Version 0.6-9 of NIMBLE released

February 9, 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 0.6-9 is primarily a maintenance release with various bug fixes and fixes for CRAN packaging issues.

New features include:

  • dimensions in a model will now be determined from either ‘inits’ or ‘data’ if not otherwise available;
  • one can now specify “nBootReps = NA” in the runCrossValidate() function, which will prevent the Monte Carlo error from being calculated;
  • runCrossValidate() now returns the averaged loss over all k folds, instead of the summed loss;
  • We’ve added the besselK function to the NIMBLE language;
  • and a variety of bug fixes.

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