Here are some of the updates for this version:
A simple function (
matchLabels) to match labels between trees.
A new function (
consensus.edges) containing various methods to compute the consensus edge lengths from a set of trees.
An update to
evol.vcvto fit a one matrix only model. (I also subsequently pushed an update to allow it work for only one trait too.)
New S3 method updates for object classes
"multiSimmap"and new function
More important fixes to
dotTreefor trees containing few taxa.
Separate user control of left- and right-facing tree font sizes in
cophyloto permit links in
assocfor taxa not found in the trees (here).
as.phylomethod for objects of class
New options for setting the root state in
Important updates to
fitPagelto permit different dependency relationships between traits and different models of evolution.
New options for user control in
Important updates to the
Update to function (
multiC) for computing multiple phylogenetic VCV matrices depending on the state of a mapped trait (here).
Important bug fix for the function
roundPhylogramto permit different line edges and types.
Finally, a new interactive version of
phylo.toBackboneto permit a backbone tree with subtrees plotted as triangles to be created interactively, rather than via a static translation table (here).
These updates are already on CRAN - but it will probably take a couple of days for binaries to be built and percolate through the mirror repositories. In the meantime, as always, phytools can be installed from GitHub. Enjoy!
