Gains a suite of new functions for working with NOAA GHCND data, including ghcnd(), ghcnd_clear_cache(), ghcnd_countries(), ghcnd_search(), ghcnd_splitvars() ghcnd_states(), ghcnd_stations(), and ghcnd_version() (#85) (#86) (#87) (#88) (#94)
New contributor Adam Erickson (@DougFirErickson)
All NOAA buoy functions put back into the package. They were previously
on a separate branch in the GitHub repository. (#37) (#71) (#100)
Minor adjustments to isd() functions, including better man file.
Cleaner package imports - importing mostly only functions used in dependencies.
Startup message gone.
callopts parameter changed to ... in function swdi().
More robust test suite.
ncdc() requires that users do their own paging - previously this was done internally (#77)
Many dependencies dropped, simplifying package: RCurl, maptools, stringr, digest.
A few new ones added: dplyr, tidyr.
DEPRECATED AND DEFUNCT
All erddap functions now defunct - see the package rerddap,
a general purpose R client for ERDDAP servers. (#51) (#73) (#90) (#95)
The extent function in noaa_stations() used to accept either a bounding
box or a point defined by lat/long. The lat/long option dropped as it required
two packages, one of which is a pain to install for many users (#98) (#99)
