(devel/R-rlang) Updated 0.4.0 to 0.4.4  (R-testthat needs new version)

# rlang 0.4.4
* Maintenance release for CRAN.

# rlang 0.4.3

* You can now use glue syntax to unquote on the LHS of `:=`. This
  syntax is automatically available in all functions taking dots with
  `list2()` and `enquos()`, and thus most of the tidyverse. Note that
  if you use the glue syntax in an R package, you need to import glue.

  A single pair of braces triggers normal glue interpolation:

  df <- data.frame(x = 1:3)

  suffix <- "foo"
  df %>% dplyr::mutate("var_{suffix}" := x * 2)
  #>   x var_foo
  #> 1 1       2
  #> 2 2       4
  #> 3 3       6

  Using a pair of double braces is for labelling a function argument.
  Technically, this is shortcut for `"{as_label(enquo(arg))}"`. The
  syntax is similar to the curly-curly syntax for interpolating
  function arguments:

  my_wrapper <- function(data, var, suffix = "foo") {
    data %>% dplyr::mutate("{{ var }}_{suffix}" := {{ var }} * 2)
  df %>% my_wrapper(x)
  #>   x x_foo
  #> 1 1     2
  #> 2 2     4
  #> 3 3     6

  df %>% my_wrapper(sqrt(x))
  #>   x sqrt(x)_foo
  #> 1 1    2.000000
  #> 2 2    2.828427
  #> 3 3    3.464102

* Fixed a bug in magrittr backtraces that caused duplicate calls to
  appear in the trace.

* Fixed a bug in magrittr backtraces that caused wrong call indices.

* Empty backtraces are no longer shown when `rlang_backtrace_on_error`
  is set.

* The tidy eval `.env` pronoun is now exported for documentation

* `warn()` and `abort()` now check that either `class` or `message`
  was supplied. `inform()` allows sending empty message as it is
  occasionally useful for building user output incrementally.

* `flatten()` fails with a proper error when input can't be flattened (#868, #885).

* `inform()` now consistently appends a final newline to the message

* `cnd_body.default()` is now properly registered.

* `cnd_signal()` now uses the same approach as `abort()` to save
  unhandled errors to `last_error()`.

* Parsable constants like `NaN` and `NA_integer_` are now deparsed by
  `expr_deparse()` in their parsable form (#890).

* Infix operators now stick to their LHS when deparsed by
  `expr_deparse()` (#890).

# rlang 0.4.2

* New `cnd_header()`, `cnd_body()` and `cnd_footer()` generics. These
  are automatically called by `conditionMessage.rlang_error()`, the
  default method for all rlang errors.

  Concretely, this is a way of breaking up lazy generation of error
  messages with `conditionMessage()` into three independent
  parts. This provides a lot of flexibility for hierarchies of error
  classes, for instance you could inherit the body of an error message
  from a parent class while overriding the header and footer.

* The reminder to call `last_error()` is now less confusing thanks to
  a suggestion by @markhwhiteii.

* The functions prefixed in `scoped_` have been renamed to use the
  more conventional `local_` prefix. For instance, `scoped_bindings()`
  is now `local_bindings()`. The `scoped_` functions will be
  deprecated in the next significant version of rlang (0.5.0).

* The `.subclass` argument of `abort()`, `warn()` and `inform()` has
  been renamed to `class`. This is for consistency with our
  conventions for class constructors documented in

* `inform()` now prints messages to the standard output by default in
  interactive sessions. This makes them appear more like normal output
  in IDEs such as RStudio. In non-interactive sessions, messages are
  still printed to standard error to make it easy to redirect messages
  when running R scripts (#852).

* Fixed an error in `trace_back()` when the call stack contains a
  quosured symbol.

* Backtrace is now displayed in full when an error occurs in
  non-interactive sessions. Previously the backtraces of parent errors
  were left out.

# rlang 0.4.1

* New experimental framework for creating bulleted error messages. See
  `?cnd_message` for the motivation and an overwiew of the tools we
  have created to support this approach. In particular, `abort()` now
  takes character vectors to assemble a bullet list. Elements named
  `x` are prefixed with a red cross, elements named `i` are prefixed
  with a blue info symbol, and unnamed elements are prefixed with a

* Capture of backtrace in the context of rethrowing an error from an
  exiting handler has been improved. The `tryCatch()` context no
  longer leaks in the high-level backtrace.

