New versions of Hmisc and rms are available on CRAN. Changes are listed

below.

The most significant change to Hmisc is the addition of the ffCompress

function that creates an optimal ff package object for large data frames

by computing the maximum number of bits used by each numeric or logical

variable in the data frame. And the html.latex method now implements

conversion of latex code generated by Hmisc to html for dynamic

insertion in R Markdown documents (if you install the system package

TeX4ht).

The most significant changes to rms are the correct handling of offset

variables and updating the demos.

Hmisc Changes in version 3.17-0 (2015-09-20)

* format.df (used by latex.default): added space after textless,

textgreater

* label: changed default for units to value of plot

* getRs: replaced where argument with guser, grepo, gdir, dir to

allow easy fetching of updated functions from Hmisc etc.

* Separated sas.get source code from other .get functions and from

upData/cleanup.import by putting into 3 separate files. Moved stata.get

into misc.get.s

* upData: for Stat/Transfer exported R workspaces, change

variables into factors to incorporate value labels when present; added

subset argument and reporting of number of observations pre and post

subsetting

* latex.default: added comma after botcap directive for ctable.

Thanks: Paul Trowbridge

* Hmisc-internal.Rd: removed alias{[.terms}

* latex.default: for longtable when no caption is given, subtract

one from table counter

* latex.summaryM: quit ignoring insert.bottom if it is a character

string (thanks: JoAnn Alvarez)

* minor.tick: revised version by Earl Belllinger that fixes

problem reported in

https://github.com/harrelfe/Hmisc/issues/28 * several functions: used new names when assigning temporary functions

* NAMESPACE: add imports to base functions to avoid new R CMD

CHECK warnings

* ffCompress: new function

* knitrSet: changed fig.path default to '' instead of NULL to work

with knitr 1.11

* html.latex: added argument rmarkdown

* htmltools: added to suggests in DESCRIPTION

* tests: new test script latex-html.Rmd for latex -> html under

Rmarkdown/knitr/Rstudio, new test for cut2

* plsmo, panel.plsmo: added method='intervals', mobs, ifun arguments

rms Changes in version 4.4-0 (2015-09-28)

* contrast.rms: made SE a vector not a matrix, added 4 list logic

for nvary, added new test from JoAnn Alvarez

* plot.summary.rms: correct bug where pch was ignored. Thanks:

Tamas Ferenci

* prModFit: fix print(fit, latex=FALSE) when fit is result of

robcov, bootcov

* NAMESPACE: added imports for base functions used to avoid

warnings with R CMD CHECK; new test rcs.r

* prModFit: added rmarkdown argument. All print.* methods can

pass this argument.

* All print methods for fit objects: left result as prModFit

instead of invisible() so that rmarkdown will work

* demo/all.R: updated for plot and ggplot methods, npsurv

* cph, predictrms, rms, rms.trans, rmsMisc: changed Design

function to return new objects sformula (formula without cluster()) and

mmcolnames which provides a new way to get rid of strat() main effects

and interactions involving non-reference cells; handle offsets in cph

and predict() (not yet in Predict); new internal function

removeFormulaTerms that does character manipulation to remove terms like

cluster() or offset() or the dependent variable(s). This gets around

the problem with [.terms messing up offset terms when you subset on

non-offset terms

* Glm, ols: fixed offset

* bj, Gls, lrm, orm, psm, Rq: change to new offset method and sformula

* Predict: added offset=list(offsetvariable=value)

* several: made temporary function names unique to avoid warnings

with R CMD CHECK

* ggplot.Predict: changed facet_wrap_labeller to not mess with

class of returned object from ggplotGrob

* Design: fixed column names for matrix predictors

* Design, cph: handled special case where model is fit on a fit$x

matrix

* dxy.cens: exported

* cph: added debug argument

* tests/cph4.r: new tests for various predictor types

* rms: changed warning to error if an ordered factor appears in

the model and options(contrasts) is not set properly

* rms transformation functions: made more robust by checking !

length instead of is.null
