R for Mac OS X 2.10.1

R is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics. It is a GNU project which is similar to the S language and environment which was developed at Bell Laboratories (formerly AT&T, now Lucent Technologies) by John Chambers and colleagues. R can be considered as a different implementation of S. There are some important differences, but much code written for S runs unaltered under R.

R provides a wide variety of statistical (linear and nonlinear modelling, classical statistical tests, time-series analysis, classification, clustering, ...) and graphical techniques, and is highly extensible. The S language is often the vehicle of choice for research in statistical methodology, and R provides an Open Source route to participation in that activity.

One of R's strengths is the ease with which well-designed publication-quality plots can be produced, including mathematical symbols and formulae where needed. Great care has been taken over the defaults for the minor design choices in graphics, but the user retains full control.

-The PCRE library has been updated to version 8.00.
-R CMD INSTALL has new options --no-R, --no-libs, --no-data,
--no-help, --no-demo, --no-exec, and --no-inst to suppress
installation of the specified part of the package. These are
intended for special purposes (e.g. building a database
of help pages without fully installing all packages).
-The documented line-length limit of 4095 bytes when reading
from the console now also applies also to parse(file="")
(which previously had a limit of around 1024 bytes).
-A Bioconductor mirror can be set for use by setRepositories()
via the option "BioC_mirror", e.g. the European mirror can be
selected by options(BioC_mirror="")
-Double-clicking in a tk_select.list() list box now selects the
item and closes the list box (as happens on the Windows
select.list() widget).
