Includes all modifications from v0.5-3 and v0.5-2.
Packages required for loading data sources are attached to the search path (with a warning) only if the new compatibility setting
attach_internal_libraries is set to
TRUE. Attaching packages to the search path seems to be unnecessary to achieve proper functionality, but users might rely on this behavior, and so this is the default for migrated projects but turned off for new projects (#104).
Fixed error message when
require.package is called from an anonymous
function and fails to load a package. (Using
deparse(nlines = 1) now.)
.add.extension(). This allows users to create custom readers for extensions, either locally in a project or as packages.
The configuration now stores the version of ProjectTemplate in the
migrate.project() that allows upgrading a project to the
current version of ProjectTemplate (#90, #121).
allows substitution of individual configuration items (#76).
Can use mustache style templating in SQL calls to access project data structures (#50).
Support passwordless connection to postgresql databases (#115).
Configuration entries that start with a hash (
#) are silently ignored (#74).
new.config that store the default
configuration used for missing configuration items or for a new project (#76, #89).
Missing but required directories are now created (with a warning) (#76).
Missing entries in the configuration file, or a missing configuration file, are substituted by defaults (with a warning). Extra entries are ignored (with a warning) (#76).
All logical configuration options are now stored as Boolean values instead of
'off'. Input values other than
'off' are converted using
as.logical, invalid values result in an error (#76).
Dropped dependency on
Defaults package (#100).
Suppress warnings in tests (#111).
Fix CRAN check issues (#117).
Improved presentation of available readers in documentation (#119).
Restore compatibility to R 2.15.3 by avoiding use of the
list.files() in our
get.project() to access
Attempting to load a missing package when reading data will lead to a user-friendly error message (#26).
translate.dcf function, useful for implementing custom readers (#59).
Add new function
.add.extension. This allows users to create custom readers
for extensions, either locally in a project or as packages (#59).
Fix CRAN warnings concerning use of
Fix CRAN warnings concerning assignments to
Updated author information in DESCRIPTION file (#40).
Store templates for empty projects in tar files instead of storing
the entire directory structure per CRAN request and to avoid having to build
--keep-empty-dirs switch (#41).

Added a JDBC database wrapper for accessing PostgreSQL databases hosted by Heroku (#20)
JDBC connection can now use path to jar stored in CLASSPATH
project.info is stored in the global environment again (reverted change from 0.4-4); the active binding seemed to work for the tests but not from outside the package
create.project now works if the directory exists. Merging with a non-empty directory is supported by setting the new parameter merge.strategy.
