use_version: Increment package version

Description Usage Arguments See Also Examples

View source: R/version.R

Description

use_version() increments the "Version" field in DESCRIPTION, adds a new heading to NEWS.md (if it exists), and commits those changes (if package uses Git). It makes the same update to a line like PKG_version = "x.y.z"; in src/version.c (if it exists).

use_dev_version() increments to a development version, e.g. from 1.0.0 to 1.0.0.9000. If the existing version is already a development version with four components, it does nothing. Thin wrapper around use_version().
