that sometimes appeared on report output.
- Fixed box-plots drawing where connecting lines sometimes appeared.
- Change to rounding of degrees of freedom in CLSI precision.
- Added option to suffix name of diagnostic test with /H or /L to force ROC algorithm to treat higher/lower values as abnormal.
- Added UpdateReport function to allow updating an Analyse-it report from VBA.
- Fixed issue with significant figures formatting on the regression equation (on the scatter plot) for very large coefficients.
- Fixed Kruskal-Wallis contrasts p-value to a maximum of 1 (Bonferroni method can, in rare cases,calculate p-values larger than 1).
- Fixed cosmetic issue, due to a bug in Excel 2007 charts, where the horizontal X axis appeared sloped.
- Update network licence no longer requires re-activation
- Added check to ensure all observations for Weighted Deming regression are greater-than zero.
- Changed ROC AUC confidence interval to be bounded between 0..1. No changes made to the AUC confidence interval calculation.
- Fixed label on regression output that shows the confidence level %, which always showed as 95% even if a different level was requested. The confidence intervals calculated are correct, and no changes made to the calculations.
- Fixed issue with CV on Weighted Deming Regression, where Analyse-it expected CV as a proportion rather than percentage when one methods CV was specified and other calculated from replicates.
- Fixed issue with Mark Outlier tool on non-English regional settings where comma was used as a thousand separator.
- Added Help button to test dialog box to open help for the test.
- Added index to Help.
- Fixed code-signing certificate expiry issue.
- Statistics in chart legends are now formatted to same precision as the source variables.
- Fixed display issue, where an advisory label indicating when methods compared using Passing-Bablok have a non-linear relationship (p-value > 0.10) was not shown.
- Fixed labelling of > and >= cut-off operators, which were performing >= and > respectively, on Test Performance > Qualitative in Method Evaluation edition.
- Fixed regression residual histogram scaling on Excel 97-2003.
- Fixed chart axis label positioning that appeared on some non-English language versions of Microsoft Excel.
- Kolmogorov-Smirnov now uses the method of Dallal & Wilkinson (The American Statistician, 1986, Vol 40, No 4, pg 294-296) for computation of p-values. The new method is more accurate for small sample sizes.
- Kolmogorov-Smirnov and Anderson-Darling now report the D and A2 statistic directly rather than the sample stabilized A* and D*.
- Added 1st and 3rd Quartile to comparative descriptives output.
- Added TP / TN / FP / FN to ROC curve output.
- Added Quick Start demo to help.
- New! True Excel 2007 support for the new Office RibbonBar™, making working with Analyse-it even easier and faster.
- New! Templates and wizards to simplify setting up datasets.
- Improved! Almost every test in Analyse-it is updated and improved, with more statistics and confidence intervals.
- Improved! Frequency histogram, and dot-, mean- and box-plots can be customised to produce any of the commonly used variations.
- Extensive improvements to the Method Evaluation edition (formerly called the Clinical Laboratory module).
- Improved! Reports now include larger, easier to read charts, and a cleaner modern look.
