Bug fixes

clifro 3.2.5 (18-Mar-2021)

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed issue #7

clifro 3.1-0 (14-December-2016)

Minor Improvements

  • Curl options can now be passed to all curl handles that are initiated by clifro. This means the curl options are not overwritten every time a new clifro function is called. Curl options are passed to clifro using the cf_curl_opts function, which is passed directly to the RCurl::curlOptions() function.

Bug Fixes

  • Requesting combined datatypes now works (issue #4). Note there is no default plot method for this datatype as they are essentially combinations of other datatypes.
  • Fix bug that hung R if a datatype without any rows was requested – Fixed issue #6
