modelsummary 1.4.2
CRAN release: 20230825
New:
 Minimal support for
Typst
output, with autodetection in Quarto documents. 
strip
argument indvnames
. 
s.value
statistic is now available wheneverp.value
is available. See Greenland (2019). 
datasummary_skim()
now includes histograms ingt
tables.
Bugs:
 GOF term names get escaped in LaTeX. Thanks to @shreyasgm for reviving Issue #546.
 Conflict with
furrr
generated errors for some models. Thanks to @sammo3182 for Issue #647.
modelsummary 1.4.1
CRAN release: 20230519
New:

fmt_sci()
can now be used in thefmt
argument for rounding with scientific notation.
Bugs:
 Group separators respect
add_rows
withshape="rbind"
. Thanks to @lrose1 for Report #626.  Bad column with horizontal models in
shape
and grouped estimates. Thanks to @iagopssjd for Report #631. 
coef_rename=TRUE
bug with grouped estimates. Thanks to @iagopssjd for Report #631.  Upstream issue #881 in
parameters
meant thatvcov
was no longer used for confidence intervals.
modelsummary 1.4.0
CRAN release: 20230426
 Builtin support for markdown tables.
 Package no longer depends on
kableExtra
. Recommends an additional install for other formats.  Persistent configuration of default output format:
config_modelsummary(factory_default = "gt")

shape = "rcollapse"
andshape = "rbind"

glance_custom()
can drop GOF by assigningNA
: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/75215355/assigningdifferentcoefficientnamesandgoodnessoffitstatisticstodifferen  When a
statistic
is not available,modelsummary
prints an empty cell instead of returning an error.  “\label{tab:something}” works in
title
even whenescape=TRUE
 Multiple
fixest_multi
objects supported. 
options(modelsummary_future = FALSE)
disablesfuture
parallelism.
Bug fixes:

statistic=NULL
is now respected whenshape="rbind"
. Thanks to Panos Mavros for report #620. 
get_estimates()
supportsvcov
string shortcuts and formulas. Thanks to @ethanscarl for report #605.  Quarto and Rmarkdown documents include
situnix
in header automatically for decimal alignement withalign="ddd"

escape
is now respected bymodelsummary
withshape="rbind"
. Thanks to @chickymonkeys for report #622.
modelsummary 1.3.0
CRAN release: 20230105
Breaking change:
 The default column label style in
modelsummary()
has changed from “Model 1” to “(1)”. The benefits are: labels are no longer in English by default; use less horizontal space; eliminate the “Model” redundancy. Unfortunately, this could break code in some edge cases where users rely on column names to manipulate tables. The old behavior can be restored by calling:options(modelsummary_model_labels="model")
New features:

shape="rbind"
to stack multiple regression tables and create “panels” with labelled groups of models. 
fmt
: new helper functions for different formatting styles
fmt = fmt_decimal(2)
: decimal digits 
fmt = fmt_decimal(digits = 2, pdigits = 4)
: decimal digits with p valuespecific setting 
fmt = fmt_sprintf("%.3f")
:sprintf()
decimal 
fmt = fmt_sprintf("%.3e")
:sprintf()
scientific 
fmt = fmt_significant(3)
: significant digits 
fmt = fmt_statistic("estimate" = 2, "std.error" = 3)
: statisticspecific formatting 
fmt = fmt_term("(Intercept)" = 2, "hp" = 3)
: termspecific formatting 
fmt = fmt_identity()
: raw values

 New styles for default column labels in
modelsummary
, such as Roman Numerals or letters in parentheses. Set the style with a global option:
options(modelsummary_model_labels = "roman")
 Supported styles: “model”, “arabic”, “letters”, “roman”, “(arabic)”, “(letters)”, “(roman)””
 Set the style with a global option:

modelplot(draw = FALSE)
now returns ap.value
column. This allows conditional aesthetics (see themodelplot
vignette).  Better integration with the
marginaleffects
package.
Bugs:
 Some
fixest
models returns useless “group.x” and “group.y” columns. Isse #591. Thanks to Adam Altmejd for the report.
modelsummary 1.2.0
CRAN release: 20221126
Breaking change:
 With the
shape
andoutput="dataframe"
arguments, there always used to be agroup
column. Now, this column has the same name as the variable in theshape
formula (“response”, “component”, etc.).
New features:

