jamovi 1.0 released!

tl;dr

Today is a huge day for jamovi! version 1.0 is now available! This represents the culmination of thousands of hours of work since our first release in 2017, and one of the most rewarding projects we’ve ever worked on. We’re also acutely conscious of the fact that we could never have made it this far without the belief, the help, bug reports, and feature requests of the broader jamovi community. We really feel quite humbled by the level of support we have received.

To celebrate this significant milestone, We’d like to thank some of the more prominent jamovi contributors

Today we’re introducing ‘Transformed variables’, allowing you to easily recode existing variables and apply transforms across many variables at once.
