Okay, so it's been quite a while since I provided an entry associated with oro.nifti. That doesn't mean things haven't moved on... they have. Let's just say I've been occupied. One of the biggest changes to oro.nifti recently has been the "audit trail" is not turned off by default. If you want to take advantage of this feature you must explicitly turn it on using the commands
R> options("niftiAuditTrail" = TRUE)
This modification was a consequence of severing the dependence on the XML package, since it was only required if one wanted to keep track of the operations performed during the data analysis (it is now only suggested). Please see the vignette for more information about the audit trail feature. Otherwise, minor improvements have been made and updates so that the package works with the most current version of R (3.0.2 at the time of this blog entry).
