A brand new version of rfoaas is now on CRAN. It shadows the 0.1.3 release of FOAAS just how an earlier 0.1.2 had done (but there was something not quite right at the server backend which we coded around with an interim release 0.1.2.1; neither one of these was ever released to CRAN).
The rfoaas package provides an interface for R to the most excellent FOAAS service–which provides a modern, scalable and RESTful web service for the frequent need to tell someone to f$#@ off. Release 0.1.3 of FOAAS brings support for filters which the initial support going to the absolutely outstanding shoutcloud.io service. This can be enabled by adding
filter="shoutcloud" as an argument to any of the access functions. And thanks to shoutcloud.io, the result will be LOUD AND CLEAR.
