remove require() statements and dependency on stats
vignettes moved to
libsvm upgrade to version 3.17, getting rid of stdout and stderr
write.matrix.csr() now accepts a
read.matrix.csr(), writing factor levels instead
of the numeric codes.
naiveBayes() uses a numerically more stable formula for
calculating the a-posterior probabilities.
predict.naiveBayes() now accepts data with predictors in
an order different from the training data, and also ignores variables
not in the model (especially the response variable).
svm() checks whether parameters which are passed to the
C-code are set to NULL to avoid segfaults.

version bump of libsvm to 3.1
Fixed partial argument matching in several places
NEWS file changed to .Rd format and moved to ‘inst/’

provided as validation sample, the response variable was not correctly
sQuote() instead of hard-coded quotes in
warnings and error messages in several places
Bug fix in labeling of decision values
decision.values of fitted values to a svm object
Bug fix in
svm(): Error messages returned by the C
function have not been correctly handled, causing segfaults.

the dependent variable.

predict.naiveBayes() sped up
Bug fix in
plot.svm() (error in case of training
categories without predictions)
methods now added to Suggests, and grDevices to Imports
Bug fix: sparse handling was broken since 1.5-9
update to libsvm 2.81
laplace smoothing added to
tune(): allow list of vectors as tune parameter range so that
class.weights in svm-models can be tuned
better default color palette for
probplot() for probability plots
Bug fix: class probability prediction was broken since 1.5-9
tune() now returns the split indices into
training/validation set. Information added about cross validation
plot.svm(): wrong labeling order in levels fixed
predict.svm() now adds row numbers to predictions, and
correctly handles the
na.action argument using
Update to libsvm 2.8 (uses a faster optimization algorithm)
read.matrix.csr() did not work correctly with
svm(): Fixed wrong labeling for predicted decision values and
probabilities in case of a Class factor created from a non-ordered
cmeans() is substantially enhanced, with a complete
rewrite of the underlying C code. It is now possible to specify
case weights and the relative convergence tolerance. For Manhattan
distances, centers are correctly computed as suitably weighted
medians (rather than means) of the observations. The print method
for fclust objects is now more in parallel with related methods, and
registered in the name space.
read.octave() is now deprecated in favor of a
substantially enhanced version in package foreign for reading
in files in Octave text data format.
Use lazy loading
New arguments in
plot.svm() for customizing plot
symbols and colors
Fix of broken code in
plot.svm() for the

only one center

Bug fix in
plot.svm(): non-SVs had wrong colors
data sets Ozone and Glass added
Several Docu bug fixes (for functions
upgrade to libsvm 2.5. New feature:
optionally returns decision values for multi-class classification
svm-vignette gave warnings due to rank deficiency in Ozone data
naiveBayes() now also supports metric predictors, and
the standard interface.
Bug fixes in svm:
Prediction of 1 single observation gave an error
Only k instead of k*(k-1)/2 ρ coefficients have been returned by svm (k number of classes), having caused nonsensical results for k > 3.
The ‘svmdoc’ file in ‘inst/doc’ now is a vignette.
x argument of

Started ‘tests’ directory
naiveBayes() classifier for categorical predictors
read.matrix.csr() which used to be rather slow
Bug fixes for the
svm() interface: when the data included
categorical predictors, the scaling procedure did not only
affect the metric variables, but also the binary variables
in the model matrix.
scaclust() removed. Bug has to be fixed.
Now supports libsvm 2.4
rdiscrete() is now simply a wrapper for

Minor bug fixes in
interface issues). New plot function for objects of class
svm working for the 2d-classification case.
svm() now supports the matrix.csr format, as handled by the
SparseM package. Predictors and response variable (if
numeric) are scaled per default.
plot() function for
models by plotting data and support vectors in the data input
space, along with the class borders.
A new generic
tune() function allows parameter tuning
of arbitrary functions using, e.g., boot strapping, or cross validation.
Several convenience wrappers (e.g., for
rpart()) do exist.
Bug fixes in various bclust routines:
required packages are not found
