Frames v0.5.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2018-08-28 // almost 4 years ago
    • 📇 Renamed the rgetf and rputf exported by the Frames module to rgetField and rputField. This avoids clashing with the same names exported by vinyl and further advances the process of eliminating the old Frames Col type in favor of vinyl's ElField.

    • ➕ Add a ShowCSV class rather than leaning on overburdened Show instances.

    • ➕ Add support for categorical column types: values of these types are one of a small number of textual values. Because they can only take on a small number of different text values, we can compactly represent values of these types as standard Haskell sum types.
