  • A new version of rsnps is on CRAN. See the release notes for the changes.
  • A new version of rcrossref is on CRAN. See the release notes for the changes. Note that pmid2doi() and doi2pmid() are defunct (that is, gone), as the APIs behind them have been at least temporarily taken offline. In addition, there are a number of new functions: cr_ft_links() gets links for full text content of an article, while cr_ft_text() retrieves full text content of an article.
  • A new version of alm is on CRAN. See the release notes for the changes. API keys are no longer needed with most data sources that use Lagotto. A new function alm_requests() to get metadata on incoming API requests (only for authorized users). Many parameter names have changed - and some removed.
