    Hello, just back from pxweb user meeting in Bilbao. New version of Pxweb is planned in January.

    @antagomir
    Great to hear.
    I think this pkg could get a quite high citation count if it was formally published.

    Hi!
    That is great news @janbrus. Is it possible to get some preveiw of what will come in the new version?
    Yes. So I have been sick for three days and then I started to build the core functionality for a version 1.0. Now I'm almost done with a much more robust base structure. So hopefully I'll have a new version in a couple of weeks (especially if I get sick again).
    So maybe Leo you could start to sketch the outline for a paper?

    Måns thanks for the suggestion. I can take some responsibility with the manuscript. I would, however, suggest that we first work through the new version, create a package website (similar to eurostat; I can have the initial look) and make sure that sufficient online documentation is available. All this will greatly help publishing the work in a good venue. We can always go to R Journal (JUFO1) but we could actually try out some JUFO3 journal (PeerJ Computer Science) or I think Journal of Statistical Software etc would work. Will think for a moment. Anyway my suggestions is that let us first polish the package a bit more. This will give very good basis for publishing it.

    Aloha to all, few hours ago I discovered the presentations held in Bilbao last autumn, there are so many news and updates in in the domains statistical databases mostly related to the PX suite.
    Really would like to find out if things moved on and the PX Web 2019 was released.
    @MansMeg @antagomir if you see this message anyhow, please drop a line.

    @antagomir
    Heloo!
    Måns Magnusson
    @MansMeg
    Sure. I do not know what you mean, but we just released a new improved pxweb r package.
    Leo Lahti
    @antagomir
    So amazing things happening indeed.

    @janbrus
    PX WEB 2019 is still in test phase. Release date is not set.
    Måns Magnusson
    @MansMeg
    Ok. Is PXWEB 2019 backward compatible?

    @geolupascu
    Guys, do you know starting what version of PX Web the API functionality was implemented?
    for exporting data , not for importing
    Leo Lahti
    @antagomir
    I hope it is.

    @geolupascu
    I have studied PX web based databanks of national statistics office
    and from 20 of them, only 2 had the JSON availability
    We want to built interactive data visualisations apps
    and I will advise to the offices to upgrade the PX web
    for having API/JSON
    we previously created genderpulse.com
    that is pumping data from a statistical data bank based on PX WEB
    sorry for flooding :)
    Måns Magnusson
    @MansMeg
    Ok. You know this is not the official PXWEB gitter, right? This is the pxweb r package.
    Geo
    @geolupascu
    I did understood that
    but this was the only public connection to a px-web anyhow involved team
    anyway it is good to see that things are going on, I will do an official request about new releases
    Jan Bruusgaard
    @janbrus
    As far as I know 2019 will be backward compatible.
    I am not sure what Geo mean here "only 2 had the JSON availability". In PX-web there are two JSON output formats. JSON-stat is the format that is best suited for statstics.
    Måns Magnusson
    @MansMeg
    Thats great, I saw something about a version 2 API that did not look very back-compatible to me. But that may be a later version.
    Jan Bruusgaard
    @janbrus
    Version 2 of the API is not part of 2019 Pxweb, and is not backwards compatible. As I understand the plan, PxWeb will have the possibility to offer both version 1 and 2 at the same time.
    Jan Bruusgaard
    @janbrus
    Px-web 2019 is now released by SCB, but then it is up to each agency to upgrade to the new version.

    Hi Måns
    Måns Magnusson
    @MansMeg
    H!
    Leo Lahti
    @antagomir
    Hi!
    OK I managed to sync master and overleaf.
    Måns Magnusson
    @MansMeg
    Cool!
    Leo Lahti
    @antagomir
    Now the file that you should modify is magnusson-kainu-lahti.tex
    (./paper/ dir)
    Now paper/README.md tells how this converts to PDF
    there are other ways too of course.
    I may also work on overleaf now as we got this working but let us do regular pushes to github in order to keep things in sync
    I am talking to Markus about his schedules, otherwise I think the plan is pretty clear.
    You should add PO Box info in the affiliation, I think this was required by the journals.
    Måns Magnusson
    @MansMeg
    Ok. So I think I can try to sync from Overleaf, when I write there.
