‘readRDS(textConnection(.))’ works again. (PR#17325)
‘array(character(), 1)’ now gives (a 1D array with) ‘NA’ as has been documented for a long time as in the other cases of zero-length array initialization and also compatibly with ‘matrix(character(), *)’. As mentioned there, this also fixes PR#17333.
