Sympathy for Data v1.1.0-beta3 available!


Sympathy for Data v1.1.0-beta3 is a preview release for the new v.1.1.0 version which introduces major changes under the hood. The platform itself is implemented entirely in Python which makes room for more rapid changes going forward. It introduces no new interfaces and is fully compatible with v1.0.x. Separate installers for Windows are available for 32 and 64 bit installations. The 64 bit version offers significant advantages where memory is concerned.
