Version 0.6-12 of NIMBLE released

July 29, 2018

(This article was first published on R – NIMBLE, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

We’ve released the newest version of NIMBLE on CRAN and on our website. Version 0.6-12 is primarily a maintenance release with various bug fixes.

Changes include:

  • a fix for the bootstrap particle filter to correctly calculate weights when particles are not resampled (the filter had been omitting the previous weights when calculating the new weights);
  • addition of an option to print MCMC samplers of a particular type;
  • avoiding an overly-aggressive check for ragged arrays when building models; and
  • avoiding assigning a sampler to non-conjugacy inverse-Wishart nodes (thereby matching our handling of Wishart nodes).

Please see the NEWS file in the installed package for more details.
