Happy New Year with R (2011, Fireworks!)

Yihui Xie 2011-01-01

Last year I posted an animation created in R to celebrate the new year, and this year I’ve got a more fabulous animation (available on CRAN)

Set Fireworks in R 2011

The above animation comes from the demo('fireworks') in the R package animation 2.0-0. Thanks for the contribution of Weicheng Zhu.

Another demo I did not mention on this Christmas was demo('Xmas2'):

Xmas snowflakes in R

Thanks for the contribution of Jing Jiao.

There are a whole bunch of new features in the animation package v2.0-0 (this version is a milestone); please just go and check out them by yourself.
