tidyLPA 0.2.0 2018-09-13

Major breaking change:

  • change how models are specified; instead of using the model argument, whether and how the variances are covariances are estimated are passed the the variances and covariances argument; there are details in the readme and vignette and if a model argument is passed to a function, a message is returned describing how to specify the model using the variances and covariances arguments

Major change

  • change the compare_solutions_mplus() functions Mplus to still allow for the specification of six models, but to use the same four as compare_solutions() (which uses the mclust package, not MPlus) by default

tidyLPA 0.1.3 2018-03-28

  • improve plot_profiles() plots, including plotting bootstrapped standard when mclust output is directly used (thanks @cjvanlissa) & updated vignette with example of this
  • improve output from compare_solutions_mplus (thanks @DJAnderson07)
  • add function, extract_LL_mplus(), to extract log-likelihoods from models fit witsah estimate_profiles_mplus()
  • update documentation for pisaUSA15 dataset
  • improve compare_solutions_mplus() so it more reliably handles errors
  • improve vignette (thanks @oreojo for suggestion to mention that this package works best for continuous variables)
  • add URLs for package and bug reports to DESCRIPTION
  • add C.J. van Lissa and Daniel John Anderson as contributors

tidyLPA 0.1.2 2018-02-18


  • Specify version 0.7 of MplusAutomation in Imports to address error

Minor updates:

  • Update README and Vignette
  • Update function names to include MPlus
  • Export %>% from magrittr (so it does not need to be loaded from dplyr)
  • Correct name of title for vignette
  • Update function names
  • Change output of estimate_profiles_mplus() to be returned with return(), instead of with invisible()

tidyLPA 0.1.1 2018-02-14

  • Added a NEWS.md file to track changes to the package.
