digest 0.5.2

March 15, 2012

(This article was first published on Thinking inside the box , and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

A new version of the digest package (which generates hash function summaries for arbitrary (and possibly nested) R objects using any of the standard md5, sha-1, sha-256 or crc32 algorithms) is now on CRAN.

Murray Stokely noticed a corner case where a file that was inaccessible lead to a segmentation fault. Thanks to his patch, this is now caught and flagged. He even added a test for it and fixed another one of my idioms. Nice work, so keep the patches coming folks :)

CRANberries provides the usual summary of changes to version 0.5.1.

As usual, our package is available via the R-Forge page leading to svn and tarball access, my digest page and the local directory here.
