Version 1.2.4 of the Functional Data Analysis (fda) package is now
available on CRAN. In this version, both 'smooth.basis' and
'smooth.basisPar' have been modified to make them easier to use. They
have more useful defaults and they return an object of class
'fdSmooth', with methods for 'plot', 'lines', and 'plotfit'. In
addition, there have also been improvements to the 'plotfit' function
and the 'CanadianWeather' data. Also, a function 'norder' has been
added, which returns the order of a B-spline.
