Dear all,

Census 1.1 has been released to beta. This version includes a number of

* The R(D)COM library has been removed, fixing some nasty incompatibilities
with R version 2.8.0 and above (affecting Xpose plotting). It has been
replaced with R-based file output, including support for PDF, JPG, PNG, BMP,
Postscript and Xfig formats. Files have the additional advantage of being
retained after the plot window is closed.
* An R interaction layer and console window, controlled by a taskbar button,
has been added.
* MD5 file fingerprints are now optionally collected for NONMEM input and
output, and checked for changes whenever accessed within Census.

You can get it from, as usual. Comments,
suggestions, support requests, bug reports and the like are as always very
welcome, and can be sent to the Census mailing list - registration is
provided at

Census is a comprehensive project manager for NONMEM, providing detailed
summary, comparison and overview of the runs comprising a given project,
including the display of output data, post-run processing, and rapid
diagnostic plots through tight integration with Xpose. While it runs only
under Windows, it can read any NONMEM output to which Windows has access to
via drive mapping.

Census is, and will remain, free software under the Mozilla Public License,
version 1.1.

Last but not least, while this is a stable release, it's still technically a
beta, incorporating a brand new backend, and it has not been as rigorously
tested as a full release might be. Please bear this in mind before deleting
your old versions of the software...
