tint 0.0.5

January 6, 2018

(This article was first published on Thinking inside the box , and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

A maintenance release of the tint package arrived on CRAN earlier this week. Its name expands from tint is not tufte as the package offers a fresher take on the Tufte-style for html and pdf presentations.

A screenshot of the pdf variant is below.

Similar to the RcppCNPy release this week, this is pure maintenance related to dependencies. CRAN noticed that processing these vignettes requires the mgcv package—as we use geom_smooth() in some example graphs. So that was altered to not require this requirement just for the vignette tests. We also had one pending older change related to jurassic pandoc versions on some CRAN architectures.

Changes in tint version 0.0.5 (2018-01-05)

  • Only run html rendering regression test on Linux or Windows as the pandoc versions on CRAN are too old elsewhere.

  • Vignette figures reworked so that the mgcv package is not required avoiding a spurious dependency [CRAN request]

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