R Project Updates
Updates from R Core:
The environment variable
R_MAX_VZISEcan now be used to specify the maximal vector heap size. On macOS, unless specified by this environment variable, the maximal vector heap size is set to the maximum on 16GB and the available physical memory. This is to avoid having the
Rprocess killed when macOS over-commits memory.
methods:::bind_activation()is defunct now; it typically has been unneeded for years.
the undocumented “hidden”
.__H__.rbindare deprecated, correspondingly.
sum(x1,x2,..,x<N>)with many or long logical and integer vectors no longer overflows (and returns
NAwith a warning), but returns
doublenumbers now in such cases.
Single components of POSIXlt objects can now be extracted and replaced via
[indexing with 2 indices.
S3 method lookup now searches the namespace registry after the top level environment of the calling environment.

3) People who use R like to show off
