Changes and Enhancements to SAS/ETS Software in Versions 7 and 8

Overview

This chapter summarizes the enhancements to SAS/ETS software made since the publication of SAS/ETS Software: Changes and Enhancements for Release 6.12. All of these changes and enhancements are incorporated into the individual procedure chapters and are described in greater detail.

Version 7 of SAS/ETS software contains enhancements to several procedures, a new data access engine for FAME databases, and incorporation of the new Output Delivery System for all procedures. Additionally, the OUTEST data sets in iterative SAS/ETS procedures now contain the variable _STATUS_ to report on the convergence status of the estimation.

[V8] Information about changes and enhancements that were implemented in Version 8 is preceded by the Version 8 icon. All other changes and enhancements described in this section were implemented in Version 7. In other words, if your site upgraded directly from Version 6 to Version 8, then all of the changes and enhancements described here are new to you. If you upgraded from Version 7 to Version 8, then only the items preceded by the Version 8 icon are new to you.
