This update includes several rather minor changes compared to ‘rOmniDriver’ 0.1.13:

  • Add set_USB_timeout() and is_USB_timeout().
  • Edit set_timeout() and is_timeout() as ‘OmniDriver’ does not always/any longer provide the Java methods setTimeout and isTimeout.
  • Add function is_api_enabled().
  • Add check for success of API initialization to function init_api().
  • Add preliminary (untested) support for I2C and SPI bus.
  • Move repository from BitBucket to GitHub.
  • Test with USB2000 (under Windows 10, FX/2 firmware updated to 2.51.0).
  • Test good with OmniDriver 2.56.
  • Update README to better explain all the steps needed to install this package as well as OmniDriver.
  • Update documentation to reflect that the company Ocean Optics has been renamed Ocean Insight.

‘rOmniDriver’ 0.1.13 included minor changes compared to ‘rOmniDriver’ 0.1.12:

  • Add brief installation instructions to README.
  • Fix bug affecting OS X and Linux.
  • Improve on-load diagnosis and messages.
  • Test good with OmniDriver 2.46.

ggpmisc 0.3.8

[27 January] ‘ggpmisc’ 0.3.8-1 is on its way to CRAN. The only change is correcting a mistake in a vignette. This was caused by the code-breaking change now highlighted below.

Package ‘ggpmisc’ focuses mainly on plot annotations. The new version adds fixes bugs and adds some minor feature. There are more significant changes to the documentation.

The package documentation web site at: https://docs.r4photobiology.info/ggpmisc/ now includes a changelog, so I am brief here.

Changes from version 0.3.7 the most recent CRAN release, are:

  • Move of the Git repository from Bitbucket to GitHub.
  • Revise stat_fit_glance(), stat_fit_augment(), stat_fit_tidy() and stat_fit_tb() to add support for additional methods and make it possible to pass additional arguments. This is a code-breaking change in that packages ‘broom’ and/or ‘broom.mixed’ need to be loaded explicitly with library().
  • Fix bugs related to handling of Date values.

Acknowlegement: This update was done in part to address questions raised at stackoverflow. The tag [ggpmisc] is in use at stackoverflow for questions related to this package.

ooacquire 0.2.2

During the last two years development has continued at a slow pace. Most changes are to the functions for interactive acquisition of spectra, correction of bugs and tracking to changes in packages from which imports are made. Testing was done with new OmniDriver releases. Some data examples have been added and also replaced. Some progress with the vignettes has been done. However, the documentation still needs work.

One visible change is the move of the Git repository from Bitbucket to GitHub. Package ‘rOmniDriver’ has also been moved to GitHub and its documentation updated to reflect this.

Starting from this release, the changelog is included in the online documentation at http://docs.r4photobiology.info/ooacquire/.
