anytime 0.0.3: Extension and fixes

anytime arrived on CRAN with releases 0.0.1 and 0.0.2 about a month ago. anytime aims to convert anything in integer, numeric, character, factor, ordered, ... format to POSIXct (or Date) objects.

Release 0.0.3 brings a bugfix for Windows (where for dates before the epoch of 1970-01-01, accessing the tm_isdst field for daylight savings would crash the session) and a small (unexported) extension to test format strings. This last feature plays well the ability to add format strings which we added in 0.0.2.

The NEWS file summarises the release:

Changes in Rcpp version 0.0.3 (2016-10-13)

  • Added (non-exported) helper function testFormat()

  • Do not access tm_isdst on Windows for dates before the epoch (pull request #13 fixing issue #12); added test as well

Courtesy of CRANberries, there is a comparison to the previous release. More information is on the anytime page.
