The new preview version 0.9.x of Adele is available for download at the sourceforge project site. The main new feature of this version is the builtin OLAP functionality. All flat datasets can be calculated and explored in the multi dimensional way without long time of waiting and transformating. This can be very useful to understand the data.
This new version includes some optimizations for dataset handling and usability. For example filtered and items in context will be displayed through special symbols. The clipboard will be supported for additional export and import operations. It is now possible to import mappings for a column by a code/meaning mapping given by the clipboard.
A very useful feature is an anonymization option while importing data via clipboard or file. You can anonymize your data and give it without risk to other people. The anonymization will be enhanced in the future versions.
Further plans for the next versions are:
– split dataset view for analyzing data
– graphical vizualization for OLAP cubes
– further vizualizations.
