JAGS 3.1.0

August 11, 2011

(This article was first published on JAGS News » R, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

The patch release, 3.1.0  fixes a problem due to a change in the way the adapt command works (and the adapt() function in rjags).  If the model has an adaptive phase, you should normally include a burn in period (with the update command/function) straight after adaptation before trying to monitor any nodes.  Failure to do this in JAGS 3.0.0 can result in a “logic_error”. The new version allows you to do this without complaining.

This bug had some knock-on effects on R packages that use JAGS such as R2jags and bamdit.
