print.noquote(x)now always returns its argument
fillhas multiple values, first of which is

installed.packages(noCache = TRUE)incorrectly claimed it would refresh the cache.
installed.packages()did not remove the cached value for a library tree that had been emptied (but would not use the old value, just waste time checking it).
available.packages()has two new arguments which control if the values from the per-session repository cache are used (default true, as before) and if so how old cached values can be to be used (default one hour).
These arguments can be passed from
update.packages()and functions calling that: to enable this
upgrade()method no longer ignores its
...argument but passes it to
...argument to allow arguments (including
noCache) to be passed from
Non-UTF-8 multibyte character sets were not handled properly in source references. (PR#16732)
