• new features:

  • extended testing scripts of package

  • bug fixes:

  • logl() and rghype(): fixed bug that treated as a hypergeometric model a ghype where all odds are equal to 0. Throws error instead.

  • compute_xi(): Fixed a bug that introduced spurious stubs for nodes with zero degrees when creating a Xi matrix without selfloops

  • link_significance(): fixed bug when under=TRUE, updated implementation to improve performance

  • ghype(): fixed computation of degrees of freedom for full model where xi has zero values

  • bug fixes:
  • link_significance(): When calling with under = FALSE and pval = FALSE was returning phi(0) = 1 instead of Pr(x>0)
  • function renaming:

  • linkSignificance() –> link_significance()

  • ComputeXi() –> compute_xi()

  • new features

  • updated documentation for endogenous statistics functions

  • introduced a new function get_zero_dummy() that generates the dummy variable to be used together with endogenous statistics functions.

  • added testing with test_that

  • check_specs(): recognize bipartite graphs

  • addressed issue #15: bccm now names coefficients according to label names. E.g.: coefficient for the propensities between block ‘red’ and ‘blue’ are now named ‘red<->blue’.

  • bug fixes:

  • scm(): fixed df for bipartite graphs

  • linkSignificance(): fixed issue for bipartite graphs

  • bccm(): fixed issue when fitting to bipartite graphs

  • bccm(): fixed issue arising when passing a list of identical labels (all vertices in one block)

  • Added a NEWS.md file to track changes to the package.
  • Fixed a bug in check_specs() that threw an error when the function was called without additional parameters.
  • Modified bccm() to improve its speed when passing a large number of labels.
  • Renamed nrmSelection(), createPredictors, and nrmChoose() to nrm_selection(), create_predictors, and nrm_choose() respectively, to standardise functions’ names.
  • Updated nrm_selection() and nrm_choose() to use ‘pbmclapply’ and show a progress bar.
  • Added compatibility to ‘texreg’ to visualise the output of nrm as a table of parameters.
