photobiology 0.10.14

COMPATIBILTY FIX: An update of package ‘tidyselect’ 1.2.0 now in CRAN deprecated syntax previously accepted. This change affected indirectly the syntax used in ‘dplyr’ and ‘tidyr’ resulting in lots of warnings and in a few odd behaviours in ‘photobiology’. To solve this I replaced several calls to dplyr::rename() and dplyr::select() with newly written code using only base R functions and operators.

Changes from version 0.10.13 the most recent CRAN release, are:

  • Compatibility fix:  track changes in syntax brought by package ‘tidyselect’ 1.2.0 and possibly ‘rlang’ 1.0.6, affecting ‘photobiology’ through ‘dplyr’ and ‘tidyr’.
  • Fix some bugs, including an edge case of handling of spectra with with only NA values in w.length variable.
  • Add function illuminance().

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

NOTE: Version 0.10.14 is on its way to CRAN.
