Updated xtableGallery.snw to illustrate the change. * Moved vignettes from inst/doc to vignettes as now required by CRAN * Changed email address of David Dahl to dahl@stat.byu.edu in 9 places 1.7-3 (2014-03-06) * Released to CRAN 1.7-2 (2013-08-28, Not Released to CRAN) * Fixed HTML gsub bug (#2795) * Dealt with format.args bug (#4770). No code changes, but the documentation of print.xtable was changed to warn of the problem and to give a workaround as an example 1.7-1 (2013-02-24) * Fixed logicals bug (Req #1911) * Changed implementation of centering of tables. Instead of inserting a centered environment, now a \centering command is inserted. (Req #2104) * Allow for margin tables as possible with document class tufte-handout. An example of usage is found in the vignette produced by margintable.Rnw which is in inst/doc. (Req #2168) * Added "timestamp" argument to print.xtable(). Set it to NULL if no timestamp is desired. (Req #2246) * Added "comment" argument to print.xtable(). Set it to FALSE to exclude the version and timestamp comment. (Req #2246) * Added "caption.width" argument. If not NULL then the caption is placed in a "parbox" of the specified width. (Req #2247) * Remove the check on whether the "floating.environment" is in a list of known floating environments. Users want to use floating environments from multiple options LaTeX packages (Req #2488, #2578) 1.7-0 (2012-02-10) * Added some vectorization code to improve performance. * Let "caption" be length 2, in which case the second value is the short caption used when creating a list of tables. * Added "toLatex" method. * Included "print.xtable" in the exported methods in the NAMESPACE file. * Added "print.results" argument to "print" that can be used to suppress the printing. * Added "format.args" argument to "print" that can be used to pass additional arguments such as "big.marks" to "formatC()". * Added "rotate.colnames" and "rotate.rownames" arguments to "print.xtable". * Added "booktabs" argument to use the "\toprule", "\midrule", and "\bottomrule" tags from the Latex "booktabs" package rather than using "\hline" for all horizontal lines. * Added "scalebox" argument to include a "\scalebox" clause around the tabular environment with the specified value used as the scaling factor. * Added "width" argument to allow specification of the width value in tabular environments such as "tabularx". * Added "X" as an allowed alignment value in the "align()" replacement function. * Changed the "print.xtable()" arguments to use "getOption()" to check the options for a default value. This was suggested since "print.xtable()" has a lot of arguments that the user will typically leave unchanged between tables. * Added an "is.null()" check on the "table.placement" argument. * Added examples using the new arguments to the vignette. 1.6-0 (2011-10-07) * Allow "table*" as a value for "floating.environment" in print.xtable(). * Fix bug under which multiple logical columns were formatted incorrectly. * Stop with an error if "xtable.table" is used on a table with more than two dimensions. * Add some newlines to "Rd" file to prevent lines from extending off the page in the PDF version of the help files. * Changed the maintainer to "Charles Roosen". * Created an "xtable" project on R-Forge. 1.5-6 (2009-10-30) * Support caption at the top in the LaTeX longtable. * Use options()\$OutDec for decimal mark. 1.5-5 (2009-03-24) * Added html.table.attributes to set the attributed of the tag for HTML tables. * Accommodated logicals by converting to characters. * Add an extra space at end of each line for LaTeX tables. * Fixed typographical error in documentation.
