Tanagra - Version 1.4.40

Few improvements for this new version.

A new addon for the connection between Tanagra and the recent version of OpenOffice Calc spreadsheet has been created. The old one did not work for recent versions - OpenOffice 3.3 and LibreOffice 3.4. During the installation process, another library was added ("TanagraModule.oxt") to not interfere with the old, still functional for previous versions of Open Office (3.2 and earlier). A tutorial describing its installation and its utilization will be put online soon. I take this opportunity to highlight again how a privileged connection between a spreadsheet and a specialized tool for Data Mining is convenient. The annual poll organized by the kdnuggets.com website shows the interest of this connection (2011, 2010, 2009,...). We note that there is a similar addon for the R software (R4Calc). This change was suggested by Jérémy Roos (OpenOffice) and Franck Thomas (LibreOffice).

The non-standardized ACP is now available. It is possible to implement unchecking the option of standardization of the data in the Principal Component Analysis component. Change suggested by Elvire Antanjan.

Simultaneous regression was introduced. It is very similar to the method programmed into LazStats, which is unfortunately more accessible freely now. The approach is described in a free booklet online "Practice of linear regression analysis" (in French) (section 3.6).

The color codes according to the p-value have been introduced for the Linear Correlation component. Change suggested by Samuel KL.

Once again, thank you very much to all those who help me to improve this work by their comments or suggestions.
