New version of devtools: 0.8
We’re pleased to announce a new version of devtools, the package that makes R package development easy. The main features in this version are:
- A complete rewrite of the code loading system which simulates namespace loading much more accurately – this means using
load_all is much closer to installing and loading the package. It also compiles and loads C, C++ and Fortran code in the
- All devtools command now only take a path to a package and default to using the working directory if no path is supplied.
- All R commands are run in
--vanilla mode and print the console command that’s run.
- Install github now allows you to install from pull request and private repositories.
Plus much, much more – for a complete list of changes, see the NEWS on github. If you’re interested in package development with devtools you may also want to join the rdevtools mailing list.
