  9. 9. Q&A What happens now to CalXL? CalXL is no longer planned as a separate product. We’ve moved the majority of CalXL functions to NumXL 1.56, and we plan to move the remaining ones in future releases. Why? From our users’ perspective, they need holidays functionality to examine/adjust for holiday/trading days bias in the analysis. From our perspective, merging the two together saves us time and resources and makes our product more valuable to our users.www.spiderfinancial.com
  10. 10. Q&A – Cont’d What’s to come next? With respect to Date and Calendar functions: 1. New holidays and calendar definitions 2. Support for economics data events (e.g. employment numbers, etc.) How can I help?
