A general description is here.
‘dist(x, method="canberra")’ now uses the correct definition; the result may only differ when ‘x’ contains values of differing signs, i.e., e.g., not for 0-1 data.
‘length()<-’ on a pairlist succeeds. (<URL: https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/r-devel/2017-July/074680.html>)
Language objects such as ‘quote(("\n"))’ or R functions are correctly printed again, where R 3.4.1 accidentally duplicated the backslashes.
