Hej!

I was just upgrading from Bioc 3.7 to 3.8 and by reading the Installation instruction at https://www.bioconductor.org/install, I realised that it might be good if these were extended to:

1. Detail how one can migrate from a previous version to the next; i.e. running BiocManager::install(version="3.8") at present to move from 3.7 to 3.8
2. Add more details about the version argument, in particular adding a section to explain how to switch back from "devel" to "current" would be a good use case

Best,

Nico

Hi Nico,

Thank you for your feedback. We have made a small adjustment to theinstall page on Bioconductor.org. The pull request can be seen here: https://github.com/Bioconductor/bioconductor.org/pull/18

To (sort of) answer your question, we have detailed how to do 1 and 2 in the vignette and we hope that by putting it in the install page, the BiocManager vignette will be more visible.

You can refer to the vignette here: https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/BiocManager/vignettes/BiocManager.html

Best regards,
Marcel

Hej Marcel! Thanks for the quick feedback. And yes, that solution works for me. I had actually not thought that BiocManager would have a vignette; I just pictured it like a wrapper around install.packages; my bad.
