A minor maintenance release of the nanotime package for working with nanosecond timestamps just arrived on CRAN.

nanotime uses the RcppCCTZ package for (efficient) high(er) resolution time parsing and formatting up to nanosecond resolution, and the bit64 package for the actual integer64 arithmetic. Initially implemented using the S3 system, it now uses a more rigorous S4-based approach thanks to a rewrite by Leonardo Silvestri.

This release disables some tests on the Slowlaris platform we are asked to conform to (which is a good thing as wider variety of test platforms widens test converage) yet have no real access to (which is bad thing, obviously) beyind what the helpful rhub service offers. We also updated the Travis setup. No code changes.

Changes in version 0.2.3 (2018-09-30)

  • Skip some tests on Solaris which seems borked with timezones. As we have no real, no fixed possible (Dirk in #42).

  • Update Travis setup

Once this updates on the next hourly cron iteration, we also have a diff to the previous version thanks to CRANberries. More details and examples are at the nanotime page; code, issue tickets etc at the GitHub repository.
