I'm sure I used to be able to do

my.dependencies<- c("Depends", "Imports", "LinkingTo", "Suggests", "Enhances") install.packages("animation", lib = Sys.getenv("R_LIBS_USER"), dependecies = my.dependencies)

but now I get

Error in download.file(url, destfile, method, mode = "wb", ...) :

   unused argument(s) (dependecies = c("Depends", "Imports", "LinkingTo", "Suggests", "Enhances"))
Warning in download.packages(pkgs, destdir = tmpd, available = available, :

   download of package 'animation' failed

Did anything change?
