STEM version 7.3a release

26 October 2012

A software ‘final release’ is often anything but that!

The ubiquitous ‘service pack’ is now a fact of modern software evolution. So it will come as no great surprise to know that a STEM 7.3a maintenance release is already available as a ‘recommended update’ for all current STEM users.

The full set of minor improvements and corrections is listed in the release notes, but there are two specific and significant reasons to prioritise this upgrade.

  • STEM 7.3 accepts input assumptions linked from the .xlsx or .xlsm packaged files saved by Office 2007 and 2010, but the original implementation has an inherent instability which only became apparent after STEM 7.3 was on general release.
  • An expression transformation which should be classified as having an aggregate output would never in fact be classified as such due to a classic flaw in our original test environment.

eSTEM users will also benefit from the latest HTML export improvements. STEM 7.3a includes all the details demonstrated at the recent STEM User Group Meeting, such as unit labels and clearer period labelling on web-interface charts, as well as rolling up any patches issued since the original STEM 7.3 release.

Note: for compatibility with any future patches, it is essential to replace any previous patches or provisional release candidates with this official STEM version 7.3a.
