- In <code>plot.OutputsModel()</code> the <code>PlotChoice</code> argument is deprecated and has been renamed <code>which</code>.


#### User-visible changes

- <code>plot.OutputsModel()</code> displays air temperature time series for each layer when <code>CemaNeige</code> is used (argument <code>which = "Temp"</code> or <code>"all"</code>).

____________________________________________________________________________________


### 1.0.3 Release Notes (2016-12-09) 

#### New features

- <code>ErrorCrit&#42;()</code> functions gain a warnings argument to replace the verbose action and the verbose argument now prints the criterion value(s).

#### User-visible changes

- <code>CreateInputsModel()</code> now returns an error if <code>NLayers <= 0</code> when <code>CemaNeige</code> is used.

- <code>plot_OutputsModel()</code> now displays raw values on the y-axis when the discharge time series is represented with log scale (formerly, log values of discharges were displayed on the y-axis).


____________________________________________________________________________________


### 1.0.2 Release Notes (2016-11-03) 


#### New features

- <code>SeriesAggreg()</code> gains a TimeLag argument that corresponds to a numeric value indicating a time lag (in seconds) for the time series aggregation (useful to aggregate hourly time series to the daily time step for instance).
231
232
 In addition, the function now accepts input dates in both POSIXt formats (POSIXct and POSIXlt). The output is in POSIXct format.
 
233
234
235
- <code>plot_OutputsModel()</code> gains a <code>log_scale</code> argument in order to plot the flow with a log scale.

- A tutorial is available online on the following link: from http://webgr.irstea.fr/airGR.
236
 It can also be displayed with the <code>vignette("airGR")</code> command.
237

239
240

#### Bug fixes

- The value <code>sort</code> for the <code>transfo</code> argument of <code>CreateInputsCrit()</code> was not taken into account. It is now fixed. 


244
#### Deprecated and defunct
245
246
247
248
249

- <code>CreateCalibOptions()</code> loses the OptimParam argument that was redundant with the <code>FixedParam</code> argument. The <code>Calibration_Michel()</code> was modified to take into account this change by using directly <code>FixedParam</code>, but this is transparent to the user. 

- <code>CreateCalibOptions()</code> loses the StartParam argument that was not used. 

250
 
251
252
253
#### Major user-visible changes

- The <code>RunModel_GR6J()</code> and <code>RunModel_CemaNeigeGR6J()</code> models were modified back to versions previous to 1.0.1 to prevent from unwanted efficiency criteria deterioration related to the calibration with <code>Calibration_Michel()</code>. 
254
255
256
 The actual model codes were not modified but the <code>TransfoParam_GR6J()</code> and <code>CreateCalibOptions()</code> functions were modified regarding the X5 parameter. 
 It is strongly advised to use airGR 1.0.2 for the <code>RunModel_GR6J()</code> and <code>RunModel_CemaNeigeGR6J()</code> functions if you are using <code>Calibration_Michel()</code>, as they are much more efficient. 
 In case you were using your own calibration algorithm, you will not notice any difference.

269
#### Deprecated and defunct
270
271
272
273
274

- The <code>Calibration_HBAN()</code> and <code>DataAltiExtrapolation_HBAN()</code> functions have respectively been renamed as <code>Calibration_Michel()</code> and <code>DataAltiExtrapolation_Valery()</code> after the names of their creators.

- The <code>Calibration_optim()</code> function has been removed from the package.

275
- The silent mode is now defined by the <code>verbose = TRUE</code> argument (formerly <code>quiet = FALSE</code>) in the following functions:
276
277
278
279
280
<code>Calibration()</code>, <code>Calibration_Michel()</code>, <code>CreateInputsModel()</code>, <code>CreateRunOptions()</code>, <code>DataAltiExtrapolation_Valery()</code>, <code>ErrorCrit()</code>, <code>ErrorCrit_KGE()</code>, <code>ErrorCrit_KGE2()</code>, <code>ErrorCrit_NSE()</code>, <code>ErrorCrit_RMSE()</code>, <code>plot_OutputsModel()</code>, <code>SeriesAggreg()</code>.


#### Major user-visible changes
- The GR5J model has been modified: previously, two unit hydrographs were used, now only one is remaining.
281
 As a consequence, simulations from the GR5J (<code>RunModel_GR5J()</code> function) and CemaNeige (<code>RunModel_CemaNeigeGR5J()</code> function) models will be different.
282
283
284
285
286
287
288
289

- An important proportion of the transformations of the parameters have been modified (<code>TransfoParam&#42;()</code> functions). Since this modifies the local search, calibration results will be different .

- The quantiles of the parameters have been recalculated with the new transformations (<code>CreateCalibOptions()</code> function). Since these quantiles constitute the starting point of the calibration algorithm, calibration results will be different.


#### Minor user-visible changes

290
- The Fortran model core codes have been modified:

304
	- optimisation of the codes for fastening of computation;
	- simplification of the internal variables for easier reading and understanding.
	
- The list of the contributors and authors is now full.

- The references of the package has been updated; they are returned by the following R-command <code>citation("airGR")</code>.

- CemaNeige users must now specify one <code>MeanAnSolidPrecip</code> for each elevation layer. The <code>CreateRunOptions()</code> function is impacted.

- CemaNeige users can now specify the mean elevation of the input series (before it was always considered equal to the catchment median elevation). 
 The impacted functions are <code>CreateInputsModel()</code> and <code>DataAltiExtrapolation_HBAN()</code>.
 
386
387
388
- New architecture with better format verification procedure (using classes) and simpler setting of default configuration.

389
 (the exotic use of "generic function" created by the users has been removed).
390

#### New features

- Additional functions for results plotting (the <code>{zoo}</code> package is required for some of them).

- Add multi-objective calibration using <code>nsga2()</code> (the <code>{mco}</code> package is required).

- The field Multiplier has been added in the ErrorCrit() outputs, to indicate whether the criterion is an error (to minimise) or and efficiency (to maximise).
 This allows to provide real efficiency values in the outputs e.g. NSE[Q] instead of (-1) &times; NSE[Q].


423
424
425
426

#### Bug fixes

- RC11 bug correction: the automatic selection of the warm-up period was not working properly when no data was available from warm-up (i.e. when the user had set the run to start at the very first index).

- RC10 bug correction: the <code>CalibrationAlgo_HBAN()</code> function was not working in the very rare case when the diagonal search was activated and lead to a set outside the authorised range.

- RC9 bug correction: the <code>CalibrationAlgo_HBAN()</code> function was not working properly with models having only one parameter.

431
- RC8 bug correction of the <code>ModelDefaultIniOptions()</code> function (this bug was introduced in the RC7 and caused an error when <code>IndPeriod_WarmUp = NULL</code>.
432
433
434
435
436
437

- RC7 bug correction of the <code>ModelDefaultIniOptions()</code> function (the automatic selection of one year for warm-up was not handling properly missing data).

- RC6 correction of the help files (the description of CemaNeige parameters were inverted).

- RC5 differs from previous releases in the way the data are read and stored (in a list instead of individual vectors).
438
439
 The package is similar, only the examples of Main and the files in MyScriptBlocks have changed.
 All basin data are now stored inside a list named <code>BasinData</code>. This will greatly ease the future use of Rdata files (instead of txt files) as storage format for the time series of observation. 
440
441


442
#### Deprecated and defunct
443

444
- <code>EfficiencyCrit()</code> have been replaced by <code>ErrorCrit()</code> to avoid misunderstanding (by default, the algorithms minimise the error criterion).