* Printing an error no longer recommends calling `last_trace()`,
  unless called from `last_error()`.

* `env_clone()` no longer recreates active bindings and is now just an
  alias for `env2list(as.list(env))`. Unlike `as.list()` which returns
  the active binding function on R < 4.0, the value of active bindings
  is consistently used in all versions.

* The display of rlang errors derived from parent errors has been
  improved. The simplified backtrace (as printed by
  `rlang::last_error()`) no longer includes the parent errors. On the
  other hand, the full backtrace (as printed by `rlang::last_trace()`)
  now includes the backtraces of the parent errors.

* `cnd_signal()` has improved support for rlang errors created with
  `error_cnd()`. It now records a backtrace if there isn't one
  already, and saves the error so it can be inspected with

* rlang errors are no longer formatted and saved through
  `conditionMessage()`. This makes it easier to use a
  `conditionMessage()` method in subclasses created with `abort()`,
  which is useful to delay expensive generation of error messages
  until display time.

* `abort()` can now be called without error message. This is useful
  when `conditionMessage()` is used to generate the message at

* Fixed an infinite loop in `eval_tidy()`. It occurred when evaluating
  a quosure that inherits from the mask itself.

* `env_bind()`'s performance has been significantly improved by fixing a bug
  that caused values to be repeatedly looked up by name.

* `cnd_muffle()` now checks that a restart exists before invoking
  it. The restart might not exist if the condition is signalled with a
  different function (such as `stop(warning_cnd)`).

* `trace_length()` returns the number of frames in a backtrace.

* Added internal utility `cnd_entrace()` to add a backtrace to a

* `rlang::last_error()` backtraces are no longer displayed in red.

* `x %|% y` now also works when `y` is of same length as `x` (@rcannood, #806).

* Empty named lists are now deparsed more explicitly as
  `"<named list>"`.

* Fixed `chr()` bug causing it to return invisibly.

Log message:
Update to 0.3.1

Upstream changes:
rlang 0.3.1

This patch release polishes the new backtrace feature introduced in rlang 0.3.0 \ 
and solves bugs for the upcoming release of purrr 0.3.0. It also features \ 
as_label() and as_name() which are meant to replace quo_name() in the future. \ 
Finally, a bunch of deparsing issues have been fixed.
Backtrace fixes

    New entrace() condition handler. Add this to your RProfile to enable rlang \ 
backtraces for all errors, including warnings promoted to errors:

    if (requireNamespace("rlang", quietly = TRUE)) {
      options(error = rlang::entrace)

    This handler also works as a calling handler:

      error = calling(entrace),

    However it’s often more practical to use with_abort() in that case:


    with_abort() gains a classes argument to promote any kind of condition to an \ 
rlang error.

    New last_trace() shortcut to print the backtrace stored in the last_error().

    Backtrace objects now print in full by default.

    Calls in backtraces are now numbered according to their position in the call \ 
tree. The numbering is non-contiguous for simplified backtraces because of \ 
omitted call frames.

    catch_cnd() gains a classes argument to specify which classes of condition \ 
to catch. It returns NULL if the expected condition could not be caught (#696).

as_label() and as_name()

The new as_label() and as_name() functions should be used instead of quo_name() \ 
to transform objects and quoted expressions to a string. We have noticed that \ 
tidy eval users often use quo_name() to extract names from quosured symbols. \ 
This is not a good use for that function because the way quo_name() creates a \ 
string is not a well defined operation.

For this reason, we are replacing quo_name() with two new functions that have \ 
more clearly defined purposes, and hopefully better names reflecting those \ 
purposes. Use as_label() to transform any object to a short human-readable \ 
description, and as_name() to extract names from (possibly quosured) symbols.

Create labels with as_label() to:

    Display an object in a concise way, for example to labellise axes in a \ 
graphical plot.

    Give default names to columns in a data frame. In this case, labelling is \ 
the first step before name repair.

We expect as_label() to gain additional parameters in the future, for example to \ 
control the maximum width of a label. The way an object is labelled is thus \ 
subject to change.

On the other hand, as_name() transforms symbols back to a string in a well \ 
defined manner. Unlike as_label(), as_name() guarantees the roundtrip symbol \ 
-> string -> symbol.

