R Project Updates
Updates from R Core:

merge()
gains new optionno.dups
and by default suffixes the second of two duplicated column names, thanks to a proposal by Scott Ritchie (and Gabe Becker). 
NAMEDMAX
has been raised to 3 to allow protection of intermediate results from (usually illadvised) assignments in arguments toBUILTIN
functions. PackageC
code usingSET_NAMED
may need to be revised. 
The undocumented
hidden
objects.__H__.cbind
and.__H__.rbind
in packagebase
are deprecated (in favour ofcbind
andrbind
). 
Arithmetic with data frames gives a data frame for
^
(which previously gave a numeric matrix). 
read.table()
with nondefault separator now supports quotes following a nonwhitespace, matching the behavior ofscan()
. 
Writing R Extensions
now documents theR_tryCatch
,R_tryCatchError
, andR_UnwindProtect
functions.
