A new version of drat arrived earlier today on CRAN as another no-human-can-delay-this automatic upgrade directly from the CRAN prechecks. It is mostly a maintenance release ensuring PACKAGES.rds is also updated, plus some minor other edits.

drat stands for drat R Archive Template, and helps with easy-to-create and easy-to-use repositories for R packages. Since its inception in early 2015 it has found reasonably widespread adoption among R users because repositories with marked releases is the better way to distribute code.

The NEWS file summarises the release as follows:

Changes in drat version 0.1.3 (2017-09-16)

  • Ensure PACKAGES.rds, if present, is also inserted in repo

  • Updated ‘README.md’ removing stale example URLs (#63)

  • Use https to fetch Travis CI script from r-travis

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