The sp package provides class definitions for spatial data, and utilities for spatial data handling and manipulation.

The release of sp version 0.9-56 introduces changes in the ways in which Polygon, Polygons, and SpatialPolygons objects are created, moving from R code to compiled C code. Because of these changes, it is possible that users will see changed output. The package maintainers have tested as far as possible, and a beta release has been checked by some users, without any problems coming to light.

Further details are given in:


Should anyone see problems following this change, please contact me directly with a reproducible example.