In general, if you don’t know for sure what kind of object you’re dealing \ 
with (a call, a symbol, an unquoted constant), use as_label() and make no \ 
assumption about the resulting string. If you know you have a symbol and need \ 
the name of the object it refers to, use as_name(). For instance, use as_label() \ 
with objects captured with enquo() and as_name() with symbols captured with \ 

Note that quo_name() will only be soft-deprecated at the next major version of \ 
rlang (0.4.0). At this point, it will start issuing once-per-session warnings in \ 
scripts, but not in packages. It will then be deprecated in yet another major \ 
version, at which point it will issue once-per-session warnings in packages as \ 
well. You thus have plenty of time to change your code.
Minor fixes and features

    New is_interactive() function. It serves the same purpose as \ 
base::interactive() but also checks if knitr is in progress and provides an \ 
escape hatch. Use with_interactive() and scoped_interactive() to override the \ 
return value of is_interactive(). This is useful in unit tests or to manually \ 
turn on interactive features in RMarkdown outputs

    calling() now boxes its argument.

    New done() function to box a value. Done boxes are sentinels to indicate \ 
early termination of a loop or computation. For instance, it will be used in the \ 
purrr package to allow users to shortcircuit a reduction or accumulation.

    new_box() now accepts additional attributes passed to structure().

    as_string() now unwraps quosured symbols automatically.

    Note that quo_name() is not appropriate for transforming symbols to strings. \ 
quo_name() is suitable for creating default labels, not for deterministic \ 
conversions between symbol and string. Please use as_string() instead.

    Fixed a quotation bug with binary operators of zero or one argument such as \ 
`/`(1) (#652). They are now deparsed and printed properly as well.

    New call_ns() function to retrieve the namespace of a call. Returns NULL if \ 
the call is not namespaced.

    Top-level S3 objects are now deparsed properly.

    Empty { blocks are now deparsed on the same line.

    Fixed a deparsing issue with symbols containing non-ASCII characters (#691).

    expr_print() now handles [ and [[ operators correctly, and deparses \ 
non-syntactic symbols with backticks.

    call_modify() now respects ordering of unnamed inputs. Before this fix, it \ 
would move all unnamed inputs after named ones.

    as_closure() wrappers now call primitives with positional arguments to avoid \ 
edge case issues of argument matching.

    as_closure() wrappers now dispatch properly on methods defined in the global \ 
environment (tidyverse/purrr#459).

    as_closure() now supports both base-style (e1 and e2) and purrr-style (.x \ 
and .y) arguments with binary primitives.

    exec() takes .fn as first argument instead of f, for consistency with other \ 
rlang functions.

    Fixed infinite loop with quosures created inside a data mask.

    Base errors set as parent of rlang errors are now printed correctly.

rlang 0.3.0
Breaking changes

The rlang API is still maturing. In this section, you’ll find hard breaking \ 
changes. See the life cycle section below for an exhaustive list of API changes.

    quo_text() now deparses non-syntactic symbols with backticks:

    #> [1] "`foo+`"

    This caused a number of issues in reverse dependencies as quo_text() tends \ 
to be used for converting symbols to strings. quo_text() and quo_name() should \ 
not be used for this purpose because they are general purpose deparsers. These \ 
functions should generally only be used for printing outputs or creating default \ 
labels. If you need to convert symbols to strings, please use as_string() rather \ 
than quo_text().

    We have extended the documentation of ?quo_text and ?quo_name to make these \ 
points clearer.

    exprs() no longer flattens quosures. exprs(!!!quos(x, y)) is now equivalent \ 
to quos(x, y).

    The sentinel for removing arguments in call_modify() has been changed from \ 
NULL to zap(). This breaking change is motivated by the ambiguity of NULL with \ 
valid argument values.

    call_modify(call, arg = NULL)  # Add `arg = NULL` to the call
    call_modify(call, arg = zap()) # Remove the `arg` argument from the call

    The %@% operator now quotes its input and supports S4 objects. This makes it \ 
directly equivalent to @ except that it extracts attributes for non-S4 objects \ 

    Taking the env_parent() of the empty environment is now an error.


The changes for this version are organised around three main themes: error \ 
reporting, tidy eval, and tidy dots.

    abort() now records backtraces automatically in the error object. Errors \ 
thrown with abort() invite users to call rlang::last_error() to see a backtrace \ 
and help identifying where and why the error occurred. The backtraces created by \ 
rlang (you can create one manually with trace_back()) are printed in a \ 
simplified form by default that removes implementation details from the \ 
backtrace. To see the full backtrace, call summary(rlang::last_error()).

    abort() also gains a parent argument. This is meant for situations where \ 
you’re calling a low level API (to download a file, parse a JSON file, etc) \ 
and would like to intercept errors with base::tryCatch() or \ 
rlang::with_handlers() and rethrow them with a high-level message. Call abort() \ 
with the intercepted error as the parent argument. When the user prints \ 
rlang::last_error(), the backtrace will be shown in two sections corresponding \ 
to the high-level and low-level contexts.

