Usage
bugfixes(sinceversion = NULL, sincedate = NULL,
           package = "spatstat", show = TRUE)
Arguments
sinceversion

Earliest version of package for which bugs should be listed. The default is the current installed version.

sincedate

Earliest release date of package for which bugs should be listed. A character string or a date-time object.

package

Character string. The name of the package for which bugs are to be listed.

show

Logical value indicating whether to display the bug table on the terminal.

Details

Bug reports are extracted from the NEWS file of the specified package. Only those after a specified date, or after a specified version of the package, are retained. The bug reports are then sorted alphabetically, so that all bugs affecting a particular function are listed consecutively. Finally the table of bug reports is displayed (if show=TRUE) and returned invisibly.

The argument sinceversion should be a character string like "1.2-3". The default is the current installed version of the package. The argument sincedate should be a character string like "2015-05-27", or a date-time object.

If package="spatstat" (the default) then sinceversion="book" and sincedate="book" are interpreted to mean sinceversion="1.42-0", which gives all bugs reported after publication of the book by Baddeley, Rubak and Turner (2015).

Typing bugfixes without parentheses will display a table of all bug fixes in the current installed version of spatstat.

Value

A data frame, belonging to the class "bugtable", which has its own print method.
