### 1.0.5.12 Release Notes (2017-01-23) 


#### New features

- <code>DataAltiExtrapolation_Valery()</code> and <code>CreateInputsModel()</code> now present a PrecipScale argument which allows rescaling precipitation when it is interpolated on the elevation layers when CemaNeige is used.


#### Bug fixes

- Fixed bug in <code>DataAltiExtrapolation_Valery()</code>. The elevation gradients for air temperature returned by <code>CreateInputsModel()</code> are improved.


#### User-visible changes

- <code>DataAltiExtrapolation_Valery()</code> has been improved. <code>DataAltiExtrapolation_Valery()</code> now runs faster (and by consequence <code>CreateInputsModel()</code> too, when CemaNeige is used).

____________________________________________________________________________________


### 1.0.4 Release Notes (2017-01-18) 

#### New features

- <code>RunModel_CemaNeige()</code>, <code>RunModel_CemaNeigeGR4J()</code>, <code>RunModel_CemaNeigeGR5J()</code> and <code>RunModel_CemaNeigeGR6J()</code> now return air temperature for each elevation layer. 


#### Deprectated and defunct

- S3 plot method defined for <code>OutputsModel</code> objects. It means that the <code>plot_OutputsModel()</code> function is deprecated and his use has been replaced by the use of <code>plot.OutputsModel()</code> or <code>plot()</code>.

- 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).


#### Bug fixes

- Fixed bug in <code>CreateCalibOptions()</code> when <code>StartParamList</code> or <code>StartParamDistrib</code> arguments are used.


#### 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).
136
137
 In addition, the function now accepts input dates in both POSIXt formats (POSIXct and POSIXlt). The output is in POSIXct format.
 
138
139
140
- <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.
141
142
 It can also be displayed with the <code>vignette("airGR")</code> command

#### 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. 


#### Deprectated and defunct

- <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. 

155
 
156
157
158
#### 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>. 
159
160
161
 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.

#### Minor user-visible changes

- <code>CreateInputsModel()</code> and <code>DataAltiExtrapolation_Valery()</code> functions now allow both POSIXt formats (POSIXct and POSIXlt).


____________________________________________________________________________________


### 1.0.1 Release Notes (2016-04-21) 

#### Deprectated and defunct

- 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.

180
- The silent mode is now defined by the <code>verbose = TRUE</code> argument (formerly <code>quiet = FALSE</code>) in the following functions:
181
182
183
184
185
<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.
186
 As a consequence, simulations from the GR5J (<code>RunModel_GR5J()</code> function) and CemaNeige (<code>RunModel_CemaNeigeGR5J()</code> function) models will be different.
187
188
189
190
191
192
193
194

- 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

195
- The Fortran model core codes have been modified:

### 0.7.0 Release Notes (2014-06-06) 

#### Experimental features

- unfinished version used for development purpose.

____________________________________________________________________________________


### 0.6.2 Release Notes (2014-02-12) 

#### 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.

- 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>

- 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).
367
368
 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.
