nanotime 0.3.3 on CRAN: Some Updates

Leonardo and I are pleased to share that a new nanotime version 0.3.3 was released today, and arrived on CRAN. This release brings a new (plotting) demo, an updated documentation site, additional nanoduration and nanoperiod functionality, and enhanced testing.

nanotime relies on 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 has benefitted greatly from work by co-author Leonardo who not only rejigged nanotime internals in S4 but also added new S4 types for periods, intervals and durations.

The NEWS snippet adds full details.

Changes in version 0.3.3 (2021-08-09)

  • New demo ggplot2Example.R (Leonardo and Dirk).

  • New documentation website using mkdocs-material (Dirk).

  • Updated unit test to account for r-devel POSIXct changes, and re-enable full testing under r-devel (Dirk).

  • Additional nanoduration and character ops plus tests (Colin Umansky in #88 addressing #87).

  • New plus and minus functions for periods (Leonardo in #91).

Thanks to CRANberries there is also a diff to the previous version. More details and examples are at the nanotime page; code, issue tickets etc at the GitHub repository.
