This version of LTPDA is 2.8. This document lists the changes since V2.7.1.

This version requires MATLAB 2011a or above.

Known Issues

On Mac OS X versions which use java 1.7 (on newer versions of MATLAB) there is an issue with the LTPDAprefs GUI when selecting paths of extension modules. There is a bug in the underlying java file-chooser widget which means there is an ‘Open’ button instead of a ‘Choose’ button. The result is that you can’t select a directory but must, instead, select a file (for example the .xml file in the extension) then delete the filename from the path before pressing the + button to add the extension.

Main Changes

This version of LTPDA contains many under-the-hood improvements, particularly in the area of speed, and also some changes to the underlying data structures for analysis objects.

In addition, a number of deprecated GUI tools (including the workbench) have been removed from this version. These have been unsupported for a few versions now, and continued maintenance is no longer possible. The user manual, and in particular, the training sessions, have been updated to reflect this. Some of the functionality pertaining to the repository interaction, has been grouped together into a single GUI called LTPDARepositoryQuery.
