module orngSOM

I am new to Orange, and I am interested in its implementation of SOMs. I keep seeing references to a module orngSOM in the documentation, but when I try to import it on the latest version (1.02b), it seems to not be available.

Sory for the long wait.
The orngSOM module was removed from the 1.x versions, but it's reimplementation is currently present in the daily Qt4 snapshots.

there's a problem with random initialization in SOM.
I paste here what I get. The error is not present with linear initialization.

In [1]: import orange

In [2]: import orngSOM

In [3]: som = orngSOM.SOMLearner(map_shape=(10, 20), initialize=orngSOM.InitializeRandom)

In [4]: map = som(orange.ExampleTable(""))

Can you update from svn. I think it should work now.
