R 3.5.0 and spaces in file paths

The R 3.5.0 update introduced a bug, at least under MS-Windows. File paths containing spaces are truncated at the first space character, leading to errors like:


Fatal error: cannot open file 'C:\Users\<user-name>\AppData\Roaming\WinEdt': No such file or directory

for a file path like 'C:\\Users\\<user-name>\\AppData\\Roaming\\WinEdt Team\\WinEdt 10\\<file-name>' or 'C:/Users/<user-name>/AppData/Roaming/WinEdt Team/WinEdt 10/<file-name>'.

This bug breaks, among other things, the ‘RManager’ extension of the editor WinEdt. I would expect this to cause various other surprising errors after upgrading to R 3.5.0.

This bug is already corrected in the patched version of R 3.5.0 available through CRAN. For Windows, the most recent patched R version can be downloaded from https://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/base/rpatched.html and installed as usual.

ggspectra 0.2.4-1

The changes from version 0.2.3, the current CRAN release, are:

Track changes in package ‘photobiology’ 0.9.20:

  • Avoid spurious message due to use of deprecated function.

Enhancements:

  • ggplot() methods for collections of spectra.
  • plot() methods for collections of spectra.
  • Add parameter range to all ggplot() methods for consistency with plot() methods.
  • Revise examples in the User Guides to use the new methods. Revise other documentation.

Documentation web site at http://docs.r4photobiology.info/ggspectra/.

The updated package has been accepted to CRAN and will be available soon.

ggpmisc 0.2.17/ggpmisc 0.2.17.9902

Meanwhile waiting for the release of ‘ggplot2’ 2.2.2 I am keeping two parallel branches of  ‘ggpmisc’ under development.


‘ggpmisc’ 0.2.17 is in CRAN and is mainly a bug fix but it also incorporates all enhancements made since September 2017 which do not require ‘ggplot2’ (> 2.2.1).

Changes from version 0.2.16

  • Add stat_quadrat_count() a stat that computes the number of observations in each quadrat of a plot panel ignoring grouping.
  • Fix bugs, one of which is code breaking: the names of returned parameter estimates have changed in stat_fit_tidy() now pasting "_estimate" to avoid name clashes with mapped variables.

NOTE: This version of the package is available from CRAN


‘ggpmisc’ 0.2.17.9902 is in the CRAN-like repository at this site. It is as thoroughly tested as the CRAN version but contains geom_table and the stats that use this geometry, which make use of the development version of ‘ggplot2’, at least ‘ggplot2’ >= 2.2.1.9000 (>= commit of 2017-02-09).

After ‘ggplot2’ (>= 2.2.2) makes it to CRAN, a version from this enhanced branch will be submitted to CRAN.

Changes from version 0.2.16.9003 (November 2017)

  • Fix bugs, one of which is code breaking: the names of returned parameter estimates have changed in stat_fit_tidy() now pasting "_estimate" to avoid name clashes with mapped variables.

NOTE: This version of the package is available from https://r.r4photobiology.info/.
