Releases will be numbered with the following semantic versioning format:


And constructed with the following guidelines:

  • Breaking backward compatibility bumps the major (and resets the minor and patch)
  • New additions without breaking backward compatibility bumps the minor (and resets the patch)
  • Bug fixes and misc changes bumps the patch
  • Following the RStudio convention, a .99 is appended after the patch number to indicate the development version on Github. Any version Coming from Github will now use the .99 extension, which will never appear in a version number for the package on CRAN.

  • add URL and BugReports to Description. #103
  • for consistency with other add_ methods, the nexml object is now the last, not the first, argument to add_basic_meta. As this changes the function API, it could break code that does not explicitly name the arguments, so we should consider releasing this as 2.0.0


Minor bugfix

  • Fixes typo that caused validator to fail when couldn't be reached


Less aggressive unit-tests

  • nexml_validate now returns NULL if the validation cannot be performed. Unit tests now consider either TRUE or NULL as acceptable.
  • Just skips the uuid unit test if uuid package is not available
  • Documented versioning practice in NEWS


Documentation and less agressive unit tests

  • Unit tests relying on the Figshare API are not run (without failing) if authentication to figshare server fails
  • Documentation updated to include examples for all functions
