Yes, the "old" treatment of missing values in a gdtb save means it uses
the definition of NA in gretl < 2018c, while the "new" (now more than 2
years old) version uses NaN. The only reason to use the old version is
if you want the file to be readable by gretl 2018b or earlier. It may be
about time to retire that option?
Yes, what about first thing after release?
