I changed the language in Gretl to Spanish to teach a course. I realized
that in the editor window (GUI) for graphs there are no lines and arrows
options. I tested the same in Catalan and Galician. This is on purpose or a

Dear User-list Members,
I am writing to inform you that the “ridge” package is going to be
removed from our package server today. This package was written by Sven
and me but got superseded by the “regls” addon written by Allin.
This includes the ridge estimator including cross-validation for
hyper-parameter optimization and will soon include a matrix-based
version as well.
The archived "ridge" package and its source code can still be found on
Github at https://github.com/atecon/ridge; simply navigate to the src
folder for access to its gfn file.
We hope this information helps! Thank you for being part of our user
list community and please don't hesitate reach out if you have any other
questions or concerns regarding this update or anything else related!
with latest Ubuntu 23.04 I experience a problem trying to compile gretl.
I obtain the error
LaTeX Font Warning: Font shape `TS1/aer/m/n' undefined
(Font) using `TS1/cmr/m/n' instead
Apparently some font (shape) is not available on the system.
I already have installed the packages
but this does not help.
Does anybody have hint what to do? On google I cannot find anything useful.
And especially Jack.
I found a very nice example of you in my archive for what you call a
double density plot:
There you merge the matrices d1 and d2 to a single one before plotting.
I would like to generalize this for k matrices but do not find a clever way.
Has anybody an idea?

I disagree. The problem is not related to dummy variables _per se_; the
problem comes from the possibility that the Z matrix may not be full-rank
in a given subset.
I've tried a quick fix, but unfortunately, it's not general enough. I'll
be unable to get any more work done over the weekend; I'll see what I can
do next week, unless somebody beats me to it ;)

I regret to inform you that the gretl package "pmbb" for doing Moving
Blocks Bootstrap (MBB) for linear panels has been removed from the
This is due to a potential bug in the package. We can't say when we find
time to work at it to fix the bug.
In the meantime, if you would like access to its source code, please
visit https://github.com/atecon/pmbb . We would be grateful if anyone
could assist us in detecting any errors present in its source code so we
can return this package back into circulation quickly and safely!
Thank you very much for your understanding and support.
