ggplot2 3.0.0

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 for details on ‘ggplot2’ updates.


ggpmisc roadmap

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’.

photobiologySun 0.4.0

The main changes from version 0.3.7, the most recent version are:

  • Group reference spectra into a collection.
  • Rebuild all data objects adding metadata.
  • New vignette.
  • Because of some object name changes this update can break code developed with earlier non-CRAN releases.
