New version of package 'packagefinder' with improved ranking of search results

A new version (0.1.5) of my 'packagefinder' package is now available on CRAN. The main change is an imroved ranking mechanism for search results that delivers more relevant results. Apart from that, a new shortcut function fp() is available that saves typing work when calling findPackage().

The 'packagefinder' package is designed to search for packages on CRAN directly from the R console with ease and comfort.
