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.

[*] 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-1.6.0.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 85199DE8C6648E90

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

Changes from 1.4.1 to 1.6.0:

   in bug reports.

   - Perl is no longer required to build.

   - Build now requires Python 3.4 or later.  (Building PSPP 1.4.0
     also required Python, but it wasn't properly documented at the

   - The Cairo and Pango libraries are now required.

   - gettext 0.20 or later is now required.

   - gtksourceview 4.x is now supported (3.x also remains supported).

   - Table output styles may now be set with the new option
     --table-look and the new SET TLOOK command.

   - New driver option "trim" to remove empty space from PDF,
     PostScript, SVG, and PNG output files.
