A new minor version of the nanotime package for working with nanosecond timestamps just arrived on CRAN.
nanotime uses the RcppCCTZ package for (efficient) high(er) resolution time parsing and formatting up to nanosecond resolution, and the bit64 package for the actual
integer64 arithmetic. Initially implemented using the S3 system, it now uses a more rigorous S4-based approach thanks to a rewrite by Leonardo Silvestri.
This release brings three different enhancements / fixes that robustify usage. No new features were added.
Changes in version 0.2.1 (2018-07-01)
Added attribute-preserving comparison (Leonardo in #33).
integer64 casts in constructors (Dirk in #36).
Added two checks for empty arguments (Dirk in #37).
We also have a diff to the previous version thanks to CRANberries. More details and examples are at the nanotime page; code, issue tickets etc at the GitHub repository.
