Patches and recent notes
Thank God for all His blessings in 2021 through Jesus Christ.At Christmas we remember Jesus came to give his life a ransom for all. Fix intermittent bug reporting class names of PEDIGREE factor.Fix addressing errors with large workspace.
Extended PREDICT … !TDIFF to report critical values when using residual idv(units)
Calculate Denominator DF and F probability in simple univariate modelsReport Bonferroni & Tukey critical values for PREDICT treatment !TDIFFFix XML formatting errors
Echidna now sets variances in a diag() structure which approach zero to exactly zero which is equivalent to dropping the associated effects from the model. Be wary in case this new feature doesn’t work properly in your particular model.Several issues with fitting Factor Analytic models […]
Allow at(Loc,’Orange’,’Bathurst’).Geno model term syntax. The class labels may not be truncated.!RES qualifier saves data and residuals in a _RES.bin binary file.Some bug fixesAbsorb DIAG-NODE improves speed in some jobsSparse Ci MTNODE allows GRM models to run fasterSystemEnvironment variable Echidna_qual=… parsed after the data line. […]
Revised parsing of the model line to resolve a few issues. Hopefully everything else still works.Revised processing of !A and !I class name lists to resolve some problems. Hopefully all issues are now resolved. If you have build 1.51, I recommend you update it promptly.Allowed […]
Fix bug reading large data with many missing valuesFix bug calculating score for bivariate, unbalanced data and singularities
Fix bug with id(units).us(Tr) processingFix bug processing predict gen when gen modelled via Cgen (a contrast)Faster prediction. The predict absorption step has been reorganised and now runs substantially faster but let me know of any issues.
Fix bug absorbing working variables in a large jobFix bug in control of sorting data for spatial analysis Detect error in the pedigree fileAllow for longer lines in data file (previous limit was 5000 characters)Fix bugs encoding factors when (un)declared initial size is not enough
