# betapart 1.5.6

### Modified
function `decay.model()`

to implement the block permutation
described in Martínez-Santalla et al 2022 (J. Biogeogr.) for assessing
the significance of the distance decay model

# betapart 1.5.5

### A
bug of functional.betapart.core() was fixed to run it in parallel with
multi = TRUE

# betapart 1.5.4

### Updated
functional.betapart.core.pairwise() to get vertice coordinates in the
output ‘details’

# betapart 1.5.3

- the libraries doParallel/parallel were replaced by doSNOW/snow for
parallel computations.

## new features

### functional.betapart.core()
was updated. Options can be passed to qhull to prevent some crashes and
a progress bar can be displayed.

### When
setting multi=TRUE, the function stop earlier if the number of
communities is too important.

### New
fonction to control options passed to qhull for convexhull
estimation:

### New
function to compute rapidly pair-wise dissimilarty matrices:

`functional.betapart.core.pairwise()`

### functional.beta.pair
was updated to integrate functional.betapart.core.pairwise

# betapart 1.5.2

## New features

### Updated
functional.betapart.core() to allow internal parallel computing

### New
function to customize parameters for the internal parallel computing
:

# betapart 1.5.1

## New features

### Updated
functional.betapart.core() to allow parallel computing

# betapart 1.5.0

## New features

### New
functions to fit, plot and bootstrap distance-decay patterns

`betapart 1.5.0`

includes three new functions:

`decay.model()`

fits a negative-exponential or mower
law function describing the decay of assemblage similarity with sptatial
distance.

`plot.decay()`

allows plotting the curves fitted with
`decay.model()`

.

`boot.coefs.decay()`

bootstraps the parameters of the
functions fitted with `decay.model()`

.
