Hi all,

The next version of R is likely to be released in early October.  We
would like to plan for a Bioconductor release shortly following the R
release.  This means that BioC package developers should plan on
spending some time during September checking their package against
R-devel and making any needed improvements and fixes.

TENTATIVE DATES... these could change, but should give you an idea of
what to expect

     planning to contribute a package for the 1.9 release, please do
     so ASAP.  Contributed packages have to go through a review
     process which must be complete before 04 Sept.
