  • A new version (0.2.0) of rredlist is on CRAN. See release notes for changes. This version adds new methods rl_history() and its companion rl_history_(). In addition, there’s a minor improvement, and an important bug fix that was affecting Windows users. Windows users are especially encouraged to upgrade. Repository on GitHub.
  • A new version (0.6.5) of rnoaa is on CRAN. See release notes for changes. This version includes a major bug fix in which binary installations introduced the wrong cache path for those functions that used rappdirs for determining the cache path. This was introduced recently when the cache path was initialized on package build. This is now fixed. Everyone should upgrade. Repository on GitHub.



Onboarding

We accept community contributed packages via our onboarding system - a software review system, sorta like scholarly paper review, but way better. We’ll highlight new packages here that have come through this system. A huge thanks to our reviewers, who do a lot of work reviewing (see the blog post on our review system), and the authors of the packages!

The following package recently went through our onboarding process and has been approved:
