xts_0.13.0 on CRAN
An updated version of xts is now on CRAN. This release adds several exciting changes: open-ended time-of-day subsetting, smarter conversions to xts from data.frames/data.tables/tibbles;
to.period() handles custom endpoint values,
print() truncates rows like data.table, and
str() provides more informative output. There are also changes to make xts more consistent with zoo, some minor speed improvements, and the usual smattering of bug fixes.
