spdep 0.7-4 on CRAN

Further, a new vignette shows how nb - neighbour - objects can be created
from sf objects:

regression models can be used with sf objects once the neighbours and
spatial weights have been created.

Finally, the development repository for spdep has migrated to github:


Please let me know if there are negative outcomes of these changes.
