Software: LabPlot 2.5, GNU Parallel 20180622 ('Kim Trump'), Ick ALPHA-6

  • LabPlot 2.5 released
    It took much more time to finalize the release than we planned in the beginning after the 2.4 release was done.

The source code and the installers for Windows and for Mac OS X can be found on our download page, as usual. In this release we again increased the number of data sources and added the support for the import of data from SQL databases. The user can import either from single tables or import the result of a custom SQL queries.
