Gaussian finite mixture models fitted via EM algorithm for model-based clustering, classification, and density estimation, including Bayesian regularization, dimension reduction for visualisation, and resampling-based inference.

- Added website site and update DESCRIPTION with URL.
- Fixed a bug when checking for univariate data with a single observation in several instances. Using
`NCOL()`

works both for n-values vector or nx1 matrix. - Fixed a bug when
`hcPairs`

are provided in the`initialization`

argument of`mclustBIC()`

(and relatives) and the number of observations exceed the threshold for subsetting. - Fixed bugs on axes for some manual pairs plots.
- Renamed
`type = "level"`

to`type = "hdr"`

, and`level.prob`

to`prob`

, in`surfacePlot()`

for getting HDRs graphs - Fixed a bug in
`type = "hdr"`

plot on`surfacePlot()`

. - Fixed a bug in
`as.Mclust()`

. - Small changes to
`summary.MclustDA()`

and`estepVEE()`

when parameters contains`Vinv`

`clustCombi()`

and related functions.

- Model-based hierarchical clustering used to start the EM-algorithm is now based on the scaled SVD transformation proposed by Scrucca and Raftery (2016). This change is not backward compatible. However, previous results can be easily obtained by issuing the command:
`mclust.options(hcUse = "VARS") For more details see help("mclust.options")`

. - Small changes to
`icl()`

and`MclustDA`

objects. - Fixed bug for transformations in the initialization step when some variables are constant (i.e. the variance is zero) or a one-dimensional data is provided.
