New updates

photobiology 0.4.6

Several new functions added. a) Type conversion (by copy) as.source.spct(), as.filter.spct(), as.reflector.spct(), as.response.spct(), as.chroma.spct, as.generic.spct(). b) Object creation: source.spct(), filter.spct(), reflector.spct(), waveband(). c) computation: reflectance(), transmittance(). d) Setting attributes: setTimeUnit(), setTfrType(). e) Auxiliary functions: rmDerivedSpct(), spct.classes()

One function was removed. Function rbindlist() was deleted from the package, as it was redundant, and was causing problems. Please, be aware that you have to use rbindspct() when row-binding or stacking spectra.

Bugs fixed. class.spct() was returning sometimes wrong values. reflectance_spct() would crash. Overall consistency in the use of attributes was checked and a few problems corrected.

Vignette User Guide was updated with descriptions of the new functions added in this and recent versions, trying to make clear the use of spectral objects.

Backwards compatibility: source.spct objects have gained a time.unit attribute, and filter.spct objects a Tfr.type attribute. Objects created earlier will be missing these attributes. Some new functions need these attributes to function correctly. setTimeUnit() and setTfrType() can be used to update old objects if needed.

photobiologygg 0.1.13

Automatic plotting functions added. These functions implement the generic function plot() for source.spct, filter.spct and reflector.spct objects.

The vignette was updated with a few examples of the use of these functions, but the text still needs to be revised.

photobiologyLEDs 0.1.4

All source.spct objects re-created with the current version of package photobiology, so that they include the time.unit attribute.

Data for an UVB LED from TaoYuan was added.

The vignette was updated to include plots of all spectra. and to make use of the new plot functions from package photobiologygg.

photobiologyLamps 0.1.15

All source.spct objects re-created with the current version of package photobiology, so that they include the time.unit attribute.

The vignette was updated to make use of the new plot functions from package photobiologygg.

photobiologyFilters 0.1.13

All filter.spct objects re-created with the current version of package photobiology, so that they include the Tfr.type attribute.

The vignette was updated to make use of the new plot functions from package photobiologygg.

photobiologySun 0.1.4

All source.spct objects re-created with the current version of package photobiology, so that they include the time.unit attribute.

The vignette was updated to make use of the new plot functions from package photobiologygg.

NOTE: Sources, and Windows binaries for R 3.1.x, are now available in the repository. If you update, then, please, update all these packages, as they depend on each other.
