Bayesian analysis of luminescence data and C-14 age estimates. Bayesian models are based on the following publications: Combes, B. & Philippe, A. (2017)

`plot_Ages()`

this function replaces code used internally by the functions`AgeC14_Compution()`

and`AgeS_Computation()`

to create an age overview plot. Before the user had no control over the appearance of age plot output. This is still the case if the functions`AgeC14_Compution()`

,`AgeS_Computation()`

and`Age_OSLC14()`

are used (although internally only the function`plot_Ages()`

is called), however, both functions now return a new list of class`BayLum.list`

which is recognised by the function`plot_Ages()`

and can be used to plot the typical age plot while providing several arguments for adjusting the plot output.

- The newly introduced function combine_DataFiles() did not work on R < 3.5.0, which caused an error on CRAN; fixed.
- The function
`ScatterSamples()`

is replaced by the function`plot_Scatterplots()`

- All computation functions left text connections open after they have been exited; fixed.
- The output of
`AgeC14_Compution()`

and`AgeS_Computation()`

gain a new class`BayLum.list`

- Redundant code in
`AgeC14_Compution()`

and`AgeS_Computation()`

has been removed - The argument
`Nb_chaines`

was replaced by`n.chains`

wherever it occured in the package (functions and documentation) - The function
`plot_Scatterplots()`

gained a new argument`plot_type`

, allowing to switch between the default hexbin plot and a function developed for 'BayLum`(`

plot_type = "smoothScatter"`) - The function
`plot_Scatterplots()`

gained a new argument`plot_mode`

to allow single xy plots - The function
`plot_Scatterplots()`

now accepts a two column`data.frame`

as inputbuild

- Add new package dependency
`KernSmooth`

used in`plot_Scatterplots()`

- The function
`MCMC_plot()`

was replaced by the newly written function`plot_MCMC()`

- The function
`Concat_DataFile()`

is deprecated and is basically replaced by the function`combine_DataFiles()`

- The functions
`AgeC14_Compution()`

and`Age_OSL14()`

now returns age results with two digits - The function
`AgeS_Computation()`

now returns the MCMC information from all samples of the PDF output is set to`TRUE`

- The function
`Age_OSLC14()`

never returned numerical data; fixed - Fix
`Age_OSLC14()`

age format, now in ka for C-14 instead of years - The last example in
`AgeS_Computation()`

could not be run; fixed - C-14 calibration datasets now show data in 'ka' and not 'a'
- Various typo corrections.

- Allow different BIN/BINX-file names as input. The functions
`Generate_DataFile()`

and`Generate_DataFile_MG()`

do no longer expecting the name sheme bin.BIN - The functions
`Generate_DataFile()`

and`Generate_DataFile_MG()`

now supports the`...`

argument to pass further arguments to the function`Luminescene::read_BIN2R()`

- The functions
`Generate_DataFile()`

and`Generate_DataFile_MG()`

gained a new argument`verbose`

to control the terminal output - The function
`Age_Computation()`

,`AgeS_Computation()`

,`AgeC14_Computation()`

,`Age_OSLC14()`

now support the argument`quiet`

and pipe it to`rjags`

to suppress the terminal output - The function
`AgeC14_Computation()`

now returns a warning if outliers are detected. - The function
`LT_RegenDose()`

gained two new arguments`nrow`

and`ncol`

became a little bit more user friendly

- Set patch level to 0 (for 3.3.0) to account for CRAN note
- Vignette was updated and corrected

- Reduce required R version to 3.3.2

- Initial version on CRAN
