Updates from R Core:

optim(*, lower = c(-Inf, -Inf))no longer warns (and switches the method), thanks to a suggestion by John Nash.
axis()gets new option
gap.axis = NAfor specifying a multiplication factor for the minimal “gap” (distance) between axis labels drawn. Its default is
1for labels parallel to the axis, and
0.5for perpendicular ones.
Calls with an S3 class are no longer evaluated when printed, fixing part of PR#17398, thanks to a patch from Lionel Henry.
