blob 1.2.0 2019-07-09

Breaking changes

  • The blob class is now based on list_of(raw()) from the vctrs package (#11). This adds support for vec_cast() and vec_ptype2(). Some operations (such as subset assignment) are now stricter. The new_blob() constructor permits safe and fast construction of blob objects from a list, and validate_blob() checks an existing object for conformity with the rules.

  • The new is_blob() deprecates the existing is.blob(). as.blob() is deprecated in favor of vec_cast() or the new as_blob() (which is just a thin wrapper around vec_cast()).

  • Indexing a vector of blobs out of bounds now raises an error. Use NA as index to create a NULL blob.

blob 1.1.1 (2018-03-24) 2018-03-25

  • Now suggesting pillar instead of importing tibble, and using colored formatting with the prettyunits package with B instead of b as units (#7, #9).

  • The blob class can now be used for S4 dispatch.

  • Calling c() on blob objects returns a blob.
