Note about FSA and Introduction to Fisheries Analysis with R book

Versions of FSA beginning with v0.9.0 may no longer work as shown in the IFAR book. Many functions have not changed from when the book was published, but some have. Thus, you will need to install an FSA version before v0.9.0 to be assured that functions work as described in the IFAR book.
