• Bug fix that allows nearest matching method to handle categorical (or categorical-like) covariates.
• Needed to drop features that have 0 width after trimming in bootRanges.
• Made the validity test for bootRanges only look for iter.
• Change to factor-Rle output for bootRanges to simplify the downstream plyranges.
• nullranges is released on Bioconductor! the package offers the creation of null genomic feature sets, either through sampling from a pool in order to match covariates with a particular focal set, or via block bootstrapping of features optionally with respect to a genome segmentation. Critically, nullranges is designed as a modular package, solely for the purpose of generating null feature sets, and to be used in conjunction with another package for calculating overlaps, such as GenomicRanges or plyranges.
