This afternoon swephR version 0.3.0 made it unto CRAN and is now propagating to the mirrors.
The goal of swephR is to provide an R interface to the Swiss Ephemeris (SE), a high precision ephemeris based upon the DE431 ephemeris from NASA’s JPL. It covers the time range 13201 BCE to 17191 CE.
This new version comes with two important changes. First, Victor has finished the laborious task of making all functions from SE’s C API available to R.
Yesterday tikzDevice version 0.12.3 made it unto CRAN and is now propagating to the mirrors.
The tikzDevice package provides a graphics output device for R that records plots in a LaTeX-friendly format. The device transforms plotting commands issued by R functions into LaTeX code blocks. When included in a paper typeset by LaTeX, these blocks are interpreted with the help of TikZ—a graphics package for TeX and friends written by Till Tantau.
