photobiology 0.10.6

The package documentation web site at includes a changelog with information for each release since version 0.1.0.

This release includes fixes to several minor bugs that were reported during the last seven months. In addition to these fixes new specializations of existing methods were added to improve the consistency across the different methods and classes. The Git repository was recently moved from Bitbucket to GitHub and continuous integration using Git actions set up.

Changes from version 0.10.5 the most recent CRAN release, are:

  • Fix boundary-condition bug in msmsply().
  • Fix handling of na.rm = TRUE in find_peaks().
  • Revise the computation of the default for dyn.range in cps2Tfr() and cps2Rfr() so that it takes into account the relative signal in
    the reference spectrum.
  • Add parameter missing.pixs to cps2irrad() so that corrupted too-short spectra can be converted if the location of missing pixels
    is known.
  • Add row-wise summaries for raw_mspct and cps_mspct objects.
  • Add support of multiple spectra in long form to irrad(), e_irrad(), q_irrad(), q_ratio(), e_ratio(), qe_ratio(), eq_ratio(), absorbance(), absorptance(), trasmittance(), reflectance() methods.
  • Add warning for handling of multiple spectra in long form to integrate_spct() method.

NOTE: The updated package is on its way to CRAN.
