[Bioc-devel] DT CRAN vs github versions

Dear all,

There have been some substantial changes in Rstudio's DT package
recently [1], in particular with respect to selecting rows in a
table. One problem is that these updates currently only live on github
(version 0.1.45) while CRAN is stuck at version 0.1 since September
2015. This has been reported in an issue [2] in October 2015, but it is
not clear when these updates will be pushed to CRAN.

One of my packages [3] currently fails because of this unmet
dependency. I believe that others (well, at least one Bioc developer) is
also waiting for an update. I was wondering if upgrading to the github
version on the Bioconductor build servers would be considered - while I
haven't done any systematic tests, I have not experienced any backwards

Best wishes,
