We are pleased to announce the release of XLConnect 0.2‑13, now available from CRAN and from our GitHub repository.

This release comes with the following changes:

  • Upgraded to Apache POI 3.16
  • Performance improvements to setCellStyle for large row/col vectors
  • Added support for setting hyperlinks
  • Fixed an issue with missing Java classes when opening password protected files #61
  • Upgraded to XLConnectJars 0.2-13

XLConnect is a comprehensive and cross-platform R package for manipulating Microsoft Excel files from within R. XLConnect differs from other related R packages in that it is completely cross-platform and as such runs under Windows, Unix/Linux and Mac (32- and 64-bit). Moreover, it does not require any installation of Microsoft Excel or any other special drivers to be able to read & write Excel files. The only requirement is a recent version of a Java Runtime Environment (JRE).

Please log any enhancement requests or bug reports with a simple and self-contained reproducible example on our GitHub repository.
