    background of LoCoH-xy and LoCoH-hullset objects (including new
    argument for specifying the display colors, tiff.col)
  * lxy.exp.mov(): added support for displaying background raster images
    in an animation of a LoCoH-xy object; new argument for date label
    fill color; support for mp4 encoding (h.264); and coloring the
    active point by the hour-of-day
  * lxy.exp.csv(): Added /dir /argument
  * readpartgdal: Added a check for the area of overlap and number of
    bands in a raster
  * Corrected default title for plots of time-use isopleths
  * Package /rgdal /moved from 'Imports' to 'Suggests' to simplify
  * New sections & updates to the tutorial
