A new version of the RcppAPT package interfacing from R to the C++ library behind the awesome
apt-cache, … commands and their cache powering Debian, Ubuntu and the like arrived on CRAN earlier today.
RcppAPT allows you to query the (Debian or Ubuntu) package dependency graph at will, with build-dependencies (if you have
deb-src entries), reverse dependencies, and all other goodies. See the vignette and examples for illustrations.
This release updates some package metadata, adds a new package testing helper, and, just like digest three days ago, drat two days ago, and littler yesterday, we converted the vignettes from using the minidown package to the (fairly new) simplermarkdown package which is so much more appropriate for our use of the minimal water.css style.
