[R-pkgs] Release of wbstats 0.2 on CRAN

Piburn, Jesse O.
Hi all

I'm happy to announce a new version of wbstats is now available on CRAN.

wbstats is an R package for searching and downloading data from the World Bank API that includes access to all annual, monthly, and quarterly indicators

in addition to bug fixes. Version 0.2 now

  *   Uses version 2 of the World Bank API. This includes data that is unavailable in the previous world bank API
  *   Has the ability to return data in a "wide" format (indicators are columns) with the return_wide = TRUE option
  *   More explicit error messaging
  *   Has a lastUpdated field for each data source


CRAN: https://CRAN.R-project.org/package=wbstats
Github: https://github.com/GIST-ORNL/wbstats

A getting started with wbstats article, including examples with sf, ggplot2, and leaflet
