The SAS 9.2 Base new features, language elements, and enhancements to the language elements continue to expand the capabilities of SAS:
SAS now supports the next generation Internet Protocol, IPv6, as well as IPv4.
The DATA step component Java object enables instantiation of Java classes and accessing fields and methods on resultant objects.The SAS logging facility is a new logging subsystem that can be used to collect, categorize, and filter log events and write them to various output devices. The logging facility can be used to log SAS server events or events that are initiated from SAS programs. This feature is new for SAS 9.2 Phase 2.
In addition to SAS Monospace and SAS Monospace Bold TrueType fonts, new TrueType fonts are available when you install SAS.
Universal Printing now supports Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), Portable Network Graphics (PNG), and PDFA-1b print output formats.
You can access remote files by using the Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) access method.
SAS now reads and writes ISO 8601 dates, time, and intervals.
In support of batch programming, if a program terminates without completion, the new checkpoint mode enables programs to be resubmitted in restart mode, resuming with the DATA or PROC step that was executing when the program terminated.
In the “Functions and CALL Routines” section there are several new and enhanced functions as well as functions that were previously in other products and that are now part of Base SAS. The functions that moved from the Risk Dimensions product calculate the call and put prices from European options on futures, based on various models. The functions that moved from SAS/ETS return information about various date and time intervals. The functions from SAS High-Performance Forecasting return specific dates.
The documentation for string functions and CALL routines now has a restriction that identifies whether theses functions and CALL routines support Single Byte Character Sets (SBCS), Double Byte Character Sets (DBCS), or Multi-Byte Character Sets (MBCS). This distinction is important because improper use of these functions and CALL routines can result in unexpected behavior in programs that are written in a non-English language. The description for the restrictions is located in the Function Compatibility with DBCS, MBCS, and SBCS Character Sets section of the documentation.
In a DATA step, you can track the execution of code within a DO group. The DATA statement has an optional argument for you to write a note to the SAS log when the DO statement begins and ends.
New SAS system options enable you to set a default record length, specify options for accessing PDF files, specify values for Scalable Vector Graphics, support the checkpoint mode and the restart mode, and support fonts.
Some of the new features for the DATA step object attributes, operators, and methods remove all items from the hash object without deleting the instance of the hash object, consolidate the FIND and ADD methods into a single method call, return the number of items in the hash object, and specifies a starting key item for iteration.
In previous versions of SAS Language Reference: Dictionary, references to language elements in other publications were included in their respective dictionary for each language element type. For example, you could find a reference for the $BIDI format in the format dictionary entries. You can now find references to language elements that are documented in other publications within each section for the language element types. Online, this section appears just before the dictionary entries for each language element type. In the PDF or print copy, this section appears as the last topic for each language element type.
A section that describes how SAS syntax is written has been added. This section contains examples of how to interpret the syntax.

This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-conference proceedings of the 4th International Workshop on Agents and Data Mining Interaction, ADMI 2009, held in Budapest, Hungary in May 10-15, 2009 as an associated event of AAMAS 2009, the 8th International Joint Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems.
The 12 revised papers and 2 invited talks presented were carefully reviewed and selected from numerous submissions. Organized in topical sections on agent-driven data mining, data mining driven agents, and agent mining applications, the papers show the exploiting of agent-driven data mining and the resolving of critical data mining problems in theory and practice; how to improve data mining-driven agents, and how data mining can strengthen agent intelligence in research and practical applications. Subjects that are also addressed are exploring the integration of agents and data mining towards a super-intelligent information processing and systems, and identifying challenges and directions for future research on the synergy between agents and data mining.

A Software Process Model Handbook for Incorporating People’s Capabilities offers the most advanced approach to date, empirically validated at software development organizations. This handbook adds a valuable contribution to the much-needed literature on people-related aspects in software engineering. The primary focus is on the particular challenge of extending software process definitions to more explicitly address people-related considerations.
The capability concept is not present nor has it been considered in most software process models. The authors have developed a capabilities-oriented software process model, which has been formalized in UML and implemented as a tool. A Software Process Model Handbook for Incorporating People’s Capabilities guides readers through the incorporation of the individual's capabilities into the software process.
Structured to meet the needs of research scientists and graduate-level students in computer science and engineering, this book is also suitable for practitioners in industry.

IPv6, Internet Protocol Version 6, is the next-generation internet protocol designed by the IETF to replace the current IPv4, now nearly 20 years old. As the new IPv6 protocol replaces IPv4, professionals need a practical and detailed reference and introduction that explains the new capabilities and changes. Especially since new and modified features and integration of additional protocols underpin IPv6, a well-organized overview becomes even vital. Here readers find a full explanation of what they need to know to function optimally in the new environment. Based on the latest IETF meetings, Understanding IPv6 provides not only the basics but details on transition and optimization mechanisms, modifications in DNS, mobile IPv6, and security issues. In addition, Understanding IPv6 explains each topic based on the latest IETF published documents and: Compares IPv6 and IPv4, e.g., crucial aspects such as protocol and addressing architecture, expanded address features, modifications of DNS, and header formats. Clarifies the many related protocols that need to be mastered in optimizing IPv6, plus core features such as neighbor discovery, address autoconfiguration, and DHCPv6. Details internetworking mechanisms and mobility services with many examples and figures. Devotes full coverage to transition mechanisms, especially Teredo. Understanding IPv6 is a reference work for graduate level students, communications engineers and researchers.

Since the first symposium in 1984 the International Symposia on Spatial Data Handling (SDH) has become a major resource for recent advances in GIS research. The International Symposium on Spatial Data Handling is regarded as a premier international research forum for GIS. All papers are fully reviewed by an international program committee composed of experts in the field.
