v1.3.1 is now available on CRAN.

This is a fairly significant update, with several important enhancements and bug fixes.

• The default locations for simulation inputs, outputs, cache, and module paths have changed and can be easily set via new option spades.inputPath, spades.outputPath, spades.cachePath, and spades.modulePath, respectively.
• The spades.modulesRepo option was renamed to spades.moduleRepo.
• Improved simulation debugging: the debug argument in spades can now accept any expression as a character string, and debug = TRUE only prints the current event (the old behaviour can be restored using debug = "simList")
• Improved useability for module developers, including:

• New RStudio addin to simplify creation of new modules;
• Modules with lots of code can be split into several files: put helper functions etc. into .R files located in the module’s R/ subdirectory;
• New tools for performing heuristic optimization using pattern orientated modelling (see ?POM)
• Improved support of parallel computatations

For a complete list of changes, see the package’s NEWS file.
