I'm very pleased to announce the release of a new version of GNU PSPP.
PSPP is a program for statistical analysis of sampled data.  It is a
free replacement for the proprietary program SPSS.

PSPP has been in development, as part of the GNU project, since about
1996, although development has sometimes been very slow.  That entire
time, the version number has been less than 1.0.  Now I am increasing
it to 1.0 for several reasons.  First, I no longer feel that PSPP must
be "complete" before it can be 1.0; instead, I think that it only
needs to be useful.  Second, the common ways of numbering software
releases have drifted over the years, so that many projects now simply
increment the major version on each release, or use the year and month
of release as the version number.  Third, every time I make a release,
RMS asks me when 1.0 is coming ;-)

Here are the compressed sources and a GPG detached signature[*]:

Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:

[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify pspp-1.0.0.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver --recv-keys C6648E90

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

Changes from 0.11.0 to 1.0.0:

 * Translation updates.
