  • subset() is not S3-generic - this improves some tricks that rely on lazy evaluation of function arguments
  • A new reversed() function allows to get a copy of a factor or a survey item object with levels or, respectively, codes in reverse order.
  • If recode() permutes existing codes, the value labels are applied appropriately.
