A new version of RcppAPT — our interface from R to the C++ library behind the awesome apt, apt-get, apt-cache, … commands and their cache — is now on CRAN.

It adds three new commands to the package. Two are relatively simple: showSrc() and dumpPackage() displays information about a given package, similar to what apt-cache showsrc and apt-cache showpkg, respectively, would reveal. Lastly, the buildDepends() function retrieves all build-dependencies for a packages. This should come in handy for automated tested for which I have some plans.

A bit more information is on the package page here as well as as the GitHub repo.
