Query cran directly about latest package changes for last or previous week

Hi there,

Is there a simple way to query cran to see when last a package was updated or to see which packages were all updated in the last week? I'd like to be able to return a vector of names or table with that information for some devops requirements and was wondering if someone has some convenience functions.

If I'm not mistaken, you can call tools::CRAN_package_db() and look at the column Published.

Thanks for this. It will do the job!

#> 1 Offers a set of functions for extending\n    'dendrogram' objects in R, letting you visualize and compare trees of\n    'hierarchical clusterings'. You can (1) Adjust a tree's graphical parameters\n    - the color, size, type, etc of its branches, nodes and labels. (2)\n    Visually and statistically compare different 'dendrograms' to one another.
