taxadb 0.2.2

  • clean_names now also removes the “spp.” epithet

taxadb 0.2.1

CRAN release: 2023-03-08

  • substantial speed improvements to all filter_* and get_* functions
  • streamline legacy code in filter_* and get_* functions to better leverage duckdb speed increase
  • get_names and get_ids now use the same argument name, provider, to specify the naming provider, rather than db (which was used in taxize::get_ids)

taxadb 0.2.0

CRAN release: 2023-02-14

  • taxadb is now backed by partitioned parquet files, cached locally by contentid
  • taxadb is now fully-duckdb based. This deprecates the previous ‘pluggable’ backend with options to use RSQLite or no database backend. Parquet-backed option means that even initial import is much faster, leaving no need to use any of the inferior backend options.
  • mutate_db is deprecated, dplyr::mutate() will work as anticipated.
  • metadata/prov archive is now based on rather than DCAT2
  • includes 22.12 release for name providers col, itis, ncbi, ott, and gbif. Other database name providers are currently deprecated (though at least iucn should be restored soon).
