o Package structure
The package 'spatstat.core' has been split into two packages called
'spatstat.explore' (for exploratory data analysis)
and 'spatstat.model' (for modelling and formal inference).
o spatstat.explore
The new package 'spatstat.explore' contains the code for
exploratory data analysis and nonparametric analysis
of spatial data. Examples include 'density.ppp', 'Kest',
'envelope', 'rhohat', 'clarkevans.test'.
o NEWS
The NEWS file for the new package 'spatstat.explore'
contains older news items from the defunct package 'spatstat.core'
(for functions which are now in 'spatstat.explore').
o Kest, Kdot, Kcross, Ldot, Lcross, Kmulti
These functions now accept the option 'correction="periodic"'
to compute the periodic (toroidal) edge correction estimate.
o Kest, pcf, Ksector, Kdot, Kcross, Kmulti
When ratio=TRUE, the denominator is now equal to the number of pairs of
points considered. This does not affect the estimate of the summary
function, but it changes the calculation of pooled estimates
when the estimates were obtained from different sized windows.
o markcorr, markcrosscorr
These functions now allow negative mark values when normalise=FALSE.
o marktable
This function now works for point patterns in three dimensions (class 'pp3')
and point patterns on a network (class 'lpp').
o bw.relrisk
This function is now generic, with a method for class 'ppp'
o compileK, compilepcf
These functions have a new argument 'samplesize'.
If 'ratio=TRUE' the numerator and denominator will be rescaled
by a common factor so that the denominator is equal to 'samplesize'.
o adaptive.density
Now accepts 'method="nearest"' and passes the data to 'nndensity'.
o rhohat.ppp
New options 'smoother="mountain"' and 'smoother="valley"'
for estimating a unimodal function (U-shaped curve).
o rhohat.ppp
If the covariate is a 'distfun', the name of the unit of length is saved
and displayed on the plot.
o rhohat.ppp
New arguments 'jitter', 'jitterfactor', 'interpolate' allow greater
control over the calculation.
o rhohat.ppp
New argument 'do.CI' specifies whether to calculate confidence bands.
CHANGES IN spatstat.core VERSION 2.4-4.010
OVERVIEW
o Internal improvements.

OVERVIEW
o Bug fixes and minor improvements.
BUG FIXES
o rhohat.ppp
The argument 'subset' was not handled correctly in the internal data.
The estimated function 'rho' was correct, but if 'predict.rhohat' was applied,
predictions were computed only in the 'subset', and were possibly incorrect values.
Fixed.
o Gfox, Jfox
Warnings were issued about text formatting errors (mentioning 'sprintf' or 'fmt').
Fixed.

SIGNIFICANT USER-VISIBLE CHANGES
o spatstat.core
The package 'spatstat.core' has been created from a subset

It contains the core functionality for statistical analysis of
spatial data. For an overview, see help("spatstat.core-package")

The 'spatstat.core' package is slightly faster than the corresponding
code in the 'spatstat' package, because the procedure for calling
internal C functions has been streamlined.
