dplyr Function Reference Documentation

The current reference documentation for dplyr indicates version 0.8.0:

This version is only a release candidate and 0.7.8 is the latest on CRAN:

There are some significant differences which caught me out (e.g. new name argument in count() which incorrectly produces a new column in 0.7.8).

Wouldn't it make more sense for the function reference material to reflect the latest version on CRAN? Or else at least indicate elements which are different in the CRAN release?


We are moving towards separate dev and CRAN websites for most packages. But because of the way the websites are automatically built, the transition is going to take a while.

Thanks, that makes sense. I almost always check the website for function help, rather than ?. I just happened to stumble across the version issue this time.
