A new version of the RcppAPT package with the R interface 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 earlier today.

RcppAPT allows you to query the (Debian or Ubuntu) package dependency graph at will, with build-dependencies (if you have deb-src entries), reverse dependencies, and all other goodies. See the vignette and examples for illustrations.

This release updates the code to the Apt 2.5.0 release this makes. It makes a cleaner distinction between public and private components of the API. We adjusted one access point to a pattern we already used, and while at it, simplified some of the transition from the pre-Apt 2.0.0 interface. No new features. The NEWS entries follow.

Changes in version 0.0.9 (2022-05-25)

  • Simplified and standardized to only use public API

  • No longer tests and accomodates pre-Apt 2.0 API

Courtesy of my CRANberries, there is also a diffstat report for this release. A bit more information about the package is available here as well as at the GitHub repo.

If you like this or other open-source work I do, you can now sponsor me at GitHub.
