o 'bracketing', 'gridSearch' and 'restartOpt' now support distributed
evaluation of 'fun' via 'clusterApply' from the 'snow' package. As a
side effect, the interface of 'gridSearch' and 'restartOpt' has
changed: instead of an option 'multicore', they now have an argument
'method', which can be 'loop', 'multicore' or 'snow'. See the
documentation of these functions.
o for consistency, the 'method' argument of 'bracketing' expects
'vectorised' rather than 'vectorise' (but both work, and also the
o substantial revision of documentation/examples
o more intelligible error/warning messages in 'bracketing' added
o small changes in vignettes 'Robust Regression with Particle Swarm
Optimisation and Differential Evolution' and 'Repairing solutions'
o file 'multicore.R' was moved to subdirectory inst/unitTests;
thus, it is installed with the package. Some tests for package
'snow' were added.
o more tests added (subdirectory unitTests); in particular, tests are
more comprehensively commented now
