R Project Updates

Updates from R Core:

  • Setting the LC_ALL category in Sys.setlocale() invalidates any cached locale-specific day/month names and the AM/PM indicator for strptime() (as setting LC_TIME has since R 3.1.0).

  • system and system2 now allow to specify a timeout (this feature is currently experimental and subject to change).

  • within(<list>, rm(x1, x2)) works correctly again.

  • regexec(pattern, text, *) now also applies as.character(.) to its first two arguments, as documented.

  • The list method of within() gets an option keepAttrs = FALSE for speed up.
