* New ``--write_log``, ``--write_unknown_vars``, ``--write_icd10_map``,
  ``--write_description``, and ``--write_summary`` options, which will save
  the respective auxillary output file using a default naming convention which
  is based on the name of the main output file. Exact names can still be
  specified via the ``--log_file``, ``--unknown_vars_file``,
  ``--icd10_map_file``, ``--description_file``, and ``--summary_file``
  options.

* New ``fillval`` option to the :func:`.binariseCategorical` processing
  function, which can be used in conjunction with ``take``, to specify the
  fill value for missing rows.
* Argument **broadcasting** for processing functions - when a process is
  applied independently to more than one variable, the input arguments to the
  process may need to be different for each variable. This can be accomplished
  by using a _broadcast_ argument - simply prefix the argument name with
  ``'broadcast_'``, and then specify a list containing the argument.
* Processing functions can now be passed lists of values.

* The data import stage is parallelised by using multiple processes to read
  different chunks of the input file(s), and then concatenating the resulting
  ``pandas.DataFrame`` objects afterwards.
* Cleaning functions are executed on each variable in parallel.
* Each processing step is executed in parallel where possible
  (e.g. ``independent`` processes), but processing steps are still executed
  sequentially.  New columns created by processing functions are saved to
  disk, and re-loaded by the main process, rather than being passed back to
  the main process via inter-process communication.
* The ``removeIfRedundant`` process now compares pairs of columns in parallel.
* The data export stage is parallelised by writing chunks of rows to different
  files, and then concatenating them into a single output file afterwards.

  bad/unparseable values). This option improves import performance, but at the
  cost of causing FUNPACK to crash if the assumption is not true.

1.4.0 (Sunday 7th July 2019
---------------------------


Added
^^^^^


* Added a new ``InternalType`` column to the variable table, which can be used
  to specify the type to use internally for a given variable
  (e.g. ``float64``).  This is so that the default type of ``float32`` can be
  overridden for specific variables for which this is problematic, such as
  variable :ref:`20003
  <https://biobank.ctsu.ox.ac.uk/crystal/field.cgi?id=20003>`_. This column is
  initially populated from ``funpack/data/type.txt``.
* New :mod:`funpack.coding` module, for retrieving descriptive information
  about data codings. The information is stored in the
  ``funpack/data/coding/``directory.  Hierarchical data codings are still
  accessed via the :mod:`.hierarchy` module.
* New :func:`hierarchicalDescriptionFromCode`,
  :func:`hierarchicalDescriptionFromNumeric`, and
  :func:`codingDescriptionFromValue` metaprocessing functions.



Changed
^^^^^^^

* The hierarchical coding name no longer needs to be specified when using the
  :func:`.codeToNumeric` cleaning function - the coding is automatically looked
  up.
* Variable 4288 has been moved from ``cognitive phenotypes`` to
  ``miscellaneous`` in the FMRIB categories.
* Variable 20003 is now binarised in the FMRIB categories.
* Changed the meta-processing function signature - these functions are now
  passed the :class:`.DataTable` and variable ID, in addition the value.


Fixed
^^^^^


* Now using an internal type of ``float64`` for variable 20003, as it
  potentially has values which cannot be represented in ``float32``.


Deprecated
^^^^^^^^^^


* Deprecated the `xDescriptionFromCode` and `xDescriptionFromNumeric`
  metaprocessing functions.

* Full variable and datacoding table files no longer need to be provided -
  ``ukbparse`` uses ``ukbparse/data/field.txt`` and
  ``ukbparse/data/encoding.txt`` files, obtained from the UK Biobank showcase
  website, as the basis for recognising variables and data codings. The
  ``--variable_file``/``-vf`` and ``--datacoding_file``/``-df`` options now
  accept partial table definitions - these will be merged with the built-in
  rules (still stored in ``ukbparse/data/variables_*.tsv`` and
  ``ukbparse/data/datacodings_*.tsv``) when ``ukbparse`` is invoked.
