A new version of rfoaas is now on CRAN. The rfoaas package provides an interface for R to the most excellent FOAAS service -- which provides a modern, scalable and RESTful web service for the frequent need to tell someone to eff off.

This is minor update, affecting only the rfoaas side without changes at the FOAAS backend side. We documented that the result may need an encoding update (at least on the World's leading consumer OS), and now provide a default value for from so that many services can be called argument-less, or at least with one argument less than before. Both of these were suggested by Richie Cotton via issue tickets at the GitHub repo.

CRANberries also provides a diff to the previous release. Questions, comments etc should go to the GitHub issue tracker off the GitHub repo.
