Analytica 4.2 beta Release Notes/Changes in

<< Back to Beta Tester Page

This page lists changes in since beta build This is a patch build that we issued immediately following the announced release of 4.2.0 when a high-severity bug was discovered. The first bullet is the primary fix, the others shown are all very minor.


  • (High severity) Nearly all syntax errors were not being reported to the user when a definition was entered.
Main reason for the patch release.
Also, it was returning the expression up to the point of the syntax error as the parsed definition, making it seem like it parsed okay.

  • Number format dialog for a choice node defined on a different index wasn't initializing with the correct number format for the node.
  • After running out of memory, the close-Analytica option wasn't functional.

  • "%salesUrl" was appearing in an error message on the Licensing Dialog, where it should have been
