CRAN release ‘Luminescence’ v0.9.20

- the small things -

by RLum.Network (July 16, 2022)

Sometimes the small things matter the most. Our newest release of 'Luminescence' (0.9.20 ) targets the small things by fixing a few bugs and adding tiny workflow improvements to selected functions.

For instance the function plot_RLum.Data.Spectrum() finally plots the colour rug nicely and without overplotting and can be combined with a new argument frames to display only the frames of interest for a fast and publication-ready graphical output.

##(1)plot simple spectrum (2D) - image
  plot.type = "multiple.lines",
  xlim = c(310, 750),
  ylim = c(0, 300),
  frames = c(1, 2, 3, 6, 12),
  bin.rows = 10,
  bin.cols = 1

Another examples is the internal function Luminescence:::.add_fancy_log_axis() to create more fancy log axis labels, not readily available in base R. We will make the addition available successively to suitable plot functions. The function is non-exported, which means that it is used mainly internally. However, you can use the function also for your own R plots. How does it look?

df <- seq(1,1e+6, length.out = 100)
par(mfrow = c(1,2)) 
plot(df, log = "x")
plot(df, xaxt = "n", log = "x")
Luminescence:::.add_fancy_log_axis(side = 1)

And we have more. For a complete list of changes, please check our GitHub page.

Stay safe and enjoy 'Luminescence'
