metrica 2.0.3
CRAN release: 20230414
This version fixes an issue found for Debian for Importing APSIM NewGeneration files that violated CRAN Policy’s.
Change details:
 Adding a READONLY flag within import_apsim_db() as follows:
con < DBI::dbConnect(…, flags = RSQLite::SQLITE_RO)
 Simplified vignette for open “APSIM: Importing APSIM Classic and NewGeneration files” now implementing “eval = FALSE” for a chunk containing example code to open APSIM files. Code is there but not running by default.
Potentially problematic code line: apsim_out_filepath < system.file(“extdata/soybean.out”, package = “metrica”)
 PREVIOUS VERSIONS
metrica 2.0.2
CRAN release: 20230402
This new version fixes minor bugs from version 2.0.1, typos, update and add new vignettes, and add alternative functions to several classification performance metrics. Details:
This new development version fixes minor bugs found in v2.0.1:
Adding “Contributing”” and “Code of conduct”” sections to the README file.
Adding “CODE_OF_CONDUCT.md” file.
Adding a list of abbreviations used on the vignette “Available Classification Metrics”.
Fixing a bug on the PLA and PLP formulas, which were not working when the
data
argument was specified.Corrects, on the DESCRIPTION file, the minimum R version required (from 2.1.0 to 3.6.2)
Including an “extdata” directory containing APSIM example files (soybean.out & soybean.example.db)
Fix typos in the documentation of RRMSE, RSR, and iqRMSE, which formulas were corrected (removing 100 from the beginning of formulas.
Add alternative functions to recall performing identical job such as (i) sensitivity, (ii) True Positive Rate TPR, and (iii) Hit Rate hitrate.
Add alternative functions to specificity performing identical job such as (i) selectivity, (ii) True Negative Rate TNR.
Add vignettes related to (i) publication of metrica on the Journal of Open Source Software (JOSS), (ii) the metrica
ShinyApp
, and (iii) the newcheatsheets
of the metrica package.Make a correction on the vignette specifying the formula of Duveiller’s
lambda()
, which by the way does not affect thelambda()
function itself.Add alternative functions to precision (
ppv()
), mcc (phi_coef()
), bmi (jindex()
), csi (jaccardindex()
), and deltap (mk()
).Add
CITATION
file into “inst/” folder followingbibentry
format.
metrica 2.0.1
CRAN release: 20220724
 July 23th, 2022.
This new version fixes minor bugs found in v2.0.0:
regression lines with “OP” orientation in scatter_plot(), density_plot(), and tiles_plot(), which were producing the “PO” oriented regression lines instead.
estimation of “d1r” index for regression, which produced misleading values due to a typo in the denominator.
printing metrics on confusion matrix, which produced a NaN when printing 9 metrics.

NSE()
function to estimate the NashSutcliffe model efficiency that produced only values of NSE=1.00 on v1.2.3.Improved coverage of the code testing.
README update with new features descriptions and links to vignettes.
Updated vignettes creating independent versions for classification and regression models, and for importing APSIM files.
metrica 1.2.3
CRAN release: 20220512
 May, 10, 2022.
Maintenance update fixing minor errors after feedback from CRAN submission of v1.2.2 (e.g. use ‘donttest’ instead of ‘dontrun’ in functions’ examples, adding references into functions). Also, the available metrics vignette was updated adding the corresponding citations of formulae used into functions.
metrica 1.2.2
 May, 05, 2022.
Maintenance update fixing minor bugs related to checks before CRAN submission (e.g. spelling check, URLs, DOIs, etc.)
metrica 1.2.1
Minor updates (1.2.1):
Update of function and arguments’ names replacing “.” by “_“:
Old  New import.apsim.out  import_apsim_out import.apsim.db  import_apsim_db metrics.summary  metrics_summary scatter.plot  scatter_plot tiles.plot  tiles_plot bland.altman.plot  bland_altman_plot B0.sma  B0_sma B1.sma  B1_sma metrics.list  metrics_list print.metrics  print_metrics
New features (1.2.0)
Data: a new (Optional) arg. called “data” is included for all functions, which serves to call an existing data frame containing the predictedobserved data. This facilitates passing the functions to multiple and nested data frames at once using mapping functions.
APSIM: includes two new functions to read APSIM output files from APSIM Classic [“*.out”, import.apsim.out()] and APSIM NextGen [“*.db”, import.apsim.db()].
