R Project Updates
Updates from R Core:
Reverted unintended change in behavior of
on.exitexpressions introduced by stack unwinding changes in R 3.3.0.
approxfun()also work for long vectors.
dump()) are more useful for S4 objects;
dput()now using the same internal C code (instead of its previous imperfect workaround R code). More user visibly,
dput(), etc now print the
names()information only once, using the more readable
(tag = value)syntax. These functions got a new (partly experimental) control option via
"nice_names"which when set (e.g. as part of
"all") also use the
(tag = value)syntax for atomic vectors.
(1:n)[-n]no longer segfaults for
n <- 2.2e9(on a platform with enough RAM).
R_check_class_etc()now also consider non-direct super classes and hence return a match in more cases. This e.g., fixes behaviour of derived classes in package
