tidyr Update

Kevin Feasel



Hadley Wickham has a new version of tidyr out:

I’m pleased to announce tidyr 0.5.0. tidyr makes it easy to “tidy” your data, storing it in a consistent form so that it’s easy to manipulate, visualise and model.

Check out the latest version of tidyr; it’s one of the most useful data manipulation packages on the R platform.
