Change Logs

* Thu Feb 22 2018
- Switched build to Qt5 for TW and Leap 15
* Thu Aug 04 2016
- Add gsl2-support.patch to fix build with GSL-2.x
* Mon Aug 24 2015
- Require correct libnetcdf version.
* Tue Jul 29 2014
- Build with MAT files support
* Mon Jul 21 2014
- Update to 2.0.8
  1) Data sources
  * A new datasource: sourcelist, which is a successive list of otherwise identical datasources
  * Another new datasource: FITS tables, contributed by a new contributor: Nicholas Chapman. Welcome!
  * ASCII improved once again to support huge files (>8 GB!)
  * Add option how empty ASCII columns should be handled (NaN, copy previous, interpolate)
  * Improve ASCII config dialog layout
  * Handle data sources which are temporarily typed into the data source selector,
    but which are not actually used and when a data source is deleted, delete its slave primitives as well
  2) Main new features
  * Thanks to the awesome job done by the KDE internationalization team, Kst 2.0.8 is now available in the following   languages: ca ca@valencia de en_GB fr nl pl pt pt_BR sv uk. Kst will default to using the system language, if available. To override this, launch with e.g. "LANG=en ./kst2"
  * A progress bar appears when parsing large ASCII files, very nice when it takes long with huge files!
  * Reworked view vector values allowing easy comparison of vectors and changing the number of digits shown - a first step towards a more table-centric view as in other plotting tools
  * Add filtering to the data manager to allow finding items easily in complex sessions
  * Add an "unwind" filter: for data fields that have wrapped. For example, an angle (0-360 degrees) which has rotated several times
  * New plugin to compute the "activity level" of a signal as the product of standard deviation and number of reversals over a sliding window.
  3) Misc. improvements
  * Scripting: major rework underway - still ongoing. Hopefully Python scripting will be supported under Windows as well in the next version
  * Add a -T command line option which creates a new tab
  * Equations: add 'degree' versions of the trig functions: sind, cosd, etc as well as atan2(x,y)
  * Avoid having to type * before/after the text in the editmultiple widget
  * HOWTO explaining how to add a plugin
  * Improvements to use the whole available space in the scalar/vector/matrix/string selectors
  * To reduce the impact of latent/glitchy file system situations, delay reloading a file which looks like it has shrunk
  * Use "Spectrogram" instead of "CSD"
  * Option to use the "native" Qt graphics system if "use raster" is not selected (native works far better for remote X)
  4) Bug fixes
  * Scalar selector improvements
  * Many improvements in the update system and propagation of data source configuration changes
  * Solve wrong vector selection in shift and differentiation plugins (kde#325393)
  * Fix annoying bug breaking the recent data file and session lists (kde#325086)
  * Only reset starting frame to skip boundry if in count from end mode -> allow selecting the right subsamples when using skip in other cases
  * Various fixes to ASCII configuration to ensure that we don't parse the whole file when we only want to change the settings
  * Make sure custom color applies to all lines of a multi line text label
  * Don't crash when there is an exception while searching for rows
  * Some improvements to defaults in filter plugins
  * Fix enabling/disabling widgets in FFT options (kde#328371)
  * In datawizard, don't create plots if no curves (kde#307723)
  * Update curve names in plot dialog when changed (kde#318139)
- Remove the python subpackage as this is still under development
  and should not be build according to upstream.
* Thu Jul 18 2013
- Update to 2.0.7
  * Automatic formatting of X axis time display from the datawizard when reading string-formatted time
  * More speed for files with very many columns
  * Scripting: major rework adding support for histograms, spectrums and plugins
  * Allow the x and y plot labels to be changed from the command line
  * Fix a bug where if you drag a plot to a new tab, it wasn't picked up by future autoformat actions nor listed in plot lists
  * Cumulative sum plugin now returns a vector of the same size as the input vector
  * Fix toggling tied zoom
  * Save/reload "automatically scale number axis" setting in plots.
  * Fix regression in which re-scaling font sizes when adding plots didn't work.
  * Fix gaussian + Lorentzian fits so that they actually fit
  * Respect dialog defaults and curve properties for point density.
  * Restore proper behavior of font scaling when adding plots to tabs
* Fri Mar 15 2013
- Change desktop menu category to Science
* Mon Jul 30 2012
- Update to 2.0.6, for a complete list of changes see
  * When loading a kst file, prompt the user for an alternate if a
    datasource can't be found
  * Save/use arrow head property defaults
  * Don't invert Z order of viewItems which are direct children of
    the View
  * Data wizard fixes (spectrum format, speed improvements when
    there are many vectors,
  * Properly handle missing data in custom-delimited ASCII to avoid
    mixing the vectors
  * Large speedup (x10!) for ASCII with very many columns
  * Allow SVG and pixmap view objects to have adjustable aspect ratios
  * Fix apply button in view item dialogs (including labels)
- Build python-kst for scripting
* Fri Jun 29 2012
- BuildRequire libnetcdf_c++-devel after the package split
* Mon May 21 2012
- Update to 2.0.5
  * Data-fixed annotation objects (e.g. text and arrows which
    scroll along with the curves)
  * Support for Matlab's .mat file format for strigns, matrices,
    vectors and scalars
  * Beta version of python scripting (on Linux only for now,
    depending on NumPy 1.6 and SciPy and requiring .py and .pyc
    files installed in the right place). See documentation at and don't hesitate to ask
    for help on the mailing list as this feature is still in
    beta stage
  * Drag & Drop support: simply drop a .kst file onto Kst and it
    will open, if you drop any data file it will open in the data
  * Improved printing to vector formats (printer, PDF, SVG)
  * Optional antialiasing (may be slow on some systems)

    shared axis boxes. See detailed changelog at

  * UI and usability improvements: for instance you can now just
    double-click on labels or axes to open the corresponding dialog
  * The introduction of a Settings->Theme dialog which sets brush,
    stroke, and font for all view items, optionally applying to all
    existing objects, and/or saving as the default for all future