    In order to get segmented backtraces, the low-level error has to be thrown \ 
with abort(). When that’s not the case, you can call the low-level function \ 
within with_abort() to automatically promote all errors to rlang errors.

    The tidy eval changes are mostly for developers of data masking APIs. The \ 
main user-facing change is that .data[[ is now an unquote operator so that var \ 
in .data[[var]] is never masked by data frame columns and always picked from the \ 
environment. This makes the pronoun safe for programming in functions.

    The !!! operator now supports all classed objects like factors. It calls \ 
as.list() on S3 objects and as(x, "list") on S4 objects.

    dots_list() gains several arguments to control how dots are collected. You \ 
can control the selection of arguments with the same name with .homonyms (keep \ 
first, last, all, or abort). You can also elect to preserve empty arguments with \ 

Conditions and errors

    New trace_back() captures a backtrace. Compared to the base R traceback, it \ 
contains additional structure about the relationship between frames. It comes \ 
with tools for automatically restricting to frames after a certain environment \ 
on the stack, and to simplify when printing. These backtraces are now recorded \ 
in errors thrown by abort() (see below).

    abort() gains a parent argument to specify a parent error. This is meant for \ 
situations where a low-level error is expected (e.g. download or parsing failed) \ 
and you’d like to throw an error with higher level information. Specifying the \ 
low-level error as parent makes it possible to partition the backtraces based on \ 

    Errors thrown with abort() now embed a backtrace in the condition object. It \ 
is no longer necessary to record a trace with a calling handler for such errors.

    with_abort() runs expressions in a context where all errors are promoted to \ 
rlang errors and gain a backtrace.

    Unhandled errors thrown by abort() are now automatically saved and can be \ 
retrieved with rlang::last_error(). The error prints with a simplified \ 
backtrace. Call summary(last_error()) to see the full backtrace.

    New experimental option rlang__backtrace_on_error to display backtraces \ 
alongside error messages. See ?rlang::abort for supported options.

    The new signal() function completes the abort(), warn() and inform() family. \ 
It creates and signals a bare condition.

    New interrupt() function to simulate an user interrupt from R code.

    cnd_signal() now dispatches messages, warnings, errors and interrupts to the \ 
relevant signalling functions (message(), warning(), stop() and the C function \ 
Rf_onintr()). This makes it a good choice to resignal a captured condition.

    New cnd_type() helper to determine the type of a condition \ 
("condition", "message", "warning", \ 
"error" or "interrupt").

    abort(), warn() and inform() now accepts metadata with .... The data are \ 
stored in the condition and can be examined by user handlers.

    Consequently all arguments have been renamed and prefixed with a dot (to \ 
limit naming conflicts between arguments and metadata names).

    with_handlers() treats bare functions as exiting handlers (equivalent to \ 
handlers supplied to tryCatch()). It also supports the formula shortcut for \ 
lambda functions (as in purrr).

    with_handlers() now produces a cleaner stack trace.

Tidy dots

    The input types of !!! have been standardised. !!! is generally defined on \ 
vectors: it takes a vector (typically, a list) and unquotes each element as a \ 
separate argument. The standardisation makes !!! behave the same in functions \ 
taking dots with list2() and in quoting functions. !!! accepts these types:

        Lists, pairlists, and atomic vectors. If they have a class, they are \ 
converted with base::as.list() to allow S3 dispatch. Following this change, \ 
objects like factors can now be spliced without data loss.

        S4 objects. These are converted with as(obj, "list") before \ 

        Quoted blocks of expressions, i.e. { } calls

    !!! disallows:
        Any other objects like functions or environments, but also language \ 
objects like formula, symbols, or quosures.

