when 'f' is a pixel image.

In the default case (where dataAtPoints is not given)
all spatial covariates, including the spatial coordinates x and y,
are now evaluated at the centre of each pixel. This improves
consistency with other implementations of spatial logistic regression.

interpoint interaction on the covariates.

are also discretised.

o nncross.ppp, nncross.pp3
If 'iX' and 'iY' were given, some of the results were incorrect.

The remaining 'spatstat' package requires all the other subpackages.
Your existing code scripts should still work with minimal changes.
o overall speed
Changes have been made to the internal code of spatstat
which should accelerate computations involving large datasets.
o vcov.ppm, summary.ppm
Variance calculations now handle larger datasets
because they use sparse arrays, by default.

o harmonise.im
The result belongs to class 'solist' and 'imlist'
so that it can be plotted.

The formal default value of 'stringsAsFactors' has been changed
to 'NULL' to conform to changes in R. (The actual default value

o rlabel
New argument 'group' specifies that the points are divided into
several groups, and that relabelling is applied within each group.

so that it no longer depends on plot.linim, and is more efficient.
The formal argument list has been extended.

when the summary function produces NA or NaN or infinite values.
o sessionLibs

New argument 'clip'
BUG FIXES
o rLGCP, simulate.kppm
Simulation results for logGaussian Cox processes were incorrect
unless the pixel dimensions and pixel spacings were identical
on the horizontal and vertical axes. (If pixel dimensions were not
specified, then the results were incorrect whenever the Frame of the
simulation window was not a square.)
[Spotted by Tilman Davies.]
Fixed.
o crossdist.pp3
Results with periodic=TRUE were partially incorrect.
Fixed.
o deviance.lppm, pseudoR2.lppm

colour map, the wrong number of NA's was sometimes produced.
Fixed.
o Gest

reducedsample
(border correction) and KaplanMeier corrected estimates were calculated.
[Spotted by Gopalan Nair.]
Fixed.
o Lcross.inhom, Kcross.inhom, Kmulti.inhom
The option 'correction="none"' was accepted but ignored.
[Spotted by Corey Anderson.]
Fixed.

If the fitted model was effectively a Poisson process,
the result did not have attributes 'Lambda' and 'parents'
even when the user requested them.
Fixed.
o affine.owin
For mask windows, the pixel resolution of the result
was too fine, leading to very large datasets.
Fixed.

of the result was too fine, leading to very large datasets.
Fixed.
o plot.ppp
For a point pattern in a binary mask window,

the points were coloured according to 'col', which was incorrect.
Fixed.
o dirichletEdges
Crashed if any edges crossed the boundary of the window.
Fixed.
o Vmark
Crashed if normalise=TRUE when there was only one column of marks.
(Spotted by Pavel Fibich.)
Fixed.

Log message:
geography/Rspatstat: import Rspatstat1.63.2
Comprehensive opensource toolbox for analysing Spatial Point
Patterns. Focused mainly on twodimensional point patterns, including
multitype/marked points, in any spatial region. Also supports
threedimensional point patterns, spacetime point patterns in any
number of dimensions, point patterns on a linear network, and patterns
of other geometrical objects. Supports spatial covariate data such as
pixel images. Contains over 2000 functions for plotting spatial data,
exploratory data analysis, modelfitting, simulation, spatial
sampling, model diagnostics, and formal inference. Many data types and
exploratory methods are supported. Formal hypothesis tests of random
pattern and tests for covariate effects are also supported. Parametric
models can be fitted to point pattern data using the functions ppm(),
kppm(), slrm(), dppm() similar to glm(). Types of models include
Poisson, Gibbs and Cox point processes, NeymanScott cluster
processes, and determinantal point processes. Models may involve
dependence on covariates, interpoint interaction, cluster formation
and dependence on marks. Models are fitted by maximum likelihood,
logistic regression, minimum contrast, and composite likelihood
methods. A model can be fitted to a list of point patterns (replicated
point pattern data) using the function mppm(). The model can include
random effects and fixed effects depending on the experimental design,
in addition to all the features listed above. Fitted point process
models can be simulated, automatically. Formal hypothesis tests of a
fitted model are supported along with basic tools for model selection.
