pavo 1.2.1

MAJOR CHANGES:

MINOR FEATURES AND BUG FIXES:

  • fixed bug in vismodel() when a data frame, matrix or rspec object was passed as the background
  • replaced the modelled receptor sensitivities of the honeybee Apis melifera with the empirical sensitivities from Peitsch et al (1992)
  • fixed bug in colspace models when using non-standard receptor names or ordering

pavo 1.2

MAJOR CHANGES:

  • added the CIELch model accessed via colspace(space = ‘cielch’)
  • added the sensdata() function for retrieving and/or visualising pavo’s in-build spectral data

MINOR FEATURES AND BUG FIXES:

  • vignettes have been amalgamated & the single, main vignette is now up-to-date
  • added more informative labels for the segment analysis plot

pavo 1.1

MAJOR CHANGES:

NEW FUNCTIONS:

  • segspace() replaces the deprecated segclass(), and is accessed via the colspace() argument space = ‘segment’. The results of segspace() are also now compatible with coldist() for the estimation of Euclidean colour-distances.
  • segplot() is a plot for Endler’s (1990) segment analysis, and is accessed — along with all other 2d plots — via plot.colspace()

MINOR FEATURES AND BUG FIXES:

  • the use of relative quantum catches is now optional in the categorical colorspace (though still produces a warning), for greater flexibility
  • updated several functions to work when rspec object has only one spectrum
  • fixed bug in voloverlap where interactive plots would result in error
  • fixed incorrect labels in the maxwell triangle plot
  • fixed a bug in as.rspec() in which lim was not applied when interpolate = FALSE
  • fixed bug in aggplot() which resulted in error when using lty, lwd arguments
  • warning if ocular media is being used in both vismodel() and sensmodel()
  • added an ‘all’ option to the achromatic argument in vismodel()
  • added the ability to calculate dL for cielab models in coldist()
  • added some more informative messages and warnings

pavo 1.0

  • See vignette for detailed description of changes.

MAJOR CHANGES:

  • coldist() arguments have been changed. Now the empirically estimated value for the Weber fraction must be entered, instead of the noise-to-signal ratio. The noise-to-signal ratio is then calculated based on the empirically estimated Weber fraction for the reference cone type, and applied to the remaining cone types. This should avoid confusion between empirically estimated values for the Weber fraction and the noise-to-signal ratio, which are currently prevalent in the literature.
  • coldist() now has an additional argument, weber.achro, so that the value for the Weber fraction to be used to calculate achromatic contrast can be input independently of the cone ratios.
  • tcs() is deprecated, replaced by colspace().

NEW FUNCTIONS:

  • colspace() replaces tcs() and introduces several new colorspaces
  • plot() methods for several colspace() outputs, including a static tetrahedral colorspace
  • projpoints() allows the plotting of points in a projplot() figure
  • vol() draws volume polygons in static tetrahedral plots
  • axistetra() draws reference x, y and z axis arrows in static tetrahedral plots
  • legendtetra() adds legends to static tetrahedral plots

MINOR FEATURES AND BUG FIXES:

  • summary.colspace() for tcs spaces now returns relative color volume as well as absolute
  • tcsvol() and voloverlap() now allow control for line width
  • procspec() fixed error when attempting to smooth rspec object without column names
  • procspec() handles smoothing before fixing negatives to avoid re-adding negatives when smoothing
  • procspec(), aggplot() accept additional arguments to summary functions (e.g., na.rm=TRUE)
  • peakshape() default wavelength limits (lim) now taken from rspec object rather than 300-700
  • peakshape() returns warning if a spectrum contains duplicate reflectance values
  • summary.rspec() works with single spectra
  • aggplot() and aggspec() fixed bug on ordering of levels when they don’t match the sequence in the rspec object
  • aggplot() added logical argument “legend” for automatically adding a legend to the plot
  • vismodel() returns error if bkg=NULL
  • getspec() patched to stop returning warnings in Yosemite
  • getspec() has a faster (~5-10X), but less flexible, algorithm used when all input files are from the same source.

MINOR FEATURES AND BUG FIXES

  • vismodel() less cryptic error messages
  • as_rspec() fix message pertaining wavelength column

  • aggplot() allows control for different line types per spectra
  • voloverlap() now assigns darkgrey color for overlap if color vector is of length 1 or 2

BUG FIXES

  • explorespec() “free” argument fixed

  • aggspec() fixed matching of names
  • procspec() works with rspec objects that include a single reflectance spectrum
  • peakshape() minor fixes
