photobiologyInOut 0.4.16

The main changes from version 0.4.15 the previous CRAN release, are:

  • Revise read_fmi_dat() to extract date from file header and save the file header to the spectral object as a comment.
  • Add new function read_fmi2mspct() for reading spectral irradiance data.
  • Bug fix: decoding of dates in fmi import functions for daily data not always returned POSIXct objects triggering errors in downstream code.

photobiology 0.9.23

Changes from version 0.9.22, the most recent CRAN release, is:

  • Bug fix: Ensure that getWhenMeasured() always returns an object of class POSIXct. Avoids occasional crashes in ‘PhotobiolgyInOut’.
  • Add scale.factor as formal parameter to methods irrad(), q_irrad(), e_irrad(), response(), q_response() and e_response(). Previous behaviour remains the default.
  • Change default value for parameter idx in the various summary methods for collections of spectra. Also add parameter idx to “add attributes to tibble” methods. The new default argument does not affect the default behaviour of the methods. The change in handling of idx = NULL, the old default might break old code in exceptional cases when idx = NULL was passed explicitly in user code instead of relying on it being the default.
  • Rewrite the “get” methods for attributes using a simpler, and possibly faster approach.
  • Add parameter sep to function convolve_each(). Previous behaviour remains the default.
