» I don't know when the default of dependencies (or depend in short) option in install.packages() has been changed to 'NA'. It's default used to be 'depend=TRUE'. :confused:

Never (see the NEWS).
The default was/is install.packages(..., dependencies = NA). The man-page states:

The default, NA, means c("Depends", "Imports", "LinkingTo").
