The sp package provides class definitions for spatial data, and utilities 
for spatial data handling and manipulation.

The release of sp version 0.9-56 introduces changes in the ways in which 
Polygon, Polygons, and SpatialPolygons objects are created, moving from R 
code to compiled C code. Because of these changes, it is possible that 
users will see changed output. The package maintainers have tested as far 
as possible, and a beta release has been checked by some users, without 
any problems coming to light.

Further details are given in:


Should anyone see problems following this change, please contact me 
directly with a reproducible example.