    Quoting functions used to automatically wrap language objects in lists to \ 
make them spliceable. This behaviour is now soft-deprecated and it is no longer \ 
valid to write !!!enquo(x). Please unquote scalar objects with !! instead.

    dots_list(), enexprs() and enquos() gain a .homonyms argument to control how \ 
to treat arguments with the same name. The default is to keep them. Set it to \ 
"first" or "last" to keep only the first or last \ 
occurrences. Set it to "error" to raise an informative error about the \ 
arguments with duplicated names.

    enexprs() and enquos() now support .ignore_empty = "all" with \ 
named arguments as well (#414).

    dots_list() gains a .preserve_empty argument. When TRUE, empty arguments are \ 
stored as missing arguments (see ?missing_arg).

    dots_list(), enexprs() and enquos() gain a .check_assign argument. When \ 
TRUE, a warning is issued when a <- call is detected in .... No warning is \ 
issued if the assignment is wrapped in brackets like { a <- 1 }. The warning \ 
lets users know about a possible typo in their code (assigning instead of \ 
matching a function parameter) and requires them to be explicit that they really \ 
want to assign to a variable by wrapping in parentheses.

    lapply(list(quote(foo)), list2) no longer evaluates foo (#580).

Tidy eval

    You can now unquote quosured symbols as LHS of :=. The symbol is \ 
automatically unwrapped from the quosure.

    Quosure methods have been defined for common operations like ==. These \ 
methods fail with an informative error message suggesting to unquote the quosure \ 
(#478, #tidyverse/dplyr#3476).

    as_data_pronoun() now accepts data masks. If the mask has multiple \ 
environments, all of these are looked up when subsetting the pronoun. Function \ 
objects stored in the mask are bypassed.

    It is now possible to unquote strings in function position. This is \ 
consistent with how the R parser coerces strings to symbols. These two \ 
expressions are now equivalent: expr("foo"()) and \ 

    Quosures converted to functions with as_function() now support nested quosures.

    expr_deparse() (used to print quosures at the console) now escapes special \ 
characters. For instance, newlines now print as "\n" (#484). This \ 
ensures that the roundtrip parse_expr(expr_deparse(x)) is not lossy.

    new_data_mask() now throws an error when bottom is not a child of top (#551).

    Formulas are now evaluated in the correct environment within eval_tidy(). \ 
This fixes issues in dplyr and other tidy-evaluation interfaces.

    New functions new_quosures() and as_quosures() to create or coerce to a list \ 
of quosures. This is a small S3 class that ensures two invariants on subsetting \ 
and concatenation: that each element is a quosure and that the list is always \ 
named even if only with a vector of empty strings.


    env() now treats a single unnamed argument as the parent of the new \ 
environment. Consequently, child_env() is now superfluous and is now in \ 
questioning life cycle.

    New current_env() and current_fn() functions to retrieve the current \ 
environment or the function being evaluated. They are equivalent to \ 
base::environment() and base::sys.function() called without argument.

    env_get() and env_get_list() gain a default argument to provide a default \ 
value for non-existing bindings.

    env_poke() now returns the old value invisibly rather than the input environment.

    The new function env_name() returns the name of an environment. It always \ 
adds the “namespace:” prefix to namespace names. It returns “global” \ 
instead of “.GlobalEnv” or “R_GlobalEnv”, “empty” instead of \ 
“R_EmptyEnv”. The companion env_label() is like env_name() but returns the \ 
memory address for anonymous environments.

    env_parents() now returns a named list. The names are taken with env_name().

    env_parents() and env_tail() now stop at the global environment by default. \ 
This can be changed with the last argument. The empty environment is always a \ 
stopping condition so you can take the parents or the tail of an environment on \ 
the search path without changing the default.

    New predicates env_binding_are_active() and env_binding_are_lazy() detect \ 
the kind of bindings in an environment.

    env_binding_lock() and env_binding_unlock() allows to lock and unlock \ 
multiple bindings. The predicate env_binding_are_locked() tests if bindings are \ 

    env_lock() and env_is_locked() lock an environment or test if an environment \ 
is locked.

    env_print() pretty-prints environments. It shows the contents (up to 20 \ 
elements) and the properties of the environment.

    is_scoped() has been soft-deprecated and renamed to is_attached(). It now \ 
supports environments in addition to search names.

    env_bind_lazy() and env_bind_active() now support quosures.

    env_bind_exprs() and env_bind_fns() are soft-deprecated and renamed to \ 
env_bind_lazy() and env_bind_active() for clarity and consistency.

    env_bind(), env_bind_exprs(), and env_bind_fns() now return the list of old \ 
binding values (or missing arguments when there is no old value). This makes it \ 
easy to restore the original environment state:

    old <- env_bind(env, foo = "foo", bar = "bar")
    env_bind(env, !!!old)

    env_bind() now supports binding missing arguments and removing bindings with \ 
zap sentinels. env_bind(env, foo = ) binds a missing argument and env_bind(env, \ 
foo = zap()) removes the foo binding.

