35
- Added <code>TransfoParam_CemaNeigeHyst()</code> function in order to take into account transformation of the parameters of the CemaNeige module when the hysteresis is used.

36
- <code>CreateInputsCrit()</code> now can prepare an <code>InputsCrit</code> object in order to compute a single criterion (<code>Single</code> class), multiple criteria (<code>Multi</code> class) with the <code>ErrorCrit()</code> function. So it is now possible to set the following arguments as atomic (as before) or as list: <code>FUN_CRIT</code>, <code>obs</code>, <code>BoolCrit</code>, <code>transfo</code>, <code>weights</code>. If the list format is chosen, all the lists must have the same length.

____________________________________________________________________________________


### 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).
319
 In addition, the function now accepts input dates in both <code>POSIXt</code> formats (<code>POSIXct</code> and <code>POSIXlt</code>). The output is in <code>POSIXct</code> format.
320
 
321
322
323
- <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.
324
 It can also be displayed with the <code>vignette("airGR")</code> command.

327
328
329
330
331

#### 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. 


332
#### Deprecated and defunct
333
334
335
336
337

- <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. 

338
 
339
340
341
#### 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>. 
342
343
344
 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. 
345
346
347
348


#### Minor user-visible changes

349
- <code>CreateInputsModel()</code> and <code>DataAltiExtrapolation_Valery()</code> functions now allow both <code>POSIXt</code> formats (<code>POSIXct</code> and <code>POSIXlt</code>).

357
#### Deprecated and defunct
358
359
360
361
362

- 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.

363
- The silent mode is now defined by the <code>verbose = TRUE</code> argument (formerly <code>quiet = FALSE</code>) in the following functions:
364
365
366
367
368
<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.
369
 As a consequence, simulations from the GR5J (<code>RunModel_GR5J()</code> function) and CemaNeige (<code>RunModel_CemaNeigeGR5J()</code> function) models will be different.
370

371
- 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 .
372
373
374
375
376
377

- 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

	- 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>.

#### Major user-visible changes

469
470
471
472
473
- 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>.
 
474
475
476
- New architecture with better format verification procedure (using classes) and simpler setting of default configuration.

- New architecture where the model, calibration and error functions are in the arguments of the functions
477
 (the exotic use of "generic function" created by the users has been removed).
478

479
- Improved documentation and examples. 
480
481


482
#### Minor user-visible changes
483

484
- Improvements allowing the arrival of new models.
485

486
- Improvements of the argument verifications in <code>CreateInputsModel()</code>, <code>CreateRunOptions()</code>, <code>CreateInputsCrit()</code>, <code>CreateCalibOptions()</code>.
487

488
- Improvements of all the <code>ErrorCrit()</code> functions to better account for the cases with constant flow values or local zeros.
489

490
491
492
- Improvement of the <code>plot_OutputsModel</code> function (to handle 0 in Qobs and Qsim).

- Improved documentation.

#### 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].

#### 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.

519
- 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>.
520
521
522
523
524
525

- 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).
526
527
 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. 
528
529

#### Deprecated and defunct
531

532
- <code>EfficiencyCrit()</code> have been replaced by <code>ErrorCrit()</code> to avoid misunderstanding (by default, the algorithms minimise the error criterion).

#### Minor user-visible changes

- Code improvements to reduce the computation time.

- Clearer instructions for the adding and modification of a model.

- Improvements of the documentation.
