What Is New in genieclust

genieclust 1.0.y (under development)

  • [GENERAL] A paper on the genieclust package has appeared in SoftwareX, see https://doi.org/10.1016/j.softx.2021.100722.

  • [Python] plot_scatter now uses a more accessible default palette (from R 4.0.0).

genieclust 1.0.0 (2021-04-22)

  • [R] Use mlpack instead of RcppMLPACK (#72). This package is merely suggested, not dependent upon.

genieclust 0.9.8 (2021-01-08)

  • [Python] Require Python >= 3.7 (implied by numpy).

  • [Python] Require nmslib.

  • [R] Use RcppMLPACK directly; remove dependency on emstreeR.

  • [R] Use tinytest for unit testing instead of testthat.

genieclust 0.9.4 (2020-07-31)

  • [BUGFIX] [R] Fix build errors on Solaris.

genieclust 0.9.3 (2020-07-25)

  • [BUGFIX] [Python] Add code coverage CI. Fix some minor inconsistencies. Automate the bdist build chain.

  • [R] Update DESCRIPTION to meet the CRAN policies.

genieclust 0.9.2 (2020-07-22)

  • [BUGFIX] [Python] Fix broken build script for OS X with no OpenMP.

genieclust 0.9.1 (2020-07-18)

  • [GENERAL] The package has been completely rewritten. The core functionality is now implemented in C++ (with OpenMP).

  • [GENERAL] Clustering with respect to HDBSCAN*-like mutual reachability distances is supported.

  • [GENERAL] The parallelised Jarnik-Prim algorithm now supports on-the-fly distance computations. Euclidean minimum spanning tree can be determined with mlpack, which is much faster in low-dimensional spaces.

  • [R] R version is now available.

  • [Python] [Experimental] The GIc algorithm proposed by Anna Cena in her 2018 PhD thesis is added.

  • [Python] Approximate version based on nearest neighbour graphs produced by nmslib is added.

genieclust 0.1a2 (2018-05-23)

  • [Python] Initial PyPI release.
