R Project Updates
Updates from R Core:
R_check_class_etc()now also consider non-direct super classes and hence return a match in more cases. This e.g., fixes behaviour of derived classes in package
pretty(x, n=<large>)now works better (though it was never meant for large
n); internally it uses the same rounding fuzz (1e-10) as
seq.default()- as it did up to 2010-02-03 when both were 1e-7.
arithmetic with zero-column data frames now works more consistently; issue raised by Bill Dunlap.

Quotes of the Week
My #rstats learning path:— Jesse Maegan (@kierisi) August 18, 2017
1. Install R
2. Install RStudio
3. Google "How do I [THING I WANT TO DO] in R?"
Repeat step 3 ad infinitum.
What #rstats tricks did it take you way too long to learn? One of mine is using readRDS and saveRDS instead of repeatedly loading from CSV— Emily Riederer (@EmilyRiederer) August 19, 2017
