A new minor release of the anytime package arrived on CRAN this morning. This is the thirteenth release, and the first since July as the package has gotten feature-complete.

anytime is a very focused package aiming to do just one thing really well: to convert anything in integer, numeric, character, factor, ordered, … format to either POSIXct or Date objects – and to do so without requiring a format string. See the anytime page, or the GitHub README.md for a few examples.

This release adds a nice new vignette, solidifies some code in response to the rchk tests by Tomas Kalibera and updates some tests. We had some last-minute issues with the vignette on Windows, and Josh Ulrich was very helpful with some additional tests. For now, the new vignette is added pre-built.

#### Changes in anytime version 0.3.2 (2018-11-05)

• Added a new vignette introducing the anytime package. Seemingly it cannot be compiled on Windows so included prebuilt.

• Some more tests for anydate were added along with so code coverage tags.

• The C++ code was robustified in two places to not trigger rchk warnings (#79).

• Three unit test files which fail on Solaris are now skipping this os as we cannot reproduce or test on this OS (#80).

Courtesy of CRANberries, there is a comparison to the previous release. More information is on the anytime page.
