rotor 0.3.5 2020-12-13

  • Backups now retain their original timestamp (created, last modified) where possible (even when zipped)
  • fixed broken behaviour when pruning with max_backups where max_backups is the maximum number of files
  • parse_size() now accepts (and rounds down) decimal file sizes, but throws a warning

rotor 0.3.4 2020-10-28

  • Hotfix for some tests related to the Cache R6 class that fail on systems with low-precision file system timestamps (such as ext3 and old Windows file systems)

rotor 0.3.2 2020-10-20

  • fixes time zone related issue in Cache$prune().
  • fixes bug in rotate_rds(on_change_only = TRUE) that occurs if a version of data.table < 1.3.0 is installed and either the source or target object are a data.table (but not both)
  • more robust clean up of temporary files in most unit tests

rotor 0.3.0 2020-10-16

  • Improved some error messages
  • Added rotate_rds(), rotate_rds_time(), and rotate_rds_date() as a replacement for base::saveRDS() that supports creating backups instead of just overwriting the destination file.
  • added Cache, an R6 class for managing cache directories. The Cache API is still experimental and might change.
  • breaking R6 API: renamed some methods and active fields of BackupQueue to more universal names:
    • $push_backup() -> $push()
    • $backup_dir -> dir()
    • $backups -> $files
    • $file -> $origin
  • BackupQueue$prune_identical() removes identical backups for a BackupQueue

rotor 0.2.4 2020-01-07

  • Fixes unit tests sensitive to year change.

rotor 0.2.3 2019-06-17

  • Changed default behavior of rotate_date(), rotate_time(), etc…: If no backups exist of target file, use the “created” timestamp to determine whether rotation should take place or not.
  • verbose == TRUE now also displays information on why rotation was NOT triggered.
  • added backup_info() which is similar to but with additional backup related infos.
  • removed "dir" column from $backups/backup_info()

rotor 0.2.2 2019-05-28

  • Reordered the arguments of rotate_*() and backup_*() for more consistency
  • default size for all all rotate_*() and backup_*() functions is now 1 (Byte). This means empty files are never rotated by default.
  • added support for Inf size and age (= never rotate)
  • More robust regex for discovering backups of files
  • R6 API: BackupQueue subclasses gain a should_rotate(...) method that determines whether rotation/backup should take place.
  • R6 API: BackupQueueDate and BackupQueueDateTime now have a caching mechanism for backups (defaults to FALSE).
  • R6 API: BackupQueue* now use setters/getters for all fields.

rotor 0.2.1 2019-05-16

  • added examples to rotate() documentation
  • dry_run status is now tracked internally instead of a potentially user modifiable option() (it was never designed to be user modifiable anyways).
  • Track test coverage with covr
  • Added a file to track changes to the package.
