Hi all,
This gretl software is God send i must say.
I notice people mentioning things that seem not to work in gretl.
I was wondering how i can update the gretl software that i installed on my laptop with the newer solutions that fixes the problems that people keep mentioning?Should i redownload  or the internet link that sits with the software automatically?

Oops, no, that is not intended. I thought you meant that the series
PC1z was getting over-written, which wouldn't be so bad. Anyway,
this should now be fixed in CVS: we now allow for three rounds of
the alphabet, not just one: from "PC1" to "PC1zzz" or over 17000
