# Version 2.1.0 Unreleased

• New arguments n.chars and max.chars for checkCharacter() and checkString().
• Checks for integerish now compare the tolerance with the difference to the nearest integer with > instead of >= to allow specifying a tolerance of exactly 0 (#177).
• Coercion of double to integer in assertInt() and assertIntegerish() now round to the nearest integer instead of always rounding via trunc().
• Fixed an error message where the wrong variable name was reported by assert() (#182).

• Fixed a bug in checkFunction(..., ordered = TRUE) (#204).

# Version 2.0.0 2020-02-06

• Coercion now only affects double vectors.
• Improved error message for type detection in *List.
• Removed *Bit, the bit package is orphaned.

# Version 1.9.0 2019-01-09

• Error messages now provide more information about error locations, e.g., the position of the first missing element in a vector.
• If the object to check is missing, assert-functions now give a better error message, test-functions are always FALSE and expect-functions always raise an exception.
• Checks for missingness and sort order optimized for ALTREPs.
• The calling frame reported in assertions is now identical to the calling frame reported by R’s stop() function (#117).

• Added checkMultiClass to check for inheritance from a set of candidates
• Added checkDisjunct to check sets for being disjunct.
• Added abbreviation "p" to qassert to check for POSIXct objects.
• Added argument coerce to assertCount/assert_count, assertInt/assert_int and assertIntegerish/assert_integerish which optionally coerces x to integer after an successful assertion. This supersedes the functions asCount, asInt and asInteger (#77).

• New functions to test bit vectors implemented in package bit.
• New functions to test R6 classes implemented in package R6.
• Always load (not attach) the respective namespace if checking for objects of type data.table, tibble, R6 or bit. This ensures that all operations work as expected after the check.
• *Names with type="unnamed" now works with NULL.
• New argument must.include for *Names.
• Fixed possible protection stack imbalance as reported by rchk.

# Version 1.8.3 2017-07-03

• New argument null.ok (defaults to FALSE) for *Choice and *Class.
• *Subset now allows to pass empty vectors to choices.
• Improved error message for *Choice.
• The set family of functions is now more restrict regarding the class, e.g. they differentiate between factors and characters.
• *Character and *String now ignores missing values in regular expressions and for string length checks (using argument min.chars). To disallow missing values, set any.missing or na.ok, respectively.
• *Date now ignores missing values in for lower/upper bound checks. To disallow missing values, set any.missing to FALSE. Thanks to Will Beasley (@wibeasley) for the PR.
• Package microbenchmark is no longer strictly required to build the vignette. If not installed, some output and figures will be missing though.

• Functions *Count, *Int, *Number, *Integer, *Integerish and *Numeric do not accept logical values any more.
• checkAtomicVector is now more restrictive and prohibits a dimension symbol. Thus, a matrix is not considered an atomic vector any more.

• Added checkTibble.

# Version 1.8.1 2016-06-28

# Version 1.8.0 2016-06-06

• Most functions now support the handling of default arguments encoded as NULL via argument null.ok.
• Functions *File and *Directory are deprecated due to name clashes and will be removed in a future version. Please use *FileExists or *DirectoryExists instead.
• New helper function matchArg to provide a simple an easy way for partial argument matching in combination with an AssertCollection.
• Added alias functions for all check functions (check_*) to provide support for the underscore programming style in assert().

# Version 1.7.4 2016-04-08

• Compatibility with the upcoming testthat version.

• Fixed error message in convert functions: Variable name was not properly looked up by the heuristic.
• Fixed a bug in qassertr and qtestr where the error message was not properly generated if multiple rules were provided.
• New argument depth for qtestr to control the recursion depth while checking nested lists.

• Added checkDate.
• Argument .var.name of assert functions now has as default value (instead of missing).
• Fixed a bug in *OS functions.
• Fixed a bug in *Directory functions.
• New argument extension for the *File family of functions.

# Version 1.7.2 2016-02-25

• Added checkOS().
• Argument fixed for *Character functions now accepts a string instead of a boolean value and thus can directly be used for a substring search.
• New arguments min.chars, pattern, fixed and ignore.case for the *String family of functions.
• Exported helper functions wf (which.first) and wl (which.last).
• Now importing the new backports package for functions lengths() and dir.exists.

# Version 1.7.1 2016-02-02

• Fixed a segfault while checking an upper bound in qassert/qtest.
• Some minor speedups

• Added alias functions for all functions to support the underscore style, e.g. assert_numeric is the new alias for assertNumeric and test_matrix is the alias for test_matrix.

# Version 1.6.2 2015-07-26

• checkmate does not import testthat anymore in order to speed up package loading times and to keep the dependencies at a minimum. The expect_* family of functions can still be used, the namespace will be loaded on demand.

# Version 1.6.1 2015-07-17
