=== Details ===
==== qalculate ====
Version update (3.20.1 -> 4.2.0)
- Update to 4.2.0:
- Option to plot real and imaginary parts separately (enabled
by default)
- Variable spacing of x values in plot (unless step size is used)
- Updated plot() function with arguments for specification of
plot options (in any order after the third argument)
- Polar plot style
- Ask the user for the desired sinc() variant (unnormalized or
normalized)
- Support for binary-coded decimals (BCD)
- Show names with underscore capitalized and with underscore
removed (with some exceptions)
- Additional information units
- Units for volumetric flow rate
- Tradtional numbers (e.g. dozen, score)
- Show warning when log() is used with a single argument, and
always show second argument of log()
- Show single digit suffixes using Unicode subscript (CLI)
- Make names with a single character followed by digits
case-sensitive with suffix by default
- Accept more than two arguments in gcd() and lcm()
- Interpret a single vector argument as a list of arguments if
function requires more than one argument
- Fix limit of floor(), ceil(), and trunc()
- Fix plotting of derivatives and integrals
- Fix randpoisson()
- Fix reactivation of object, after object that caused
deactivation is removed
- Update to 4.1.1:
- Restrict use of reciprocal in unit conversion, e.g. invert in
"5m/s to s/m" (= 0.2 s/m) but not in "500/lb to g" (= 1.1/g)
- New mHg unit (allows use with prefixes other than milli)
- Always display abbreviated unit name (symbol) with
abbreviated prefix (when unit only has short name)
- Minor improvements to automatic unit conversion
- Fix display of (1 + f(x))/n
- Save definitions on exit (only) if definitions has changed
regardless of interactive mode status (qalc)
- Update to 4.1:
- Use non-breaking narrow space as digit separator in
reasonably short numbers, and between quantity and unit
- Update value of austronomical unit
- Fix segfault (when compiled with -D_GLIBCXX_ASSERTIONS) with
local digit grouping when separator is empty (e.g. with
ignore locale)
- Fix freezes and crashes with extrememly large vectors and
matrices
- Fix segfault (when compiled with -D_GLIBCXX_ASSERTIONS) in
matrix multiplication
- Minor bug fixes and feature improvements (see the ChangeLog
for more details)
- Update to 4.0:
- New matrix syntax (column separated by space or comma, rows
separated by semicolon, as in matlab)
- Do not make any difference between a vector and a matrix with
a single row, or between a scalar and matrix with a single
element
- Support input of functions, units, and variables with
underscores omitted in names (e.g. µ0 = µ_0, FermiCoupling
= fermi_coupling), with some exceptions
- Option to disable "simplified" percentage calculations (e.g.
interpret 100 + 20% as 100 + 0.2 instead of 100 × 120%)
- Option to truncate numbers (instead of round to nearest) in
result
- Convert K, Hz, and 1/m to J (and derived units) using
conversion factor constants (e.g. 1/(550nm) to eV ? 2.25
eV)
- Allow use of M as 10^6 without unit
- New ksi unit
- New functions: divisors(), rate(), vertcat(), horzcat()
- New plastic number (?) constant, and new "hbar" name for
reduced Planck constant, and add second Unicode codepoint for
µ-sign in constants
- Allow zero (1st and/or 2nd argument) in comb() and perm(),
and return zero if second argument (k) is greater than the
first (n)
- Calculate statistical functions (e.g. mode(), min(), max(),
percentile()) separately for each column of matrix
- Return the lowest value if there are multiple values with
equal frequency in mode()
- Parse text argument as expression if concatenate function
name is found in text string, and fix concatenate returning
date
- New layout for output of result of matrices and equations
(qalc)
- Fix Unicode handling on platforms where char is not signed
- Fix bitrot()
- Fix segfault in multisolve() when initial order of equations
is not optimal
- Fix segfault with empty sqrt inside sqrt, e.g. sqrt(1+sqrt())
- Fix incompletely calculated nounit(), e.g. in unit conversion
- Update to 3.22.0:
- New functions: linearfit(), quadraticfit(), cubicfit(),
ramlatency(), parallel()
- Merged inv() and inverse() functions
- Improved and extended parallel operator (|| is interpreted as
parallel if units are used)
- Allow nested subfunctions
- Do not stop testing function argument values after first failure
- Solve x^(x^(-a))=b
- Improved simplification: Im(-x)=-Im(x), Re(-x)=-Re(x)
- Handle units in plot data (remove and set as y-axis label)
- Avoid precision loss on output of interval when saving
approximate variable
- Fix pearson() and spearman()
- Fix display of incompletely solved equation with dual
approximation in some cases
- Fix genvector() when step size requires evaluation
- Fix a%%-b (interpret %% as mod, not percent)
- Fix asin(x)+bcos(x)=c
- Minor bug fixes and feature improvements
- [qacalc] Support "--" as end of options
- [qacalc] New --defaults command line option
- [qacalc] Configurable SIGINT (Ctrl+C) action (exit orderly by
default)
- [qacalc] Vertical space option (vspace)
- [qacalc] Clear command with Ctrl+L shortcut
- [qacalc] Apply same logic with separate to command, as with "to" at
end of expression, when result contains no unit
- [qacalc] Fix "to unicode"
- Update to 3.21.0:
- Ask (once) for correct interpretation of ambiguous implicit
multiplication
