OriginLab Releases Origin 2016 Data Analysis and Graphing Software

Latest version of the award-winning software introduces Apps, a new Color Chooser, Smart Plotting with Cloneable Graph Templates, Batch Analysis by Cloning Active Workbook and Batch Reports using Microsoft® Word templates


Northampton, Massachusetts (Oct. 27, 2015) OriginLab, a leading publisher of data analysis and graphing software, today announced the release of Origin® and OriginPro 2016. Origin is an award-winning software application for data analysis and publication-quality graphing, tailored to the needs of scientists and engineers. OriginPro offers all of the features of Origin plus extended analysis tools.

Notable among the new features and enhancements in Origin and OriginPro 2016 are Apps in Origin to add specific graphing and analysis functionality; a new and powerful Color Chooser; Smart Plotting with Cloneable Templates to quickly create multi-layer graphs with complex mapping of data plots to worksheet columns; Batch Analysis by cloning current workbook during multi-file import; professional reports from Batch Analysis using Microsoft® Word templates; a dockable Object Manager window to manage layers and data plots in a graph; and an improved dialog to send graphs to Microsoft PowerPoint.

Dr. C.P. Yang, founder and CEO, OriginLab, said, "We are excited to introduce Apps in Origin. As a mature product, accumulating over 20 years of user feedback on Origin, it gets to a point where introduction of new features is often lost amid the ocean of existing features. Customers frequently tell us that they use just five percent of the software. Going forward, OriginLab can put standalone features into Apps, so users can decide what features they need to add to their Origin installation. Apps can be updated independently, so bug fixes for Apps can be timely as there will no longer be the need to wait for another version of Origin. Apps are also more visible as they are managed on our File Exchange website. Apps can also be developed by the Origin user community."

Additional new features in Origin and OriginPro 2016 include tab-based dialogs for common analysis tools, easier customization of annotation labels, skip weekends and holidays in financial plots, R Console and Rserve support to connect with R software, and Three-way ANOVA and Partial Correlation in OriginPro.
