crimelinkage 0.0.4 (09/18/2015)

  • Switched to the formula interface for naiveBayes() to be more consistent with other R functions.
    • There is also a function to pass in data w/o formula.
    • Note: this is different than the function from previous version. Old calls will no longer work. Please update to the new interface.
  • Added S3 methods: plot.naiveBayes, predict.naiveBayes
  • Improved compareCrimes() function.
    • Better estimation of the expected absolute differences between the temporal crime variables using convolution. It is now a deterministic function.
    • Uncensored event times, if exact times are known, are now permitted.
  • Updated crimes dataset with a slight modification to some dates.
  • Updated predict.naiveBayes() to give warning when a predictor is not included in model, but continue to give results.
  • Corrected typos in vignettes
  • Added default packges to imports
