• pkgsearch gives nicer error messages now.
  • pkgsearch functions return data frames now, instead of tibbles. The data frames have a tbl class, so they are still printed the same way as tibbles, as long as the pillar package is available. Otherwise they behave as data frames.

  • New cran_new() function to query new packages on CRAN.

  • Fix dependency handling in the add-in (@salim-b, #101)

  • pkgsearch uses curl now for the HTTP calls, instead of httr, which makes it a bit more lightweight.

  • The RStudio addin now gives a better error more missing dependencies (#84, @yonicd)

  • cran_package_history() now errors for non-existing packages, instead of returning NULL or the data for another package (#88).

  • The “My packages” and “Most depended upon” items now work properly in the RStudio addin (#77).

  • The RStudio addin has a better window title when running in a browser (#79).

  • The addin now does not crash RStudio when closing the window (#78).

  • Fix a bug when a search hit does not have a ‘downloads’ field. (Because it is a brand new package.)

First release on CRAN.
