A new version of RcppAPT — our interface from R to the C++ library behind the awesome apt, apt-get, apt-cache, … commands and their cache powering Debian, Ubuntu and the like — arrived on CRAN yesterday.

We added a few more functions in order to compute on the package graph. A concrete example is shown in this vignette which determines the (minimal) set of remaining Debian packages requiring a rebuild under R 3.4.* to update their .C() and .Fortran() registration code. It has been used for the binNMU request #868558.

As we also added a NEWS file, its (complete) content covering all releases follows below.
