R Project Updates

Updates from R Core:

  • The “default” ("lm" etc) methods of vcov() have gained new optional argument complete = TRUE which makes the vcov() methods more consistent with the coef() methods in the case of singular designs. The former behavior is now achieved by vcov(*, complete=FALSE).

  • The BioC extra repository which was dropped from BioC 3.6 has been removed from setRepositories(). This changes the mapping for 6-8 used by setRepositories(ind=).
