• Fixed issue with gsub substitution of x in original brms non-linear formulas, and added various tests (fa588fb).
• Addition of herbicide data (2b13ef5).

• streamlined check_* functions for negative predictors vectors – no error anymore (via check_data), now drop models with informative message (via check_models) (f134311).

• If link functions are not specified in bnec, then the default link function is used; previous versions of bayesnec used the identity link.

• An additional family has been added betabinomial2 for over dispersered binomial data.

• The package supports using link functions for generalized modelling, which appears to be more stable and is also in line with more typical generalised modelling approaches.

• There are multiple options for model weights calculation from the loo package. The default is “pseudobma BB”.

• There is now a compare_posterior function that also includes a bootstrapping procedure. This can be used to compare model fits across different datasets, or even different model sets for the same dataset (ie nec v ecx models). Please see the vignette for examples of usage.

• There is a vignette detailing the models available in bayesnec. Note that not all models are suitable for all families, and also depending if link functions are used.

• A new check_chains function has been added to allow chain plotting in base R and that works more smoothly with plotting chains for multiple fits for bayesmanec objects.
