OVERVIEW

ANOVA extended to Gibbs models.

Improved algorithm for locallyscaled Kfunction.

Leaveoneout calculation of fitted values in ppm objects.

New dataset: presynaptic vesicles.

Geometrical operations with windows and images.

More edge corrections for Kfunction.

Improved handling and plotting of ‘fv’ objects.

Utilities for perspective views of surfaces.

New classes ‘anylist’, ‘solist’ will ultimately replace ‘listof’.

Given a point pattern dataset recording the locations and diameters
of objects, find the region covered by the objects.

Rotational average of pixel values in an image 
fardist
Distance from each pixel/data point to farthest part of window boundary 
circumradius.owin
Circumradius of a window 
rmax.Trans, rmax.Ripley
Compute the maximum distance ‘r’ for which the
translation edge correction and isotropic edge correction
are valid. 
is.grey
Determines whether a colour value is a shade of grey. 
harmonise
Convert several objects of the same class to a common format.
(New generic function with existing methods harmonise.im and harmonise.fv) 
area
New generic function, with methods for ‘owin’ and ‘default’. 
Fhazard
Hazard rate of empty space function 
anylist, as.anylist, [.anylist, [<.anylist, print.anylist, summary.anylist

plot.anylist, plot.solist
Plot methods for the classes ‘anylist’ and ‘solist’
(Currently identical to ‘plot.listof’)
SIGNIFICANT USERVISIBLE CHANGES

anova.ppm
Now applies to Gibbs models as well as Poisson models,
using adjusted composite likelihood ratio test statistic. 
persp.im
If visible=TRUE, the algorithm will also calculate which pixels of x
are visible in the perspective view. This is useful for drawing
points or lines on a perspective surface. 
Kest
New option: correction=”rigid” computes the rigid motion correction. 
pairwise interactions
Fitted parameters and other calculations for pairwise interaction models
DiggleGatesStibbard, DiggleGratton, Fiksel, Geyer, Strauss
may change slightly due to a change in handling numerical rounding effects. 
eval.fv
Functions no longer need to have exactly the same sequence of ‘r’ values.
They will now be made compatible using ‘harmonise.fv’. 
fitted.ppm
New argument ‘leaveoneout’ allows leaveoneout calculation
of fitted intensity at original data points. 
Kinhom, Linhom
New argument ‘leaveoneout’ specifies whether the leaveoneout rule
should be applied when calculating the fitted intensities. 
crosspaircounts
Results may change slightly due to a change in handling numerical
rounding effects. 
Fest, Gest
New argument ‘domain’ supports bootstrap methods. 
plot.fv
New argument ‘mathfont’ determines the font (e.g. plain, italic, bold)
for mathematical expressions on the axes and in the legend.
Defaults to italic. 
scanpp
Upgraded to handle multiple columns of mark data. 
circumradius
The function ‘circumradius’ is now generic, with methods
for the classes ‘owin’ and ‘linnet’. 
edge.Trans
New argument ‘give.rmax’ 
fvnames, plot.fv
The symbol ‘.a’ is now recognised. It stands for ‘all function values’. 
as.function.fv
Argument ‘extrapolate’ can have length 1 or 2. 
varblock
New argument ‘confidence’ determines the confidence level. 
$<.fv
This can now be used to add an extra column to an ‘fv’ object
(previously it refused). 
minnndist, maxnndist
New argument ‘positive’. If TRUE, coincident points are ignored:
the nearestneighbour distance of a point is the distance to the
nearest point that does not coincide with the current point. 
plot.fv
Improved handling of ‘shade’ argument. 
Kmeasure
Now passes ‘…’ arguments to as.mask() 
Ksector
Now allows start < 0.
New arguments ‘units’ and ‘domain’. 
pairorient
New arguments ‘units’ and ‘domain’. 
eroded.areas
New argument ‘subset’ 
disc
New argument ‘delta’ 
plot.plotppm
New argument ‘pppargs’ 
harmonise.fv, harmonise.im
These are now methods for the new generic ‘harmonise’ 
Fest, Gest
These functions now also compute the theoretical value of hazard
for a Poisson process, if correction = “km”. 
with.fv
Improved mathematical labels. 
Gfox, Jfox
Improved mathematical labels. 
area.owin
This function is now a method for the new generic ‘area’ 
edges
Default for argument ‘check’ changed to FALSE.
BUG FIXES

varblock
Calculations were incorrect if more than one column of
edge corrections was computed.
[Bug introduced in spatstat 1.211, november 2010.]
Fixed. 
varblock
Crashed if one of the quadrats contained no data points.
Fixed. 
lohboot
Interval was calculated wrongly when global=TRUE and fun=”Lest” or “Linhom”.
Fixed. 
nnmark
Crashed when at=”points” if there was only a single column of marks.
[Spotted by Shane Frank.]
Fixed. 
plot.msr
Some elements of the plot were omitted or cut off.
Fixed. 
plot.msr
Did not work with ‘equal.scales=TRUE’.
Fixed. 
plot.msr, augment.msr
Crashed if every data point was duplicated.
Fixed. 
as.im.owin
Crashed if X was a 1 x 1 pixel array.
Fixed. 
owin
Coordinates of polygon data were altered slightly when fix=TRUE.
[Spotted by Carl Witthoft.]
Fixed. 
objects of class ‘fv’
Assigning a new value to names(x) or colnames(x) or dimnames(x)
would cause the internal data format to become corrupted.
Fixed. 
to.grey, complementarycolour
Did not work properly on ‘colourmap’ objects.
Fixed. 
Kest
Ignored argument ‘var.approx’ if the window was a rectangle.
Fixed. 
rmh.ppm, rmhmodel.ppm
Ignored the argument ‘new.coef’.
[Spotted by Sebastian Schutte]
Fixed. 
as.function.fv
The meanings of ‘extrapolate=TRUE’ and ‘extrapolate=FALSE’ were swapped.
Fixed. 
varblock
Handled the case ‘fun=Lest’ incorrectly.
Fixed. 
[.fv
Sometimes garbled the internal data format, causing plot.fv to crash.
Fixed. 
range.fv
Sometimes returned NA even when na.rm=TRUE.
Fixed. 
Fest
Argument ‘eps’ was not interpreted correctly.
Fixed. 
plot.fv
Argument ‘lwd’ was not passed to legend() 
flipxy.owin
Sometimes deleted the name of the unit of length.
Fixed.
