I just signed up for this list a day or two ago. I had been under the impression that PSPP stopped improving years ago. It's good to see it's still active. One way to get the word out would be to post notices of new features regularly on SPSSX-L. If PSPP reads SAS or R files, posting occasional messages on those lists would also help advertise it.
