`manual_pal()`

produces a warning if n is greater than the number of values in the palette (@jrnold, #68).`precision(0)`

now returns 1, which means`percent(0)`

now returns 0% (#50).`scale_continuous()`

uses a more correct check for numeric values.NaN is correctly recognised as a missing value by the gradient palettes (ggplot2#1482).

`rescale()`

preserves missing values in input when the range of`x`

is (effectively) 0 (ggplot2#985).Continuous colour palettes now use

`colour_ramp()`

instead of`colorRamp()`

. This only supports interpolation in Lab colour space, but is hundreds of times faster.

`date_format()`

gains an option to specify time zone (#51).`dollar_format()`

is now more flexible and can add either prefixes or suffixes for different currencies (#53). It gains a`negative_parens`

argument to show negative values as`($100)`

and now passes missing values through unchanged (#40, @dougmitarotonda).New

`ordinal_format()`

generates ordinal numbers (1st, 2nd etc) (@aaronwolen, #55)New

`unit_format()`

makes it easier to add units to labels, optionally scaling (@ThierryO, 46)New

`wrap_format()`

function to wrap character vectors to a desired width. (@jimhester, #37).

New color scaling functions

`col_numeric()`

,`col_bin()`

,`col_quantile()`

, and`col_factor()`

. These functions provide concise ways to map continuous or categorical values to color spectra.New

`colour_ramp()`

function for performing color interpolation in the CIELAB color space (like`grDevices::colorRamp(space = 'Lab')`

, but much faster).

`boxcox_trans()`

returns correct value when p is close to zero (#31).`dollar()`

and`percent()`

both correctly return a zero length string for zero length input (@BrianDiggs, #35)`brewer_pal()`

gains a`direction`

argument to easily invert the order of colours (@jiho, #36).`show_col()`

has additional options to showcase colors better (@jiho, #52)Relaxed tolerance in

`zero_range()`

to`.Machine$double.eps * 1000`

(#33).

Eliminate stringr dependency.

Fix outstanding errors in R CMD check

`floor_time`

calls`to_time`

, but that function was moved into a function so it was no longer available in the scales namespace. Now`floor_time`

has its own copy of that function. (Thanks to Stefan Novak)Color palettes generated by

`brewer_pal`

no longer give warnings when fewer than 3 colors are requested. (Winston Chang)`abs_area and`

rescale_max`functions have been added, for scaling the area of points to be proportional to their value. These are used by`

scale_size_area` in ggplot2.

`zero_range`

has improved behaviour thanks to Brian Diggs.`brewer_pal`

complains if you give it an incorrect palette type. (Fixes #15, thanks to Jean-Olivier Irisson)`shape_pal`

warns if asked for more than 6 values. (Fixes #16, thanks to Jean-Olivier Irisson)`time_trans`

gains an optional argument`tz`

to specify the time zone to use for the times. If not specified, it will be guess from the first input with a non-null time zone.`date_trans`

and`time_trans`

now check that their inputs are of the correct type. This prevents ggplot2 scales from silently giving incorrect outputs when given incorrect inputs.Change the default breaks algorithm for

`cbreaks()`

and`trans_new()`

. Previously it was`pretty_breaks()`

, and now it's`extended_breaks()`

, which uses the`extended()`

algorithm from the labeling package.fixed namespace problem with

`fullseq`

`suppressWarnings`

from`train_continuous`

so zero-row or all infinite data frames don't potentially cause problems.check for zero-length colour in

`gradient_n_pal`

added

`extended_breaks`

which implements an extension to Wilkinson's labelling approach, as implemented in the`labeling`

package. This should generally produce nicer breaks than`pretty_breaks`

.`alpha`

can now preserve existing alpha values if`alpha`

is missing.`log_breaks`

always gives breaks evenly spaced on the log scale, never evenly spaced on the data scale. This will result in really bad breaks for some ranges (e.g 0.5-0.6), but you probably shouldn't be using log scales in that situation anyway.

`censor`

and`squish`

gain`only.finite`

argument and default to operating only on finite values. This is needed for ggplot2, and reflects the use of Inf and -Inf as special values.`bounds`

functions now`force`

evaluation of range to avoid bug with S3 method dispatch inside primitive functions (e.g.`[`

)Simplified algorithm for

`discrete_range`

that is robust to`stringsAsFactors`

global option. Now, the order of a factor will only be preserved if the full factor is the first object seen, and all subsequent inputs are subsets of the levels of the original factor.`scientific`

ensures output is always in scientific format and off the specified number of significant digits.`comma`

ensures output is never in scientific format. (Fixes #7)Another tweak to

`zero_range`

to better detect when a range has zero length. (Fixes #6)
