After a brief slowdown, we are now back to developing Ωnyx with full throttle. Today, we’d like to present you a new version (0.9-712) that is able to import IBM’s SPSS files directly into Ωnyx. This will save SPSS users an extra step of exporting their files to a text file. Just drag your SPSS file (*.sav) onto the Ωnyx desktop and start modeling your data immediately! The SPSS import is restriced to numeric variables and is not fully tested but should work for most non-esoteric SPSS files. Still, we decided to roll out this feature but issue a reminder to compare summary statistics of imported variables between Ωnyx and SPSS to make sure that variables were imported correctly.
Moreover, we have fixed a couple of annoying bugs. Among the fixed problems are variance paths that sometimes appeared to be lost in the graph, problems with the undo function and problems with pasting model parts if the mouse was outside the model panel.
