Bookdown Special Headers within Article Document Class

Bookdown has introduced a ton of great functionality, but I am having some issues with the single document output option. When

documentclass:
in the YAML header is set to
book
bookdown has no trouble recognizing and creating special headers, but if
documentclass:
is set to
article
bookdown is unable to render special headers. Here is a brief example:

---
title: "Untitled"
author: "John Doe"
date: "November 10, 2016"
documentclass: article
output: bookdown::pdf_document2
---

```{r setup, include=FALSE}
library(bookdown)
knitr::opts_chunk$set(echo = TRUE)
```

# Chapter One
# Chapter Two
# (APPENDIX) Appendix {-}
# Appendix A
# Appendix B


Is it possible to render documents of class
article
with special headers using Bookdown, or is this outside of Bookdown's functionality at this time?

Answer

I have updated bookdown on Github so that the article class will also be supported when you use these special headers. Please try the latest version (>= 0.2):

install.packages('bookdown')
