Last year I posted an animation created in R to celebrate the new year, and this year I’ve got a more fabulous animation. Unfortunately our Lord of CRAN (Kurt) has been out of office for several days, so I’m unable to publish my animation package on CRAN as scheduled. Anyway, for those who are curious about the new version the animation package, you can download the version 2.0-0 from my GitHub development page.

The above animation comes from the demo('fireworks') in the R package animation 2.0-0. Thanks for the contribution of Weicheng Zhu.

Another demo I did not mention on this Christmas was demo('Xmas2'):

Thanks for the contribution of Jing Jiao.

There are a whole bunch of new features in the animation package v2.0-0 (this version is a milestone), but I will keep silent for the time being, since it is not published on CRAN yet.
