# 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()`

.
