This blog is updated daily.
A general description is here.
the ‘grid’ package now allows the user to specify a “vector” of pattern fills. The ‘fill’ argument to ‘gpar()’ accepts a list of gradients and/or patterns and the functions ‘linearGradient()’, ‘radialGradient()’, and ‘pattern()’ have a new ‘group’ argument.
Points grobs (data symbols) can now also have a pattern fill.
The ‘grobCoords()’ function now returns a more informative and complex result.
‘R CMD build’ and ‘R CMD check’ now include the Rd file name and line numbers in the error message of an \Sexpr evaluation failure.
