Minor update to Vegan (1.17-10)

June 1, 2011

(This article was first published on From the bottom of the heap » R, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

I overlooked blogging about this at the time, but Jari released a minor update to our Vegan package to fix a few issues following release of R 2.13-0. As far as the user is concerned, this mainly affects capscale(). metaMDSrotate(), a helper function for rotating nMDS solutions from function metaMDS() can now handle missing values via argument na.rm = TRUE.

The relevant section of the NEWS file is reproduced below:

		       CHANGES IN VEGAN 1.17-10

    - This is minor revision that mainly fixes vegan with respect to
      changes in the currently released R 2.13.0. Most importantly,
      cmdscale() output changed in R 2.13.0 and because of this
      capscale() could fail in some rare situations with argument 'add
      = TRUE'. This vegan bug made BiodiversityR package fail its
      tests in R 2.13.0. 

    - metaMDSrotate: gained argument na.rm = TRUE.
