0.20.0 (Tuesday 7th May 2019)
-----------------------------


Added
^^^^^


* The :func:`.isSparse` and :func:`.removeIfSparse` functions accept
  a new option, ``mincat``, which allows a categorical to be deemed sparse
  if the size of its smallest category is below a given threshold.

* New ``--description_file`` option which, for UK BioBank data, saves the
  description for each column to a text file.

Changed
^^^^^^^


* The ``absolute`` parameter to the :func:`.isSparse` and
  :func:`.removeIfSparse` functions is deprecated. Instead, they now accept
  ``abspres`` and ``abscat`` arguments, allowing the
  absoluteness/proportionality of the ``minpres`` and ``mincat``/``maxcat``
  options to be specified separately.
* Changed default processing rules so that ICD10 variables undergo a slightly
  different sparsity test.

  40006, 41202, and 41204.

----------------------------------


Added
^^^^^


* The ``--column`` option now accepts a file which contains a list of column
  names to import.


Changed
^^^^^^^


* The :func:`.icd10.codeToNumeric` and :func:`.icd10.numericToCode` functions
  have been changed to use the integer node IDs in the ICD10 hierarchy
  file. The previous approach could not handle parent categories, nor a small
  number of ICD10 codes which do not have a ``<letter><number>`` structure.
* The :func:`.fileinfo.has_header` function has been made more lenient for
  files with a small number of columns.

0.16.0 (Friday 22nd March 2019)
-------------------------------


Changed
^^^^^^^


* 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.


Deprecated
^^^^^^^^^^


* The ``ukbparse_htmlparse``, ``ukbparse_join`` , and
  ``ukbparse_compare_tables`` commands.

Added
^^^^^


* Ability to export a mapping file containing the numeric values that ICD10
  codes have been converted into - see the ``--icd10_map_file`` argument.


Changed
^^^^^^^


* Changes to default processing - all ICD10 variables are binarised by default.
  Sparsity/redundancy tests happen at the end, so that columns generated by
  previous steps are tested.


Fixed
^^^^^


* :meth:`.HDFStoreCollection.loc` method returns a ``pandas.DataFrame`` when
  a list of columns are indexed, and a ``pandas.Series`` when a single column
  is indexed.

  (i.e. `UKBiobank variable 3066
  <https://biobank.ctsu.ox.ac.uk/crystal/field.cgi?id=3066>`_


Removed
^^^^^^^


* Removed the ``--disable_rename`` command line option, because having the
  columns renamed is really annoying.

  is larger than the number of samples in the data set.