shape
can include multiple groups. 
coef_rename
can be an unnamed vector of length equal to the number of terms in the final table, obtained aftercoef_map
andcoef_omit
are applied and models are merged. 
coef_omit
accepts numeric indices. Positive values: coefficients to omit. Negative values: coefficients to keep. 
datasummary_skim
: Increased maximum number of variables to 250.  Quarto notebooks compile to Word and Markdown automatically.
Bug fixes:
 Order of notes preserved in some output format (Issue #577)
modelsummary 1.1.0
CRAN release: 20221020
Breaking change:
 Requires
siunitx
version 3.0.25 LaTeX package.  The
title
argument now respects theescape
argument for allkableExtra
output formats. This can break tables in which users manually escaped titles.
New features:
 “d” is accepted for decimalalignment in the
align
argument for alloutput
formats.modelsummary(mod, align = "ld")
 New
update_modelsummary()
function makes it easy to install the dev versions ofmodelsummary
and its dependencies (mostly useful for Vincent and people who report bugs).  Rounding: display at least one significant digit by default.
 Automatic renaming of
haven
labels inmodelsummary()
,datasummary()
,datasummary_skim()
 Allow
output = "filename.csv"
 Allow
output = "filename.xlsx"

add_columns
argument supported inmodelsummary()

datasummary_balance
supports thestars
argument.  Allow stars and confidence intervals with
align = "d"
column.
Bug fixes:
 In some locales, the HTML minus sign created problems in the output. We only use it in “known” locales.
 Many minor bug fixes
modelsummary 1.0.1
CRAN release: 20220713

shape
argument accepts interactions with the colon “:” character. This combines two columns into one, which can be useful to display terms and group names in a single column.  Parallelization using
parallel::mclapply
. See?modelsummary

modelsummary
no longer computes confidence intervals when not necessary, which can save some time. Also see:conf_level=NULL
 Added log likelihood to GOF for lm and glm models.
 Removed extraneous warnings
 Bug fixes
modelsummary 1.0.0
CRAN release: 20220629
This first major release accompanies the publication of an article in the Journal of Statistical Software:
ArelBundock, Vincent (2022). “modelsummary: Data and Model Summaries in R.” Journal of Statistical Software, 103(1), 123. doi:10.18637/jss.v103.i01 https://doi.org/10.18637/jss.v103.i01.’
If you like modelsummary
, please cite the JSS article and tell your friends about it.
Minor changes:

gof_map="all"
includes all available statistics.gof_map="none"
excludes all statistics.  Bug fixes
modelsummary 0.11.1
CRAN release: 20220611
 Better printout for term names in mixedeffects models
 {brms} and {stanreg} models now extracted with
diagnostic=NULL
andtest=NULL
by default for speed.
modelsummary 0.11.0
CRAN release: 20220606
Breaking changes:

modelsummary_wide
is no longer available. Use theshape
argument ofmodelsummary
instead. 
modelsummary
now uses theeasystats
packages (performance
andparameters
) to extract estimates and goodnessoffit statistics instead ofbroom
. This can be reverted by setting a global option:options(modelsummary_get="broom")
. This change aims to (1) increase consistency across models, (2) improve the developers’ ability to push bug fixes upstream when necessary, and (3) improve support for mixed effects, bayesian, and GAM models. The two main drawbacks are: (a) The set of printed statistics may be slightly different from previous versions ofmodelsummary
(b) The group identifiers used in theshape
formula will also be different for certain models (e.g., innnet::multinom
,y.level
becomesresponse
).
New features:
 The
shape
argument accepts a formula and can reshape information in myriad ways. Deprecates thegroup
argument. Examples:
~ statistic
: statistics are shown horizontally in distinct columns. 
model ~ term
: models in rows and terms in columns. 
term + y.level + statistic ~ model
: grouped coefficients for multivariate outcome innnet::multinom

y.level ~ model
: partial match is the same as the previous formula

 Format distinct statistics differently by passing a named list to
fmt
:modelsummary(mod, fmt = list(estimate = 2, std.error = 1, rmse = 4))
 Use
glue
to apply functions to numeric values by settingfmt = NULL
. Example:modelsummary(model, fmt = NULL, estimate = "{log(estimate)}")
 Update for breaking changes after fixest 0.10.4
Bug fixes:

group_map
rename issue  Residual standard error mistakenly labelled “RMSE” in
lm
models.
