Feather with R 3.5.0

R 3.5.0 required reinstalling and updating a number of packages, which usually caused no problems. However, I haven't been able to get the feather package to work. I get the same type of error as with other packages Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘feather’: package ‘feather’ was installed by an R version with different internals; it needs to be reinstalled for use with this R version but looking on CRAN there doesn't appear to be a current version (see attached image). I'd never seen 'not available' for a CRAN current release and was wondering what this means for the future of the feather package - is it temporarily unavailable, permanently unavailable, etc.? Does anyone know?

There are no windows binaries available, but if you have RTools installed on Windows you should be able to build the package from source.
