We’re excited to announce version 1.4.2 of the tibble package, a minor update focusing mostly on display and performance. This is a small release designed to address the biggest issues introduced in version 1.4.1. We’ve introduced a number of option to give you greater control over the appearance, and tweaked the default to work better for more people. (The option names start with
pillar, because that’s the package that is actually responsible for printing; the new options are available with pillar 1.1.0 which will be installed automatically when you install or upgrade tibble.) In addition, tibbles are now displayed faster, even very wide ones. The subsetting performance has also improved.
