September 2015 - Smaller tweaks, which should not impact any functionality of the Bit.ly - Bring up-to-date with R releases - Added (a very) experimental support of Ow.ly (owned by Hootsuite.com). Please (!) report bugs to the maintainers (see above). - Added a (less experimental) support of goo.gl (owned by Google.com). - This is also the last release before RBitly will get achieved. Please replace with devtools:install_github('dmpe/urlshorteneR') - The former github URL was https://github.com/dmpe/rbitly
