This post is not to announce something related to my own packages, but to highlight Rob Hyndman’s new packages for working with time-series data using a tidy approach. If you have to deal with time series in R, you should have a look at these packages and read the posts with examples of their use at the Hyndsight blog.
I suspect more is to come soon, but for the time being have a look at what Rob Hyndman wrote yesterday and today in his blog.
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.
