2013 .... .NET version using 32/64 bit creating a 4x increase in speed

2012 .... Can we make the month end number? A report added showing a table of probabilities to interpolate from

Added Variance Change Detection Report highlighting where the variance changed

Added Parameter Change Detection Report highlighting where the parameters had changed

3)Forecast Monitoring Report compares the Autobox forecast vs a simple method to check that Autobox has a reasonable forecast

2011 .... Added ability to read and write directly to Excel files in Batch version for univariate problems

2010 .... Added Five Exception Reports to the Batch System

1)Trend Report highlighting where a trend has occurred in history

2)Level Shift Report highlighting where a level shift has occurred in history

3)Forecast Monitoring Report compares the Autobox forecast vs a simple method to check that Autobox has a reasonable forecast

4)Forecasting Fit Exception Report compares the Fitted MAPE for the Autobox model vs a naive and mean model to check that Autobox has built a reasonable model

5)Measuring Accuracy(MAPE) by Withholding Observations allows users to track what the forecast accruacy would have been by withholding observations one by one and rerunning Autobox

Added "Dynamic Promotion Response" where Promotion has big impact and then decays over time
