Comment from Michael Baudin -- January 31, 2013, 09:28:42 PM    
Here is the changelog of the v2.0:

    * Removed std function: use Scilab's stdev instead.
To update your code, please use the following rules.
If A is a row or column vector, then replace std(A) with stdev(A).
If A is a matrix, then replace std(A) with stdev(A,"r") :

 A  =
    1.    2.     10.   
    7.    7.1    7.01  
 ans  =
    4.2426407    3.6062446    2.1142493  
 ans  =
    4.2426407    3.6062446    2.1142493  
    * Removed unnecessary requirement on Scilab 5.4.
    * Removed bincoef function: use specfun_nchoosek instead.
To update your code, please install the specfun module:


and replace 




Notice that N and n are exchanged.
    * Updated the unit tests to use assert functions.
    * Removed the following functions:

Probability Distribution Functions: 
dbeta, dbinom, dchisq, df, dgamma, dhypg, dnorm, dt
Probability Cumulative Distribution Functions
pbeta, pbinom, pchisq, pf, pgamma, phypg, pnorm, pt
Inverse Cumulative Distribution Functions
qbeta, qbinom, qchisq, qf, qgamma, qhypg, qnorm, qt
Random Numbers
rbeta, rbinom, rchisq, rf, rgamma, rgeom, rhypg, rnorm, rpoiss, rt
Reject Methods
rjbinom, rjgamma, rjpoiss

      Users should use the distfun module for Scilab.
      To install it, type:


      This has been decided for the following reasons :
      * Stixbox's distribution have known bugs, but no 
        known maintainer to fix them.
      * distfun is compatible with Matlab.
      * distfun has more tests.
      * distfun has more help pages and examples.
      * distfun has more consistent functions.
      * distfun's distributions are vectorized (and fast).
    * The previous change automatically fixes the following bugs.
