R Project Updates

Updates from R Core:

  • Indexing a list using dollar and empty string (l$"") returns NULL.

  • Some as.data.frame() methods, notably the matrix one, are now more careful in not accepting duplicated or NA row names, and by default produce unique non-NA row names. This is based on row.names(x, make.names = *) <- rNms where make.names is a new logical, with back compatible default.
