Modification history of utility package
=======================================
Changes version 1.4.4 (26.11.2019) -> version 1.4.5 (09.03.2020)
================================================================
NS/PR: option for plotting of tick marks in hierarchy plots added
Changes version 1.4.3 (27.09.2018) -> version 1.4.4 (26.11.2019)
================================================================
PR: apply hierarchy plot attributes for the value line also to the median
PR: passing plot arguments to axis commands enabled, e.g. yaxp
PR: manual page of utility.aggregate.geooff corrected
Changes version 1.4.2 (15.11.2017) -> version 1.4.3 (27.09.2018)
================================================================
PR: allow for NAs and set them equal to "" for attributes in endnode.cond
PR: new plot arguments "col.val" and "lwd.val" for formatting the value lines
in hierarchy and table boxes
PR: constant extrapolation added to intpol1d node; plot bounded to data
range
xlim added to plot.utility.endnode.intpol1d and
plot.utility.endnode.parfun1d
xlim and ylim added to plot.utility.endnode.intpol2d
PR: New function implemented: "utility.get.attrib.names"
Changes version 1.4.1 (09.05.2017) -> version 1.4.2 (15.11.2017)
================================================================
PR: Error corrected with plotting hierarchies: the argument "two.lines" was
ignored if the hierarchy was plotted from a node other than the top node
PR: Format of hierarchy and table plots adjusted by not setting margins to
zero internally.
This leaves the user the freedom of chosing his or her own margins
Changes version 1.4 (15.01.2017) -> version 1.4.1 (09.05.2017)
==============================================================
PR: Error corrected with plotting aggregation functions that use the
argument "add.arg.fun"
("evaluate" correctly used the argument already in version 1.4)
Changes version 1.3 (14.10.2014) -> version 1.4 (15.01.2017)
============================================================
PR: New aggregation technique "bonusmalus" added
PR: Documentation of aggregation functions complemented with equations and
plots
PR: New aggregation techniques "addpower", "revaddpower", "addsplitpower",
"revaddsplitpower" added
PR: Width of colored axes in 2d aggregation countour plot increased
PR: Position of legend in hierarchy plot improved (level of lowest box)
PR: Colors of boundary values modified to get color corresponding to higher
values
PR: New option "two.lines"" for plotting hierarchies with spreading the
labels in the boxes across two lines
PR: New end node type "classcounts" implemented
Changes version 1.2 (15.01.2014) -> version 1.3 (14.10.2014)
============================================================
PR: New end node type "firstavail" implemented
PR: Error corrected: argument "with.attrib=FALSE" was ignored in hierarchical
plot when nodes were specified
PR: Error in hierarchical view with multiple u and a single uref corrected.
PR: New aggregation function provided:
"utility.aggregate.addmin"
PR: Missing offset parameter added to example in help file for the functions
utility.aggregate.geooff, utility.aggregate.revgeooff,
utility.aggregate.harmooff, utility.aggregate.revharmooff,
PR: Change attribute type to numeric for endnodes intpol1d, intpol2d and
parfun1d
PR: Bounding boxes corrected for tabular plot
PR: Comment added to example regarding values out of range due to normal
distribution of uncertainty.
PR: Line ends improved for color legend in hierarchy plot.
PR: Additional argument "print.val" added to the plot functions for tables
and hierarchies to select whether the numerical values should be written
into the boxes in the tabular view.
Changes version 1.1 (03.03.2013) -> version 1.2 (15.01.2014)
============================================================
PR: Citation file added and reference updated.
PR: Plot of aggregation nodes as isolines if only two nodes are aggregated
PR: Colored bars along axes of value functions improved according to plots
of 2d aggregation nodes (see point above)
PR: Function "utility.structure":
Missing consideration of shift.levels for end nodes corrected.
Function "utility.structure" is now exported.
PR: The functions
"updatepar.utility.conversion.intpol" and
"updatepar.utility.conversion.parfun"
are corrected to update parameters of underlying nodes.
PR: New aggregation functions provided:
"utility.aggregate.geo"
"utility.aggregate.geooff"
"utility.aggregate.revgeo"
"utility.aggregate.revgeooff"
"utility.aggregate.harmo"
"utility.aggregate.harmooff"
"utility.aggregate.revharmo"
"utility.aggregate.revharmooff"
PR: New argument "levels" in plot functions to indicate which hierarchical
levels should be plotted in hierarchical and tabular plots.
PR: New argument "plot.val" in plot functions to indicate whether a vertical
line indicating the value should be plotted in the boxes of hierarchical
and tabular plots.
PR: New option to provide u as a list in plot functions with option type =
"table" or type = "hierarchy" to plot multiple rows or hierarchies with
uncertainty ranges.
PR: Argument "uref" is now also supported for type="table".
PR: Output of class constructors on successful termination suppressed.
Changes version 1.0 (22.09.2012) -> version 1.1 (03.03.2013)
============================================================
PR: Functions "updatepar" and "utility.get.colors" are now exported.
PR: Global variable "utility.num.colors" eliminated.
PR: Documentation of plotting hierarchies complemented by the comment that
only value nodes are colored.