    The inherit argument of env_get() and env_get_list() has changed position. \ 
It now comes after default.

    scoped_bindings() and with_bindings() can now be called without bindings.

    env_clone() now recreates active bindings correctly.

    env_get() now evaluates promises and active bindings since these are \ 
internal objects which should not be exposed at the R level (#554)

    env_print() calls get_env() on its argument, making it easier to see the \ 
environment of closures and quosures (#567).

    env_get() now supports retrieving missing arguments when inherit is FALSE.


    is_call() now accepts multiple namespaces. For instance is_call(x, \ 
"list", ns = c("", "base")) will match if x is \ 
list() or if it’s base::list():

    call_modify() has better support for ... and now treats it like a named \ 
argument. call_modify(call, ... = ) adds ... to the call and call_modify(call, \ 
... = NULL) removes it.

    call_modify() now preserves empty arguments. It is no longer necessary to \ 
use missing_arg() to add a missing argument to a call. This is possible thanks \ 
to the new .preserve_empty option of dots_list().

    call_modify() now supports removing unexisting arguments (#393) and passing \ 
multiple arguments with the same name (#398). The new .homonyms argument \ 
controls how to treat these arguments.

    call_standardise() now handles primitive functions like ~ properly (#473).

    call_print_type() indicates how a call is deparsed and printed at the \ 
console by R: prefix, infix, and special form.

    The call_ functions such as call_modify() now correctly check that their \ 
input is the right type (#187).

Other improvements and fixes

    New function zap() returns a sentinel that instructs functions like \ 
env_bind() or call_modify() that objects are to be removed.

    New function rep_named() repeats value along a character vector of names.

    New function exec() is a simpler replacement to invoke() (#536). invoke() \ 
has been soft-deprecated.

    Lambda functions created from formulas with as_function() are now classed. \ 
Use is_lambda() to check a function was created with the formula shorthand.

    is_integerish() now supports large double values (#578).

    are_na() now requires atomic vectors (#558).

    The operator %@% has now a replacement version to update attributes of an \ 
object (#207).

    fn_body() always returns a { block, even if the function has a single \ 
expression. For instance fn_body(function(x) do()) returns quote({ do() }).

    is_string() now returns FALSE for NA_character_.

    The vector predicates have been rewritten in C for performance.

    The finite argument of is_integerish() is now NULL by default. Missing \ 
values are now considered as non-finite for consistency with base::is.finite().

    is_bare_integerish() and is_scalar_integerish() gain a finite argument for \ 
consistency with is_integerish().

    flatten_if() and squash_if() now handle primitive functions like \ 
base::is.list() as predicates.

    is_symbol() now accepts a character vector of names to mach the symbol against.

    parse_exprs() and parse_quos() now support character vectors. Note that the \ 
output may be longer than the input as each string may yield multiple \ 
expressions (such as "foo; bar").

    parse_quos() now adds the quosures class to its output.

Soft-deprecated functions and arguments

rlang 0.3.0 introduces a new warning mechanism for soft-deprecated functions and \ 
arguments. A warning is issued, but only under one of these circumstances:

    rlang has been attached with a library() call.
    The deprecated function has been called from the global environment.

In addition, deprecation warnings appear only once per session in order to not \ 
be disruptive.

Deprecation warnings shouldn’t make R CMD check fail for packages using \ 
testthat. However, expect_silent() can transform the warning to a hard failure.

    .data[[foo]] is now an unquote operator. This guarantees that foo is \ 
evaluated in the context rather than the data mask and makes it easier to treat \ 
.data[["bar"]] the same way as a symbol. For instance, this will help \ 
ensuring that group_by(df, .data[["name"]]) and group_by(df, name) \ 
produce the same column name.

    Automatic naming of expressions now uses a new deparser (still unexported) \ 
instead of quo_text(). Following this change, automatic naming is now compatible \ 
with all object types (via pillar::type_sum() if available), prevents multi-line \ 
names, and ensures name and .data[["name"]] are given the same default \ 

    Supplying a name with !!! calls is soft-deprecated. This name is ignored \ 
because only the names of the spliced vector are applied.

