The version 0.24 of solaR is at CRAN and R-Forge. Some days before the 0.23 version was uploaded, but I had to make a quick fix to readMAPA: the url of http://www.mapa.es/siar has been changed to http://www.marm.es/siar. Moreover, this function has been renamed to readSIAR, although it is still available as readMAPA. Consequently the mode modeRad‘mapa’= is now deprecated and renamed to modeRad‘siar’=.

Besides, the arguments prom, mapa, bd and bdI of calcG0, calcGef, prodGCPV and prodPVPS have been unified in the new dataRad argument. Those arguments are now deprecated although still available.

The previous solaR 0.23 fixed a bug in fInclin when horizBright=FALSE, and:

• Four sun-geometry methods are now available.
• ThzS, AlS and AzS are not set to NA outside sunrise-sunset period.
• fInclin and calcGef gain a new argument, HCPV, for High Concentrated Photovoltaics.
• A bug in fSolI and fTheta when lat=0 has been corrected.

Last, the vignette has been reformated and now uses the memoir class of LaTeX. It is available here.
