This page lists the various PoPy releases to date:-
Release date = 18/09/2019
- Added ability to process scripts in PARALLEL. This speeds up computation time for models with a large number of individuals and takes advantage of multi-core computers.
- Created POSTPROCESS section to allow filtering of data create by a PoPy model. For example with a Gen Script
- Added ability to process multiple files in a directory with one command using ‘*’ syntax, see Running multiple scripts, Checking multiple scripts, Format multiple scripts, Edit multiple scripts, Open multiple html files
- Speed improvements to core JOE algorithm, Standard Errors computation and plotting using Grph Script.
- MFit Script now outputs a summary of the fitting results for all populations to a single .csv file.
- Displaying the diagonal elements of
f[X]variance matrices at each iteration. The off diagonal
f[X]elements are only displayed at the end of fitting, due to space considerations.
- Simplified the structure of old ‘LEVEL_PARAMS’, replaced with EFFECTS which removes the redundant ‘split_field’ and ‘split_dict’ attributes.
- Renamed the ‘output_mode’ values in OUTPUT_SCRIPTS, using shorter names ‘gen_script_and_run’ -> ‘run’, ‘gen_script_only’ -> ‘create’, ‘no_output’ -> ‘none’.
- Renamed the ‘FINITE_DIFF’ method in COVARIANCE to ‘SANDWICH’.
Note scripts in v1.0.1 and v1.0.0 format can be automatically updated to v1.0.2 using the popy_format tool.
- Made float_format change format of all float values in output scripts and summary html outputs. Only applied to subset before.
- Fixed bug in iteration number when displaying ObjV over time Objective function at each iteration for simple PopPK example
Release date = 28/06/2019
This is mainly a bug fix release of PoPy
- The Standard Errors are now output in an easy to read format, instead of the whole hessian matrix.
- Changed the configuration file entry required to compute standard errors see COVARIANCE.
- Log files apart from the main log file are now stored in a ‘_log’ sub directory.
- The popy_run tool now asks the user if they want to proceed if the main log file already exist for a given script. Previously only the existence of the output folder was checked. The can still skip this check using the ‘-o’ option.
- Licence manager was giving a date error in North American time zones.
- Bug in configuration file parser for DERIVATIVES section when encountering round brackets (as opposed to expected curly brackets) in Dosing Functions.
- Documentation contents page indexing in PDF was incorrect.
Release date = 24/05/2019
This is the first version of PoPy, so there are no bug fixes or new features only the initial implementation.
Or in other words, all the features and bugs are new!
