  • rgamma(1,Inf) or rgamma(1, 0,0) no longer give NaN but the correct limit.

  • length(baseenv()) is correct now.

  • pretty(d, ..) for date-time d rarely failed when "halfmonth" time steps were tried and on ‘inaccurate’ platforms such as 32-bit windows or a configuration with --disable-long-double; see comment #15 of.

  • In text.default(x, y, labels), the rarely(?) used default for labels is now correct also for the case of a 2-column matrix x and missing y.

  • as.factor(c(a = 1L)) preserves names() again as in R < 3.1.0.

  • strtrim(""[0], 0[0]) now works.

  • Use of Ctrl-C to terminate a reverse incremental search started by Ctrl-R in the readline-based Unix terminal interface is now supported forreadline >= 6.3 (Ctrl-G always worked).
