SciDAVis

0.2.4
22 June 2010

Data analysis and visualization, plot scientific data.

Overview

SciDAVis is a user-friendly data analysis and visualization program primarily aimed at high-quality plotting of scientific data. It strives to combine an intuitive, easy-to-use graphical user interface with powerful features such as Python scriptability.

What's new in SciDAVis

Version 0.2.4:
  • Some parts of the Python API have been marked as deprecated and generate warnings when used. This may be a bit unusual for a bugfix release; on the other hand, they won\'t be removed any time soon and inserting the deprecation warnings now will give everyone as much time as possible for getting accustomed to the API we\'re moving towards.

    Most prominently,
    Table.cell(column,row) and
    Table.setCell(column,row,value)
    are deprecated in favour of
    Table.column(column - 1).valueAt(row - 1) and
    Table.column(column - 1).setValueAt(row - 1, value) (note that the column/row INDICES DIFFER BY ONE!); the same goes for
    Table.text(c,r) -> Table.column(c - 1).textAt(r - 1) and
    Table.setText(c,r,text) -> Table.column(c - 1).setTextAt(r - 1,text).

    This serves multiple purposes. It simplifies the interfaces by grouping all functionality specific to a certain column in the Column class; it allows column objects to be stored and passed around; and it moves from the unconventional 1-based indexing to the more conventional 0-based indexing. Future additions to the API will increasingly make use of the columns-as-objects paradigm.

  • lots of bugfixes, again including crashes
  • fixed compatibility issues with Qt 4.6 and SIP 4.9
  • performance improvements
  • substantially improved support for plots involving date/time data
  • added two Czech translations: a default one by Pavel Fric (feedback requested via
  • http://fripohled.blogspot.com) and an alternative one by Jan Helebrant

It is ridiculous to give a developer - especially on who has moved their application over to the Mac, at their own expense, for FREE - a 1-star review because they didn't make installation automatic. Perhaps a point off for this is perhaps reasonable, but come on . . . ! Let me the first to apologize for SOME Mac users, who apparently think that developers should all work for free. I seriously doubt that this user is a seasoned professional. Some of us do truly appreciate all those who attempt to port for Mac. It is certainly nice to have self-installing .DMGs, and nice Mac-like icons, but too much emphasis is placed on this when reviews in MU should focus on all the technical issues, and to vote according to balanced criteria. When an application is truly a free app, as this appears to be, then reviews should also take this into consideration. I would give this 4-stars for effort, but have not yet installed it, because I am a typical lazy Mac user and am used to auto-install features. But, at least I am willing to admit my biases. : ) Thanks for the port. Will examine this more closely asap. CIAO

Developers of SciDAVis and Labplot have teamed up to create a common backend for both the programs. The development is happening on the Labplot 2 branch, SciDAVis development will be slowed down as they concentrate on the new graphing engine. An alternative for SciDAVis is Veusz. it more feature complete than SciDAVis http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/21029/veusz
