Bug introduced in 10.2.0 and fixed in 10.3.0

(The extension of AssociationThread is not (yet) implemented and the corresponding documentation has been removed)


Is this another case of "documented" but "not implemented" ? or at least it is not explained clearly as I cannot make it work:

Two new forms appears in the new 10.2 doc. of AssociationThread (the last two ones below):

enter image description here

which forms, for comparison, are not present in 10.0 or 10.1 docs. However, there is no "updated" sign anywhere (no "UPDATE (show changes)" icon and the page footer only mentions "introduced in 2014 (10.0)".

Also, the new templates forms can be accessed through the "Make Template" menu/shortcut:

enter image description here

But I didn't manage to get the new forms to work at all, I only get error messages strongly indicating that these forms have actually not been implemented.

For example:

New form 1

AssociationThread[{"A", "B", "C"}, {{1, 2, 3}, {4, 5, 6}}, 2]
AssociationThread[{"A", "B", "C"}, whateverYouPutHere, orHere]

returns

enter image description here

New form 2

AssociationThread[{"A", "B", "C"}][{1, 2, 3}]
AssociationThread[{"A", "B", "C"}]@{1, 2, 3}

returns

  • $\begingroup$ I would report to support@wolfram.com as a bug. Either the docs or the function is wrong. $\endgroup$ – chuy Jul 23 '15 at 13:32

    $\begingroup$ So we will get a non-beta-version 10.2.1 soon? $\endgroup$ – Rolf Mertig Jul 23 '15 at 14:30

    $\begingroup$ It's already been reported as a bug internally. The documentation is wrong, this is not yet implemented. $\endgroup$ – ilian Jul 23 '15 at 14:38

    $\begingroup$ As Ilian mentions, this is a documentation bug. An extension of AssociationThread is planned for the future, but this documentation should not have been in the product. Note that AssociationThread is not mentioned in the "what's new" page, guide/SummaryOfNewFeaturesIn102. $\endgroup$ – Stefan R Jul 23 '15 at 14:48
