pkgKitten 0.1.1: Still creating R Packages that purr

September 10, 2014

A maintenance release 0.1.1 of pkgKitten is now on CRAN.

It has only one small change: the function playWithPerPackageHelpPage() was factored out of the main function kitten() as I happened to be needing something just like playWithPerPackageHelpPage() to make packages created by the Rcpp function Rcpp.package.skeleton() a little nicer.

We also added a NEWS.Rd file which restates major release features. As it is so short, we include it in its entirety.

Changes in version 0.1.1 (2014-09-09)

  • New (exported) function playWithPerPackageHelpPage() which lets other packages create a non-complaint-generating package help page

Changes in version 0.1.0 (2014-06-13)

  • Initial public version and CRAN upload

More details about the package are at the pkgKitten webpage and the pkgKitten GitHub repo.

Courtesy of CRANberries, there is also a diffstat report for this release
