RPushbullet 0.2.0

A new releases of the RPushbullet package (interfacing the neat Pushbullet service) arrived on CRAN today.

It brings several weeks of extensions, corrections and cleanups---with key contributions by Mike Birdgeneau and Henrik Bengtsson.

RPushbullet now has support for channels (a reasonably new feature upstream). Setup, initialization and tests all got improved as well. Changes are summarized below based in the extract from the NEWS.Rd file.

Changes in version 0.2.0 (2015-02-07)

  • Added support for Pushbullet 'channels' (once again thanks to Mike Birdgeneau for the initial push on this)

  • Support for pushes was solidified: proper choices of either device, email or channel should work in all cases

  • S3 methods are now properly exports (thanks to Henrik Bengtsson)

  • File transfer mode has been improved / corrected (thanks to Mike Birdgeneau)

  • The regression test suite was expanded and robustified

  • This NEWS file was added. Better late than never.

Courtesy of CRANberries, there is also a diffstat report for this release.

More details about the package are at the RPushbullet webpage and the RPushbullet GitHub repo.
