# forcats 0.2.0

## New functions

• as_factor() which works like as.factor() but orders levels by appearance to avoid differences between locales (#39).

• fct_other() makes it easier to convert selected levels to “other” (#40)

• fct_relabel() allows programmatic relabeling of levels (#50, @krlmlr).

## Minor improvements and bug fixes

• fct_c() can take either a list of factors or individual factors (#42).

• fct_drop() gains only argument to restrict which levels are dropped (#69) and no longer adds NA level if not present (#52).

• fct_recode() is now checks that each new value is of length 1 (#56).

• fct_relevel() gains after argument so you can also move levels to the end (or any other position you like) (#29).

• lvls_reorder(), fct_inorder(), and fct_infreq() gain an ordered argument, allowing you to override the existing “ordered” status (#54).

# forcats 0.1.1
