ggalt: Extra Coordinate Systems, 'Geoms', Statistical Transformations, Scales and Fonts for 'ggplot2'

A compendium of new geometries, coordinate systems, statistical transformations, scales and fonts for 'ggplot2', including splines, 1d and 2d densities, univariate average shifted histograms, a new map coordinate system based on the 'PROJ.4'-library along with geom_cartogram() that mimics the original functionality of geom_map(), formatters for "bytes", a stat_stepribbon() function, increased 'plotly' compatibility and the 'StateFace' open source font 'ProPublica'. Further new functionality includes lollipop charts, dumbbell charts, the ability to encircle points and coordinate-system-based text annotations.
