Census 2.0.3 is out

Census 2.0.3 was released last week, but with one thing and another, I've not had the opportunity to update this page until now! This is primarily a bugfix release, and is available for download here, as usual. --Justin Wilkins (talk) 12:07, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

Census 2.0 released

Census 2.0 has been released for for Windows and Mac OS X! Windows and Mac binary installation packages, as well as the source code, are available for download here.

Census 2 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 and post-run processing. The new version is a complete rewrite of Census from the ground up, using free and open source development tools (Lazarus and FPC - more information at http://www.lazarus.freepascal.org). In addition to adding cross-platform support, Census 2 incorporates a number of interface changes, including flexible run tagging and filtering, report output in HTML and LaTeX, a portable database file format (Census databases are now single files, rather than folders), full support for NONMEM 7.2 (including support for multiple estimation steps), and too many others to mention.

It should be noted that Census 2 is a completely new application, and has few links to Census 1.x (which has been put on development hiatus for the time being, owing to time limitations). Also, Census 2 only supports versions of NONMEM that produce XML output, which means that NONMEM V and VI are not supported (although support for them may be added in the future, if there is sufficient interest). Census 2 is, and will remain, free software under the GNU Lesser General Public License, version 3.0. Comments, criticisms, bug reports and suggestions are welcome. If you would like to help with the development of Census 2, please contact me. --Justin Wilkins (talk) 15:19, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

A new website

A new website has been created to host Census 2, which, being a complete cross-platform rewrite of Census 1, deserves one of its own. The old site will continue to exist, but will no longer be updated. I've built it using MediaWiki, which seems as though it's up to the job, but let's see how we go. The idea is to reduce the amount of time maintaining the website takes, so that I can actually spend more time working on the software. In principle. --Justin Wilkins (talk) 14:32, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
