The main changes from version0.4.4, the current CRAN version, released 18 months ago are:
Code breaking! Names of some member spectra in the collection have been modified. In most cases, the change is the addition of the name of the supplier (e.g. filters.mspct$RG9 has become filters.mspct$Schott_RG9 ).
Rebuild data objects with current version of ‘photobiology’ package (0.9.28).
Add data for MIDOPT filters released in the mean time.
Add data for an assortment photography filters of various brands.
Add data for the old “WG” UV pass filters from Schott, which have been replaced some years ago by “N-WG” filters.
As the updated ‘ggplot2’ 3.0.0 became today available through CRAN, I will soon submit the new package ‘gginnards’ and a new enhanced version of package ‘ggpmisc’. That the first digit of the version of ‘ggplot2’ was increased reflects the fact that this is a major update to ‘ggplot2’ with some code breaking changes. The versions of packages ‘ggpmisc’ and ‘ggspectra’ now in CRAN are compatible with both ‘ggplot2’ 2.2.1 and 3.0.0. See https://ggplot2.tidyverse.org/ for details on ‘ggplot2’ updates.
I am planning to split the ‘ggpmisc’ package into two separate packages for the next CRAN release. The low level functions and methods useful mainly to programmers will be transferred to a new package with possible name ‘ggpguts’ or ‘gginspector’. The remaining stats, geoms and scales, will remain in ‘ggpmisc’.
