  • Removed workaround for old mlr3 versions.

mlr3learners 0.5.1

CRAN release: 2021-11-19

  • eval_metric() is now explicitly set for xgboost learners to silence a deprecation warning.
  • Improved how the added hyperparameter mtry.ratio is converted to mtry to simplify tuning.
  • Multiple updates to hyperparameter sets.

mlr3learners 0.5.0

CRAN release: 2021-08-17

  • Fixed the internal encoding of the positive class for classification learners based on glm and glmnet (#199). While predictions in previous versions were correct, the estimated coefficients had the wrong sign.
  • Reworked handling of lambda and s for glmnet learners (#197).
  • Learners based on glmnet now support to extract selected features (#200).
  • Learners based on kknn now raise an exception if k >= n (#191).
  • Learners based on ranger now come with the virtual hyperparameter mtry.ratio to set the hyperparameter mtry based on the proportion of features to use.
  • Multiple learners now support the extraction of the log-likelihood (via method $loglik()), allowing to calculate measures like AIC or BIC in mlr3 (#182).

mlr3learners 0.4.5

CRAN release: 2021-03-18

  • Fixed SVM learners for new release of package e1071.

mlr3learners 0.4.4

CRAN release: 2021-03-15

  • Changed hyperparameters of all learners to make them run sequentially in their defaults. The new function set_threads() in mlr3 provides a generic way to set the respective hyperparameter to the desired number of parallel threads.
  • Added survival:aft objective to surv.xgboost
  • Removed hyperparameter predict.all from ranger learners (#172).

mlr3learners 0.4.3

CRAN release: 2020-12-08

mlr3learners 0.4.2

CRAN release: 2020-11-11

  • Fixed a bug in the survival random forest LearnerSurvRanger.

mlr3learners 0.4.1

CRAN release: 2020-10-07

  • Disabled some glmnet tests on solaris.
  • Removed dependency on orphaned package bibtex.

mlr3learners 0.4.0

CRAN release: 2020-09-25

  • Fixed a potential label switch in classif.glmnet and classif.cv_glmnet with predict_type set to "prob" (#155).
  • Fixed learners from package glmnet to be more robust if the order of features has changed between train and predict.

mlr3learners 0.3.0

CRAN release: 2020-08-29

  • The $model slot of the {kknn} learner now returns a list containing some information which is being used during the predict step. Before, the slot was empty because there is no training step for kknn.
  • Compact in-memory representation of R6 objects to save space when saving mlr3 objects via saveRDS(), serialize() etc.
  • glmnet learners: penalty.factor is a vector param, not a ParamDbl (#141)
  • glmnet: Add params mxitnr and epsnr from glmnet v4.0 update
  • Add learner surv.glmnet (#130)
  • Suggest package mlr3proba (#144)
  • Add learner surv.xgboost (#135)
  • Add learner surv.ranger (#134)

mlr3learners 0.2.0

CRAN release: 2020-04-22

  • Split glmnet learner into cv_glmnet and glmnet (#99)
  • glmnet learners: Add predict.gamma and newoffset arg (#98)
  • We now test that all learners can be constructed without parameters.
  • A new custom “Paramtest” which lives inst/paramtest was added. This test checks against the arguments of the upstream train & predict functions and ensures that all parameters are implemented in the respective mlr3 learner (#96).
  • A lot missing parameters were added to learners. See #96 for a complete list.
  • Add parameter interaction_constraints to {xgboost} learners (#97).


  • Added learner classif.multinom from package nnet.
