Over the last week or two I’ve been pushing all my packages to CRAN.

`pathological`

(for working with file paths), `runittotestthat`

(for converting RUnit tests to testthat tests), and `rebus`

(formerly `regex`

, for building regular expressions in a human readable way) all make their CRAN debuts.

`assertive`

, for run-time testing your code has more checks for the state of your R setup (`is_r_devel`

, `is_rstudio`

, `r_has_png_capability`

, and many more), checks for the state of your variables (`are_same_length`

, etc.), and utilities (`dont_stop`

).

`sig`

(for checking that your function signatures are sensible) now works with primitive functions too.

`learningr`

(to accompany the book) has a reference URL fix but is otherwise the same.

I encourage you to take a look at some or all of them, and give me feedback.
