R updates

Over the last week I’ve spent a lot of time writing R. Much of the code isn’t yet visible - brand new packages, sorta thing, which I’m super excited about - but some time was spent on patching and releasing existing packages. Tweaks out now on CRAN:

  1. geohash, which computes and decodes geohashes, no longer snarls on the international dateline. In addition it’s guaranteed to work on the next GCC release.
  2. ores, the client for Wikipedia’s Objective Revision Evaluation Service, is updated to version 3 of the API.
  3. rgeolocate, R’s standard IP geolocation package, has wider compiler support and no longer contains a bug around non-absolute paths.
