The most important news for this release is that Danny Smith is now a haven author in recognition of his significant and sustained contributions. He contributed the majority of improvements and bug fixes to this release.
Other improvements of note:
You can set custom variable widths when writing by setting the
widthattribute of the variable.
You can create FDA-compliant SAS transport files with haven, thanks to the addition of custom variable width support and some XPT writing related bug fixes.
write_dta()now supports Stata’s
StrLvariables. This means that it’s possible to write Stata files containing strings longer than 2045 characters, which was previously a hard upper limit.
