Computational Journalism Publishers Workbench 2.8.0 Released

I’ve just pushed the latest release, 2.8.0, cutesy release code name “You don’t – you get down off a goose!” to Github. As always you can file issues here.

What’s New?

  1. Cutesy release code name: “You don’t – you get down off a goose!”
  2. I’ve added some Google interface routines to the platform:
    • googlePublicData – An R library to build Google’s Public Data Explorer DSPL Metadata files
    • googleVis – Interface between R and the Google Chart Tools
    • gooJSON – Google JSON Data Interpreter for R
  3. On March 28, 2013, the Portland Riak Meetup Group had an Intro to Riak Workshop. We went through the Riak Fast Track and Riak is now available as an option in the workbench! I’ve tested it on both Fedora 18 and Linux Mint 14 and will be testing it on Ubuntu 12.10 in the near future. I’ve essentially duplicated what’s in the fast track, so everything on the Basho site should work as described in the ‘devrel’ setup.
  4. I’ve added SAGA (System for Automated Geoscientific Analysis) and the RSAGA: SAGA Geoprocessing and Terrain Analysis in R package to the Spatial option.

Road Map

  1. Next cutesy release code name: “But officer – I was only driving one way!”
