We have CRANed the latest version of Reol again (http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/Reol/index.html). This update includes some bug fixes, some new functions and options within functions, new data files for running some simple package examples, and a new package vignette that addresses the updates.
Some of the new functions include gathering IUCN statuses, new matching functions to help plotting, and functions that gather parent and offspring taxa. Our downloading functions have also changed to allow data to be read in as an R object rather than having to download files. This also means that every function downstream changed a bit to be able to read in either kind of data (files or objects). Hopefully this transition is seamless to users, but if any errors should present themselves, please feel free to contact one of us. Our R-Forge site will continue to accept bug tracking or new function requests! Happy EOLing!
