haven 1.1.2

We are very pleased to announce the release of haven 1.1.2. haven allows R to read and write various data formats used by other statistical packages: SAS, SPSS, and STATA. Below, we highlight a few of the updates and fixes. For a complete list of changes, please see the release notes.

This version has improved handling for non-ASCII characters. haven can now read and write non-ASCII paths in R 3.5, and write_dta() now allows non-ASCII variable labels for Stata versions 14 and above.

read_sav() now accepts .zsav files; .zsav files can be written with write_sav() by setting compress = TRUE.

This release also incorporates updates from Evan Miller’s ReadStat C library, including the ability to read and write Stata 15 files.
