xts 0.10-2 on CRAN

This xts release contains mostly bugfixes, but there are a few noteworthy features. Some of these features were added in version 0.10-1, but I forgot to blog about it. Anyway, in no particular order:

  • endpoints() gained sub-second accuracy on Windows (#202)!
  • na.locf.xts() now honors 'x' and 'xout' arguments by dispatching to the next method (#215). Thanks to Morten Grum for the report.
  • na.locf.xts() and na.omit.xts() now support character xts objects. Thanks to Ken Williams and Samo Pahor for the reports (#42).

Many of the bug fixes were related to the new plot.xts() introduced in 0.10-0. And a handful of bugfixes were to make xts more consistent with zoo in some edge cases.

As always, I'm looking forward to your questions and feedback!  If you have a question, please ask on Stack Overflow and use the [r] and [xts] tags.  Or you can send an email to the R-SIG-Finance mailing list (you must subscribe to post).  Open an issue on GitHub if you find a bug or want to request a feature, but please read the contributing guide first!
