News: to package distrTEst

######################################################################

(first two numbers of package versions do not necessarily reflect package-individual development, but rather are chosen for the distrXXX family as a whole in order to ease updating "depends" information)

############## v 2.8 ##############

user-visible CHANGES:

  • plot methods now return an S3 object of class \code{c("plotInfo","DiagnInfo")}, i.e., a list containing the information needed to produce the respective plot, which at a later stage could be used by different graphic engines (like, e.g. \code{ggplot}) to produce the plot in a different framework. A more detailed description will follow in a subsequent version.
  • DESCRIPTION tag SVNRevision changed to VCS/SVNRevision

############## v 2.7 ##############

no changes in this version

############## v 2.6 ##############

user-visible CHANGES:

  • title changed to title style / capitalization

############## v 2.5 ##############

user-visible CHANGES:

GENERAL ENHANCEMENTS:

  • cleaned DESCRIPTION and NAMESPACE file as to Imports/Depends
  • enhanced imports in DESCRIPTION by explicating second order imports

under the hood: added .Rbuildignore

BUGFIXES:

############## v 2.4 ##############

under the hood:

  • some coercings to logical forced, e.g. AllClasses.R
  • fixed (new discovered) error in distrTEst (sd no longer applies to matrices).
  • removed lazyload tag in DESCRIPTION
  • added DESCRIPTION tag "ByteCompile" to all our packages
  • updating maintainer email address and URL.
  • deleted no longer needed chm folders

############## v 2.3 ##############

No extra changes this time

  • DESCRIPTION files and package-help files gain a tag SVNRevision to be filled by get[All]RevNr.R from utils in distr

############## v 2.2 ##############

GENERAL ENHANCEMENTS:

  • added tests/Examples folder with file distrTEst-Ex.Rout.save to have some automatic testing
  • added field "Encoding: latin1" to all DESCRIPTION files in order to avoid problems with e.g. Windows locale when svn replaces $LastChangedDate
  • added TOBEDONE (sic!) files for each package (by accident also in trunc; these are empty so far)

############## v 2.1 ##############

  • Rd-style:
    • several buglets detected with the fuzzier checking mechanism cf [Rd] More intensive checking of R help files, Prof Brian Ripley, 09.01.2009 10:25) [Rd] Warning: missing text for item ... in \describe? , Prof Brian Ripley,

############## v 2.0.3 ##############

  • under the hood:
    • enhanced plotting (correct dispatch; opening of new device is controlled by option("newDevice") )
    • after JMC's changes: gone through setIs relations to ensure "correct" inheritance
  • moved license to LGPL-3

############## v 1.9 ##############

############## v 1.8 ##############

  • plot, print and summary are now more flexible for objects of class Evaluation or EvaluationList
  • global conrols by new distrTEstoptions()
  • now suggests distrEx in description
  • updated citation file
  • evaluation method for Contsimulation
  • slot result in Evaluation class now of class "DataframeorNULL"
  • slot call.ev in Evaluation class now of class "CallorNULL"
  • new slot Data of class Dataclass, but which in turn, in case of simulations, has an empty "Data"-slot (to be able to check whether all Data sets of an Evaluation List coincide)
  • new class EvaluationList with slots name ("character") and Elist ("list") to gather the results of several Evaluations on the same data set
  • revised plot method for class Evaluation to account for multivariate results
  • print,plot,summary,show methods for EvaluationList
  • Data as an accessor to slot Data for Evaluation class and to the common Data slot of EvaluationList class
  • savedata now allows for more flexible filenames, but retains the old convention by default

############## v 1.7 ##############

  • additional "..." included into function evaluate
  • NEWS file
  • citation file
  • distrTEst-package.Rd file
