The latest version of futile was released to CRAN yesterday. This release broke out the various functions into self-contained sub-packages with the base futile package hanging around as a wrapper to ensure loading of the most recent stable sub-packages (similar to the relationship that kde has to kdegraphics, kdepim, etc.).

Current sub-systems avaiable in futile include

  1. futile.options – A scoped options management library
  2. futile.logger – A feature rich logging library similar to log4j and log4cpp
  3. futile.any – A library that provides some extra polymorphism for common functions
  4. futile.matrix – A matrix manipulation library that eases working with large matrices

All packages are available in R via the standard installation method. More information is available on the futile home page and at CRAN.
