[R] dplyr or plyr or both?

I've set myself the task of learning about these packages, and about
tidy data concepts.

What is the relationship between plyr and dplyr?  Does the latter
replace the former (meaning I can concentrate on learning the latter)?
Or is there ever a need to use functions from both (meaning I should
learn both)?
