I currently have version 4.1 of ape installed on my computer (Mac OS X, R 
3.4.2) which appears to currently be the most up-to-date on CRAN. However, I am 
trying to get the testing version of ape, because I know that there have been 
changes made that I would like to take advantage of without waiting for them to 
show up on CRAN. I have tried using the commands on the website, and they do 
not show any new versions available. Specifically, using `old.packages`, 
nothing is returned:

> old.packages(repos = "http://ape-package.ird.fr/";)

And trying to download anyway gets me an error:

> download.packages("ape", ".", repos = "http://ape-package.ird.fr/";)
trying URL 'http://ape-package.ird.fr/src/contrib/ape_0.0.1.tar.gz'
Error in download.file(url, destfile, method, mode = "wb", ...) : 
  cannot open URL 'http://ape-package.ird.fr/src/contrib/ape_0.0.1.tar.gz'
In addition: Warning message:
In download.file(url, destfile, method, mode = "wb", ...) :
  cannot open URL 'http://ape-package.ird.fr/src/contrib/ape_0.0.1.tar.gz': 
HTTP status was '404 Not Found'
Warning in download.packages("ape", ".", repos = "http://ape-package.ird.fr/";) :
  download of package ‘ape’ failed
     [,1] [,2]

This is presumably because http://ape-package.ird.fr/src/contrib/PACKAGES 
points to 0.0.1. I don’t immediately see an option to specify a version of the 
package (and indeed I don’t know what version I would put in). Do I need to be 
running a development version of R to get the newest versions of ape? 

Thanks for any help,
Elizabeth Purdom
