dplyr 0.1.2

2014-02-25 Hadley Wickham
We’re pleased to announce a new minor version of dplyr. This fixes a number of bugs that crashed R, and considerably improves the functionality of select(). You can now use named arguments to rename existing variables, and use new functions starts_with(), ends_with(), contains(), matches() and num_range() to select variables based on their names. Finally, select() now makes a shallow copy, substantially reducing its memory impact. I’ve also added the summarize() alias for people from countries who don’t spell correctly ;) Read more →

testthat 0.8 (and 0.8.1)

2014-02-25 Hadley Wickham
We’re pleased to announce a new major version of testthat. Version 0.8 comes with a new recommended structure for storing your tests. To better meet CRAN recommended practices, we now recommend that tests live in tests/testthat, instead of inst/tests. This makes it possible for users to choose whether or not to install tests. With this new structure, you’ll need to use test_check() instead of test_packages() in the test file (usually tests/testthat. Read more →

Introducing dplyr

2014-01-17 Hadley Wickham
dplyr is a new package which provides a set of tools for efficiently manipulating datasets in R. dplyr is the next iteration of plyr, focussing on only data frames. dplyr is faster, has a more consistent API and should be easier to use. There are three key ideas that underlie dplyr: Your time is important, so Romain Francois has written the key pieces in Rcpp to provide blazing fast performance. Read more →

roxygen2 3.0.0

2013-12-09 Hadley Wickham
We’re pleased to announce a new version of roxygen2. The biggest news is that you can painlessly document your S4 classes, S4 methods and RC classes with roxygen2 - you can safely remove workarounds that used @alias and @usage, and simply rely on roxygen2 to do the right thing. Roxygen2 is also much smarter when it comes to S3: you can remove existing uses of @method, and can replace @S3method with @export. Read more →
