Changes in version 1.1 (2017-07-17)
Changes in version 1.0 (2017-03-03)
added registration of native routines (in reaction to recent CRAN check notes), thereby fixing wrong (lower case) PACKAGE argument (reported by Kurt Hornik).
changed sample size in example of pearsonMSC in order to reduce run-time.
Changes in version 0.98 (2016-06-06)
replaced CHANGES with NEWS (and using corresponding markup).
added many importFrom directives to NAMESPACE and replaced calls to require with calls to requireNamespace (as suggested by package CHECK).
removed CITATION file (which would be equal to default citation info).
Changes in version 0.97 (2013-11-20)
Changes in version 0.96 (2013-10-02)
dispensable file 'LICENSE' removed (due to check NOTE).
dispensable use of ':::' removed (due to check NOTE).
Changes in version 0.95 (2013-01-11)
Changes in version 0.94 (2012-09-25)
ensure that functions to be minimized by nlminb do not return NA or NaN any more (by replacing NA/NaN results with +Inf) because nlminb does not work reliably with NA/NaN function values. (Many thanks to Prof Brian Ripley for pointing this out)
bug fix of pearsonDiagram (for max.skewness>=32 [squared.skewness=TRUE] and max.skewnewss>=sqrt(32) [squared.skewness=FALSE])
Changes in version 0.93 (2012-04-02)
caching of package gsl's availability status removed, because using 'installed.packages' or 'require' in .onAttach should be avoided (as NOTEd in check results since [about] R-2.15.0). Slow down should be negligible.
correction of link to Heinrich's working paper
Changes in version 0.92 (2010-04-23)
NAs and NaNs were not handled properly in ppearsonIV and qpearsonIV
(documentation) bug fix: typo in the density function for Pearson type VI (only pdf-manual) many thanks to Young Hwa Sung for reporting the typo!
