`metaplus`

(*metaplus*),`glht`

(*multcomp*),`glmm`

(*glmm*),`manova`

(*stats*),`crq`

and`crqs`

(*quantreg*)- Improved support for models from the
*rms*package.

- Improved parameters formatting for ordered factors in
`model_parameters()`

(and`format_parameters()`

). - Argument
`df_method`

can now also be applied to GLMs, to allow calculation of confidence intervals based on Wald-approximation, not profiled confidence intervals. This speeds up computation of CIs for models fit to large data sets. - Improved
`select_parameters()`

for mixed models, and revised docs and associated vignette.

- Allow
`threshold`

to be passed to`efa_to_cfa()`

when the model is from`factor_analysis()`

. - Allow correlation matrix to be passed to
`factor_analysis()`

. - Fix CRAN check issues.
- Fix issue in
`model_parameters()`

for models with non-estimable parameters or statistics. - Fix issue in
`model_parameters()`

for*plm*models with only one parameter. - Fix issue in
`check_heterogeneity()`

in case no predictor would cause heterogeneity bias. - Make sure
*clubSandwich*is used conditionally in all places, to properly pass CRAN checks.

`print()`

method. - now also simulate parameters from the dispersion model for
*glmmTMB*objects. - gets a
`verbose`

argument, to show or hide warnings and messages.

- fix issue with rank deficient models.

- We changed the computation of confidence intervals or standard errors, so these are now based on a t-distribution with degrees of freedom and not normal distribution assuming infinite degrees of freedom. This was implemented for most functions before and only affects few functions (like
`equivalence_test()`

or CIs for standardized parameters from`model_parameters()`

when standardization method was`"posthoc"`

).

`averaging`

(*MuMIn*),`bayesx`

(*R2BayesX*),`afex_aov`

`check_heterogeneity()`

as a small helper to find variables that have a within- and between-effect related to a grouping variable (and thus, may result in heterogeneity bias, see this vignette).

`equivalence_test()`

- gains a
`rule`

argument, so equivalence testing can be based on different approaches. - for mixed models gains an
`effect`

argument, to perform equivalence testing on random effects. - gains a
`p_values`

argument, to calculate p-values for the equivalence test. - now supports more frequentist model objects.

`describe_distribution()`

- now works on grouped data frames.

with`standardize = "basic"`

or`standardize = "posthoc"`

. `model_parameters.merMod()`

no longer passes`...`

down to bootstrap-functions (i.e. when`bootstrap = TRUE`

), as this might conflict with`lme4::bootMer()`

.- For ordinal models (like
`MASS::polr()`

or`ordinal::clm()`

), a`Component`

column is added, indicating intercept categories (`"alpha"`

) and estimates (`"beta"`

). - The
`select`

-argument from`print.parameters_model()`

now gets a`"minimal"`

-option as shortcut to print coefficients, confidence intervals and p-values only.

for`aov()`

gains a`type`

-argument to compute type-1, type-2 or type-3 sums of squares.`model_parameters()`

argument, to return standardized parameters from the posterior distribution.- Improved
`print()`

method for`model_parameters()`

for nested`aov()`

(repeated measurements). - You can now control whether
`demean()`

should add attributes to indicate within- and between-effects. This is only relevant for the`print()`

-method of`model_parameters()`

.

- Fixed
`model_parameters()`

for`anova()`

from*lmerTest*models.

-argument.

. This should now work for more models than before. - Improved accuracy of
`ci.merMod()`

for`method = "satterthwaite"`

and`method = "kenward"`

. `select_parameters()`

for*stanreg*models, which was temporarily removed due to the CRAN removal of package**projpred**, is now re-implemented.

`dof_betwithin()`

to compute degrees of freedom based on a between-within approximation method (and related to that,`p_value_*()`

and`se_*()`

for this method were added as well).`random_parameters()`

that returns information about the random effects such as variances, R2 or ICC.`closest_component()`

as a small helper that returns the component index for each variable in a data frame that was used in`principal_components()`

- Fix CRAN check issues, caused by removal of package ‘projpred’.

- The column for degrees of freedom in
`model_parameters()`

to`df_error`

for regression model objects, because these degrees of freedom actually were not always referring to*residuals*- we consider`df_error`

as a more generic name. `model_parameters()`

for standardized parameters (i.e.`standardize`

is not`NULL`

) only returns standardized coefficients, CI and standard errors (and not both, unstandardized and standardized values).`format_ci()`

was removed and re-implemented in the**insight**package.
