New package

photobiologyInOut 0.2.0

Newly released package with functions for importing data from proprietary formats used by spectrometer instruments from LI-COR (LI-1800, .PRN files generated by the PC1800 program), Macam (.DTA files generated by the SR9910-PC spectroradiometer), and Ocean Optics (possibly all spectrometers for SpectraSuite’s output files) into R as source.spct objects.

Function for importing spectral data from files generated by the TUV solar radiation model (Sasha Madronich, version 5.0). This is an experimental function, and needs either a slightly edited output from TUV and Quick TUV, or output from a slightly modified version of the TUV program, which I will soon release.

NOTE: Sources, and Windows binaries for R 3.1.x, are now available in the repository.

Update

photobiology 0.5.19

Added definitions of subset() methods for spectral objects, as otherwise the method for data.table would be called and drop attributes.

A few minor bugs fixed.

User Guide updated by adding example of use of subset().

NOTE: Sources, and Windows binaries for R 3.1.x, are now available in the repository.

Updates (bug fixes!)

photobiology 0.5.18

Fixed a bug in rbinspct() that prevented row-binding some types of spectra.

photobiologyPlants 0.2.0

Fixed mistake in naming of phytochrome photoequilibrium functions. All functions in this group now start with Pfr_Ptot.

This bug fix is not backwards compatible!

NOTE: Sources, and Windows binaries for R 3.1.x, are now available in the repository.

Updates

photobiology 0.5.17-1

No changes to code. Just updated dependencies to ensure that sufficiently new versions are available and if not, updated.

photobiologygg 0.2.9-1

No changes to code. Just updated dependencies to ensure that sufficiently new versions are available and if not, updated.

photobiologyPlants 0.1.2

Updated versions of dependencies. New generic function Pr_Ptot() for phytochrome photoequiibrium with methods
for numeric values of wavelengths and source.spct objects. Updated phytochrome chapter of User Guide.

NOTE: Sources, and Windows binaries for R 3.1.x, are now available in the repository.
