RApiDatetime 0.0.2

Two days after the initial 0.0.1 release, a new version of RApiDatetime has just arrived on CRAN.

RApiDatetime provides six entry points for C-level functions of the R API for Date and Datetime calculations. The functions asPOSIXlt and asPOSIXct convert between long and compact datetime representation, formatPOSIXlt and Rstrptime convert to and from character strings, and POSIXlt2D and D2POSIXlt convert between Date and POSIXlt datetime. These six functions are all fairly essential and useful, but not one of them was previously exported by R.

Josh Ulrich took one hard look at the package -- and added the one line we needed to enable the Windows support that was missing in the initial release. We now build on all platforms supported by R and CRAN. Otherwise, I just added a NEWS file and called it a bugfix release.
