dbplyr 1.1.0

2017-06-27 Hadley Wickham
I’m pleased to announce the release of the dbplyr package, which now contains all dplyr code related to connecting to databases. This shouldn’t affect you-as-a-user much, but it makes dplyr simpler, and makes it easier to release improvements just for database related code. You can install the latest version of dbplyr with: install.packages("dbplyr") DBI and dplyr alignment The biggest change in this release is that dplyr/dbplyr works much more directly with DBI database connections.

dplyr 0.7.0

2017-06-13 Hadley Wickham
I’m pleased to announce that dplyr 0.7.0 is now on CRAN! (This was dplyr 0.6.0 previously; more on that below.) dplyr provides a “grammar” of data transformation, making it easy and elegant to solve the most common data manipulation challenges. dplyr supports multiple backends: as well as in-memory data frames, you can also use it with remote SQL databases. If you haven’t heard of dplyr before, the best place to start is the Data transformation chapter in R for Data Science. Read more →
