Updated seed setting argument and functionality of compare_predictions()
to assist in replicability.
Updated NAMESPACE and dependencies to avoid upstream deprecation warnings from statnet

For compare_predictions()
the denominator used to calculate the percentage of correctly predicted ties was changed from an arbitrary placeholder to the number of dyads within a network. Prior results based upon this function will be adequate if results were reported as relative (FERGM v. ERGM) comparisons of the percentage of correctly predicted ties.
For functions taking the custom_var_names
argument, such as clean_summary()
, coef_plot()
, coef_posterior_density()
, and fergm_beta_traceplot()
, the default value in prior versions would produce errors if terms other than those specified in the fergm.fit
formula were included. For example, if the nodemix
term was specified in the form
argument for fergm()
, then a statistic for each pairing of values may be added to the model estimated. These functions taking custom_var_names
have been updated to handle such terms.
Revised documentation to add clarity.
Fixed compare_predictions_test()
function to correctly return ks.test
output.
