version 0.3-1 2019-04-23

  • st_as_stars.bbox now has an ncells and pretty argument, to better choose default raster dimensions

  • rewrote vignettes, added vignettes; #99

  • deprecate st_write.stars for write_stars; #96

  • use “native” R array-factor support

  • support for PCICt 360- and 365-day calendars; #29

  • remove import of ncdf4 in favour of RNetCDF, now in line with practice in ncmeta package. Thanks to David Blodgett for motivation and testing (see #87, #94).

  • st_as_sf uses date/time column names when appropriate

  • allow missing trailing comma’s when subsetting: a[1,,] and a[1,] now do the same.

  • move rlang to Imports: ; rewrite [ subset using rlang.

  • add conversion to and from Spatial* classes, including the gridded ones, taking care of factor variables

  • depend on sf 0.7-2

version 0.2-0 2018-10-25
