AppVeyor build status

ASGS.foyer 0.2.1

  • Added codetools and spdep to Suggests as they are used in tests. Thanks to CRAN for notifying.

ASGS.foyer 0.2.0

  • install_ASGS: if one of ASGS's dependencies is not installed, install_ASGS now installs it rather than raising an error after the download has taken place. By default, the packages are installed then a second attempt at installation occurs
  • temp.tar.gz now is actually used, rather than having no effect. Thanks to BV for reporting.

ASGS.foyer 0.1.0

  • Added a file to track changes to the package.
