export as.matrix() generic.
Make binary similarities work with binary data in case of list data (by coercing list to a matrix).
Bug in Fager/McGown measure fixed.
PACKAGE="proxy" argument added to all .External-calls. "PACKAGE" field added to the registry, defaulting to "proxy", and used by .Call().
the method argument of
dist() now also accepts a
registry entry to avoid unnecessary lookups in repeated calls to
names<-.dist did not accept
NULL as assignment.
small vignette with an overview of existing methods added.
Podani, Chord, geodesic, Hellinger and Whittaker dissimilarities added.
Fager/McGown anf Faith similarities added.
pr_simil2dist now computes 1 / (1 + x) instead of 1 / (1 - x)
fix labeling bug for list data with named components
the C-level dist functions now conform with those in package stats with respect to NA handling (pairwise-complete observations).
as.matrix.dist by default now uses 0 for diagonal elements
fix a bug in Kullback-Leibler-distance
fixed dist/simil subsetting
self-proximities now default to NA
data frames are auto-converted to matrices if all variables are
either numeric, logical, or complex (to be compatible to
pairwise distances can now be computed
Registry is now case-insensitive
