R 3.4.0 was released some days ago. A compatibility update to RStudio is also available.
The repositories at this site and obviously also at CRAN now contain package binary distributions for R 3.4.x and R 3.3.x.
One major change in this release is that the JIT (just in time) compiler is enabled by default. I have not done any benchmarking yet.
I have written
a page explaining how to upgrade your R installation.
The code examples in my book
continue to work as expected. However not all the package updates for R 3.4.0 are yet in CRAN. In package ‘gganimate’ function Learn R …as you learnt your mother tongue
gg_animate() has been renamed
The code examples in our book
run without problems. Due to recent updates to the packages in my R for Photobiology Suite, used in the book examples, fewer warnings than earlier are triggered. R for Photobiology: Theory and recipes for common calculations
The main changes from
version 0.9.14 the previous CRAN release, are:
na.exclude() for spectral objects (R’s default
na.fail() can be used as is).
Laxen range test for
check_spct.cps_spct() and for
check_spct.raw_spct(), so as to avoid spurious warnings and/or errors.
Make waveband() with no arguments valid and use it as “null” return value.

(Binaries will be soon built.) NOTE: The updated package is on CRAN.

I gave today a talk on one possible way of using R package ‘ooacquire’. I used for the presentation a video with programmed pauses. The pauses are missing from this exported MP4 video file.
