Requiring R v4?

R version 4.0.0 was released in April 2020, and brought some nice improvements. However, I know many in OHDSI don’t have control over the version of R they’re using, so I’ve tried to make sure HADES continues to run on older R versions as well.

However, there are features in R >= 4.0.0 that I would like to use. (Specifically, errors and warnings are much easier to catch by ParallelLogger).

Is there anybody who would have a big problem if we require a minimum R version of 4?

i think it is not just requiring minimum R version. but renv does not solve the problem that many packages require some random v4 of R.
