kotlin-statistics v1.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2017-10-29 // about 4 years ago
  • ๐Ÿš€ I'm excited to announce that I've settled on a base set of features and released Kotlin-Statistics 1.0. There have been some major refactorings from the pre-1.0 versions.

    • Maven artifact is now called kotlin-statistics, not kotlinstatistics
    • Most operators have been consolidated to target Number, rather than overloads for every numeric input type.
    • ๐Ÿ‘€ Many higher order function parameters have been renamed. Please see README for examples.
    • โœ… Unit tests have been written for approximately 96% of the codebase.

    I've decided to focus this library primarily on statistics, and steer away from linear algebra and other data science tasks. There are a few exceptions I've decided to keep, such as clustering and linear regression. I'll conservatively expand on these non-statistical features possibly, but I may spin off other projects.

    ๐Ÿ‘€ If you have any ideas, please contribute and I'll be happy to consider adding features. Thank you for the enthusiastic support and usage of this library. What started as an experiment to see if Kotlin could be idiomatic for analytical tasks ended up becoming much more than I anticipated. I hope these patterns continue to gain traction and help make Kotlin a platform for data science.
