We’re pleased to announce a new minor version of dplyr. This fixes a number of bugs that crashed R, and considerably improves the functionality of select(). You can now use named arguments to rename existing variables, and use new functions starts_with(), ends_with(), contains(), matches() and num_range() to select variables based on their names. Finally, select() now makes a shallow copy, substantially reducing its memory impact. I’ve also added the summarize() alias for people from countries who don’t spell correctly ;)

For a complete list of changes, please see the github release, and as always, you can install the latest version with install.packages("dplyr").
