Packages for R are being added and updated so frequently now that it’s tough to keep up with them all (the @CRANberriesFeed Twitter feed helps, though). But here are a couple of recent package updates that caught my eye:

  • The Rcpp package for seamless integration between R and C++ has been updated. While most of the changes are under the hood, new users will appreciate the updated FAQ and Quick Reference Guide

  • The rms package of regression tools has been updated with new capabilities for Cox regression.
  • The formatR package has been updated with a new function to reformat R source code for easier reading.
