Bug fixes

  • The genetic likelihood of the original outbreaker paper was found to contain a minor mistake in accounting for unobserved generations of infection. As of June 7th 2019, outbreaker2 will use the correct genetic likelihood published here.

New features

  • outbreaker2 now accepts epicontacts objects for contact data
  • Contact tracing data can be directed or not by toggling ctd_directed
  • Cyclical consensus trees can now be avoided by using method = 'decyle' in summary.outbreaker_chains
