New function

`change.point`

to perform the Castillo-Mateo change-point detection tests was added.Previously, if the series had

`NA`

values, all the record indicators from that time took`NA`

value. This made the functions return`NA`

p-values, etc. Now the`NA`

values are treated as non-records, i.e.,*I_t = 0*, unless they are the first observation, i.e.,*I_1 = 1*.-
`records`

function only allowed to show points, now it also shows lines.

The three missing values of the

`TX_Zaragoza`

dataset now take the value`NA`

, in previous Versions these values were imputed. This change does not affect the`ZaragozaSeries`

dataset.The ‘MANUAL’ help pages were updated.

The ‘VIGNETTES’ file was updated.

New function

`brown.method`

to perform the the Brown's method in the (weighted)-number-of-records was added.New function

`fisher.method`

to perform Fisher's method was added.New function

`R.record`

to compute record values.New function

`rcrm`

to generate random samples of the classical record model.New function

`series_ties`

to summarize the presence of record ties (or weak records) mainly due to rounding effects.New dataset

`Olympic_records_200m`

with record times and record values of the Olympic 200-meter race.New function

`series_record`

to apply the tools within RecordTest if only the record times are available and not the complete series.New argument

`weak`

if weak records are also computed in functions that compute the record random variables:`I.record`

,`L.record`

,`N.record`

, etc.

The ‘MANUAL’ help pages were updated.

The ‘VIGNETTES’ file was updated.

All functions have undergone a change in their arguments, providing new features in most cases.

The functions

`foster.test`

and`foster.plot`

now admit more statistics based on different combinations of records.The function

`series_uncor`

has change the criteria of considering the first and last columns uncorrelated, thus slightly different results can come from previous Versions. As new features it admits more types of uncorrelation and more arguments.The dataset

`TX_Zaragoza`

has been updated with more data.The matrix

`ZaragozaSeries`

has more rows and one more column according to the changes in`TX_Zaragoza`

and`series_uncor`

.Functions have been joined or renamed as follows:

From

`L_global.test`

renamed to`global.test`

, and now a global statistic for different types of record can be computed for the tests with two-sided alternatives`p.chisq.test`

,`p.regression.test`

,`lr.test`

and`score.test`

.From

`N_normal.test`

,`N_exactPB.test`

and`P_exactPB.test`

joint to`N.test`

, and new features added.From

`P_regression.test`

and`P_regression.plot`

renamed to`p.regression.test`

and`p.plot`

, and new features added.From

`P_chisq.test`

renamed to`p.chisq.test`

.From

`L_lr.test`

and`L_lm.test`

renamed to`lr.test`

and`score.test`

.From

`M.record`

renamed to`S.record`

.

The p-values in Monte-Carlo and Poisson-Binomial tests were computed with the expression

*P(X > X_0)*instead of*P(X ≥ X_0)*in all previous Versions, this problem was fixed.Function

`foster.plot`

showed the evolution of the*D*statistic improperly, this problem was fixed.

The ‘README’ and ‘VIGNETTES’ files were added.

New function

`foster.test`

to perform the Foster-Stuart and Diersen-Trenkler tests was added.New function

`foster.plot`

to perform plots based on the Foster-Stuart and Diersen-Trenkler statistics was added.New function

`L_global.test`

to perform likelihood ratio and Lagrange multiplier tests on record occurrence was added.New function

`L_lm.test`

to perform Lagrange multiplier test on record occurrence was added.New function

`series_untie`

to deal with record ties was added.Support for parallel computing was added in Monte Carlo functions:

`L_global.test`

,`L_lm.test`

,`L_lr.test`

.

Functions removed:

`dailymean.fun`

,`dailysd.fun`

,`N_joint.plot`

,`N_joint.test`

,`std.fun`

.Functions have been joined or renamed as follows:

From

`I.rec`

and`I.rec.matrix`

joined to the S3 method`I.record`

.From

`L.rec`

and`L.rec.matrix`

joined to`L.record`

.From

`M.rec`

and`P.rec`

renamed to`M.record`

and`P.record`

, respectively.From

`N.rec`

and`N.rec.matrix`

joined to`N.record`

.From

`Nmean.rec`

renamed to`Nmean.record`

.From

`DaySeries.fun`

,`double.fun`

,`mintime.cor.test`

,`value.rec`

renamed to`series_split`

,`series_double`

,`series_uncor`

,`records`

, respectively.From

`L_lr.test`

and`L_MC.test`

joined to`L_lr.test`

.

Data

`ZaragozaSeries`

: now the`series_double`

function has not been applied to it.

The p-value and statistic of

`P_regression.test`

was calculated incorrectly in Version 0.1.2, this problem was fixed.

Update by CRAN policies in some ‘Imports’ packages.

Minor changes.
