This release prepares the package for a major improvement, upcoming in the next weeks.

Added warnings to the function

`sobol_matrices`

. The arguments`n`

and`k`

will be substituted by`N`

and`params`

in the next release of the package. The arguments`second`

and`third`

will be substituted by the argument`order`

in the next release of the package.Added warnings to the functions

`plot_uncertainty`

,`plot_scatter`

,`sobol_dummy`

and`sobol_indices`

. The argument`n`

will be substituted by`N`

in the next release of the package.The function

`sobol_ci`

is deprecated. The computation of confidence intervals will be done directly by`sobol_indices`

in the next version of the package.The function

`sobol_ci_dummy`

is deprecated. The computation of confidence intervals for dummy parameters will be done directly by`sobol_dummy`

in the next version of the package.The function

`sobol_replicas`

is deprecated and will be removed in the next version of the package.The test function

`ishigami_Mapply`

would be renamed as`ishigami_Fun`

in the next release of the package.

Corrected a bug in the

`plot_uncertainty`

function. Now the function demands to add the initial sample size`n`

to visualize the model output uncertainty.Corrected some functions to adapt them to data.table 1.12.4.

Added a new function (

`sobol_replicas`

) to easily extract the bootstrapped Sobol’ indices.

New option in the

`sobol_matrices`

function: the option`cluster`

allows to create Sobol’ matrices for clusters of parameters.New test functions added:

Added references to all test functions.

The vignette rendered wrongly in the previous version; now the issue is corrected.

Corrected the following note, found in the CRAN check:

- Namespace in Imports field not imported from: ‘parallel’.

Some functions that were exported to the R package manual are now internal.

- Added a NEWS.md file to track changes to the package.
