Release Notes

Major Updates
  • Log variables can be now either positive or negative (but they never flip signs). Part of the implementation of this feature are two new options 'logMinus=' and 'unlog=' in model/sstate. Negative log variables only work in steady state calculations and simulations, not yet for the Kalman filter (coming soon). See the new tutorial Log Minus for details on how to create and use models with negative log variables. This is still an experimental feature; expect (and report) unexpected behavior.
  • Time-recursive (trec) expressions introduced for tseries objects; the trec expressions are created using a new time-recursive reference object trec. See help on the new object trec in documentation for its use and examples. This is still an experimental feature; expect (and report) unexpected behavior.
Regular Updates
  • Issue 62 (time trend bug) closed, bug fixed. The function dat2ttrend produced incorrect time trends for some range of dates, due to rounding errors.
  • Issue 58 (Flexibility of function ww(...)) closed, feature added. New IRIS configuration option 'wwday=' added to irisset and irisget. The option controls the day of the week that represents weeks when printed by dat2str or when a weekly tseries object is printed on the screen. The default value remains 'Thu' (Thursday) to comply with ISO 8601.
  • Issue 57 (sstate flag) closed, feature added. A new output argument Flag added to model/sstate to indicate success of the steady state solver for each parameterization.
  • Issue 55 (anticipated shocks) closed, bug fixed. The bug caused an error in the Kalman filter when called with anticipated tunes on shocks.
  • Issue 53 (Dbbatch issue) closed, bug fixed. The bug caused an error in dbbatch when called with 'fresh=' true.
  • Issue 52 (max/min functions) closed, feature added. Functions tseries/max and tseries/min also return the positions of the largest/smallest elements found; see help on these functions for more on how the second output argument is organized.
  • Issue 49 (fevd for SVAR ) closed, bug fixed. The bug caused in error in SVAR/fevd when called with multi-parameterization SVAR objects.
  • New option 'baseLine=' in tseries/plotcmp. Use to option to draw a baseline in the RHS bar/area difference graph; the default value is true.
  • New value can be assigned to the option 'plotFunc=' in dbase/dbplot. The option can be a 1-by-N cell array with the first cell being the plotting function handle, and the other cells containing extra input arguments that will be passed to the plotting function.
  • The style processor, qstyle, now handles also stem objects as first-level reference objects.
Minor Backward Compatibility Issue
  • The option 'saveAs=' in qreport/qplot now handles only .csv and .ps file types, not .pdf.
