R 3.4.3 is released (a bug-fix release)

R 3.4.3 (codename “Kite-Eating Tree”) was released last week. You can get the latest binaries version from here. (or the .tar.gz source code from here). As mentioned by David Smith, R 3.4.3 is primarily a bug-fix release: It fixes an issue with incorrect time zones on MacOS High Sierra, and some issues with handling Unicode characters. (Incidentally, representing international and special characters is something that R takes great care in handling properly. It’s not an easy task: a 2003 essay by Joel Spolsky describes the minefield that is character representation, and not much has changed since then.) The full list of bug fixes and new features is provided below. Upgrading to R 3.4.3 on Windows If you are using Windows you can easily upgrade to the latest version of R using the installr package. Simply run the following code in Rgui: install.packages(“installr”) # install setInternet2(TRUE) # only…

heatmaply: an R package for creating interactive cluster heatmaps for online publishing

This post on the heatmaply package is based on my recent paper from the journal bioinformatics (a link to a stable DOI). The paper was published just last week, and since it is released as CC-BY, I am permitted (and delighted) to republish it here in full. My co-authors for this paper are Jonathan Sidi, Alan O’Callaghan, and Carson Sievert. Summary: heatmaply is an R package for easily creating interactive cluster heatmaps that can be shared online as a stand-alone HTML file. Interactivity includes a tooltip display of values when hovering over cells, as well as the ability to zoom in to specific sections of the figure from the data matrix, the side dendrograms, or annotated labels.  Thanks to the synergistic relationship between heatmaply and other R packages, the user is empowered by a refined control over the statistical and visual aspects of the heatmap layout. Availability: The heatmaply package…

On a related note, following the announcement on R 3.4.2, Duncan Murdoch wrote yesterday: I’ve just finished the Windows build of R 3.4.2.  It will make it to CRAN and its mirrors over the next few hours.
