devtools 1.5 is now available on CRAN. It includes four new functions make it easier to add useful infrastructure to packages:

  • add_test_infrastructure() will create testthat infrastructure when needed.

  • add_rstudio_project() adds an Rstudio project file to your package.

  • add_travis() adds a basic template for travis-ci.

  • add_build_ignore() makes it easy to add files to .Rbuildignore,
    escaping special characters as needed.

We’ve also bumped two dependencies: devtools now requires R 3.0.2 and roxygen2 3.0.0. We’ve also included many minor improvements and bug fixes, particularly for package installation. For example install_github() now prefers the safer github personal access token, and does a better job of installing the dependencies that you actually need. We also provide versions of help(), ? and system.file() that work with all packages, regardless of how they’re loaded. See a complete list of changes in the full release notes.