    Quosure lists returned by quos() and enquos() now have “list-of” \ 
behaviour: the types of new elements are checked when adding objects to the \ 
list. Consequently, assigning non-quosure objects to quosure lists is now \ 
soft-deprecated. Please coerce to a bare list with as.list() beforehand.

    as_quosure() now requires an explicit environment for symbols and calls. \ 
This should typically be the environment in which the expression was created.

    names() and length() methods for data pronouns are deprecated. It is no \ 
longer valid to write names(.data) or length(.data).

    Using as.character() on quosures is soft-deprecated (#523).


    Using get_env() without supplying an environment is now soft-deprecated. \ 
Please use current_env() to retrieve the current environment.

    The frame and stack API is soft-deprecated. Some of the functionality has \ 
been replaced by trace_back().

    The new_vector_along() family is soft-deprecated because these functions are \ 
longer to type than the equivalent rep_along() or rep_named() calls without \ 
added clarity.

    Passing environment wrappers like formulas or functions to env_ functions is \ 
now soft-deprecated. This internal genericity was causing confusion (see issue \ 
#427). You should now extract the environment separately before calling these \ 

    This change concerns env_depth(), env_poke_parent(), env_parent<-, \ 
env_tail(), set_env(), env_clone(), env_inherits(), env_bind(), \ 
scoped_bindings(), with_bindings(), env_poke(), env_has(), env_get(), \ 
env_names(), env_bind_exprs() and env_bind_fns().

    cnd_signal() now always installs a muffling restart for non-critical \ 
conditions. Consequently the .mufflable argument has been soft-deprecated and no \ 
longer has any effect.

Deprecated functions and arguments

Deprecated functions and arguments issue a warning inconditionally, but only \ 
once per session.

    Calling UQ() and UQS() with the rlang namespace qualifier is deprecated as \ 
of rlang 0.3.0. Just use the unqualified forms instead:

    # Bad
    rlang::expr(mean(rlang::UQ(var) * 100))

    # Ok
    rlang::expr(mean(UQ(var) * 100))

    # Good
    rlang::expr(mean(!!var * 100))

    Although soft-deprecated since rlang 0.2.0, UQ() and UQS() can still be used \ 
for now.

    The call argument of abort() and condition constructors is now deprecated in \ 
favour of storing full backtraces.

    The .standardise argument of call_modify() is deprecated. Please use \ 
call_standardise() beforehand.

    The sentinel argument of env_tail() has been deprecated and renamed to last.

Defunct functions and arguments

Defunct functions and arguments throw an error when used.

    as_dictionary() is now defunct.

    The experimental function rst_muffle() is now defunct. Please use \ 
cnd_muffle() instead. Unlike its predecessor, cnd_muffle() is not generic. It is \ 
marked as a calling handler and thus can be passed directly to with_handlers() \ 
to muffle specific conditions (such as specific subclasses of warnings).

    cnd_inform(), cnd_warn() and cnd_abort() are retired and defunct. The old \ 
cnd_message(), cnd_warning(), cnd_error() and new_cnd() constructors deprecated \ 
in rlang 0.2.0 are now defunct.

    Modifying a condition with cnd_signal() is defunct. In addition, creating a \ 
condition with cnd_signal() is soft-deprecated, please use the new function \ 
[signal()] instead.

    inplace() has been renamed to calling() to follow base R terminology more \ 

Functions and arguments in the questioning stage

We are no longer convinced these functions are the right approach but we do not \ 
have a precise alternative yet.

    The functions from the restart API are now in the questioning lifecycle \ 
stage. It is not clear yet whether we want to recommend restarts as a style of \ 
programming in R.

    prepend() and modify() are in the questioning stage, as well as \ 
as_logical(), as_character(), etc. We are still figuring out what vector tools \ 
belong in rlang.

    flatten(), squash() and their atomic variants are now in the questioning \ 
lifecycle stage. They have slightly different semantics than the flattening \ 
functions in purrr and we are currently rethinking our approach to flattening \ 
with the new typing facilities of the vctrs package.

Log message:
Remove MASTER_SITES= from individual R package Makefiles.

Each R package should include ../../math/R/Makefile.extension, which also
defines MASTER_SITES.  Consequently, it is redundant for the individual
packages to do the same.  Package-specific definitions also prevent
redefining MASTER_SITES in a single common place.
