Change log

Changelog since version 3.1.6 for (does not include libraries and modules.)

 * Enhancement: Vulgar Iterator now replaces defunct ElandIterator
 * Enhancement: Eland Extended Iterator roughed in.  Not yet functional.
 * Enhancement: default -dist_type is now set to 1 (Triangle distribution.)
 * Enhancement: Added flag to turn on/off header line in peaks files.
 * Refactor: instead of collecting statistics in 3 locations, now do it all while writing out to peaks file. 
 * Enhancement: Prevent use case where -subpeaks value is higher than -trim value.  While it *could* be a legitimate use case, it's not the desired case (after consultation with Nina), and would require a rewrite to the code handling this case. [resolves IJT-17]
 * Enhancement: -minimum (minPeak) can now be provided as a float value, instead of an integer.  Resolves IJT-12.
 * Bugfix: peak start and peak end were incorrect for case with -subpeaks on, but -trim off.  Relative positions were being supplied by the findmin() function, and not converted to absolute positions.  This has now been fixed.  Resovles IJT-1.
 * bugfix for issue IJT-11.  Now processes chromosomes with unknown names, and gives warning.
 * Enhancement: only check chromosome name once per peaklocator run.
 * BugFix: with subpeaks off, end should still be an absolute coordinate.
 * default value now specified for "scanned_value".  (We aren't pre-scanning anymore, so this needs to be provided.)
 * Genome size must not be zero for Rmode
 * group together all R writing functions.
 * clean up R file, (no more text, and removed grey line at end of graphic.
