Lubridate Updates

Hadley Wickham reports on a Lubridate update:

  • Date time rounding (with round_date()floor_date() and ceiling_date()) now supports unit multipliers, like “3 days” or “2 months”:

    ceiling_date(ymd_hms("2016-09-12 17:10:00"), unit = "5 minutes")#> [1] "2016-09-12 17:10:00 UTC"

If you handle date and time data in R, Lubridate is a tremendous asset.
