photobiologyInOut 0.4.23

Fifteen months since the previous release, this update adds support for one new spectrometer from LI-COR and multiple spectrometers from Wasatch Photonics. Updates to the tidyverse were triggering deprecation notices which are now avoided. Updates to package ‘photobiology’ revealed some minor bugs that are also fixed. Unnecessary progress messages during file realing and text scanning have been silenced.

The main changes from version 0.4.22 the previous CRAN release, are:

  • Add parameters na and ... to read_csi_data().
  • Add function read_wasatch_csv() supporting data import from long form CSV spectrum files saved by Wasatch’s Enlighten program.
  • Add function read_li180_txt() supporting data import from files saved by the LI-180 handheld array spectrometer from LI-COR.
  • Avoid spurious progress messages when reading files.
  • Track various changes in the tidyverse that deprecated functions used in this package.
  • Fix bugs in some imports from ‘photobiology’.
  • Move git repository from Bitbucket to Github.
  • Set up Github action for CRAN-checks on Windows, OS X and Ubuntu.
