Maybe I am getting something wrong, but I am pretty sure I noticed the change of package version for some Bioconductor packages in 3.2

In particular

-       IRanges_2.4.6.tar.gz \
+      IRanges_2.4.8.tar.gz \
-       Biostrings_2.38.3.tar.gz \
+      Biostrings_2.38.4.tar.gz \
-       rtracklayer_1.30.1.tar.gz \
+      rtracklayer_1.30.2.tar.gz \
-       GenomicFeatures_1.22.12.tar.gz \
+      GenomicFeatures_1.22.13.tar.gz \

where [-] indicates what it used to work, [+] what it works right now.

For instance, url

worked a month ago but now it doesn't anymore and url

works instead

I thought that once the package collection have been released (3.2 was released in October) that is frozen forever and changes only happen in the development release.

Am I missing something or got something wrong? At what point urls are considered stable?

Thank you very much

Best wishes
