Hi BiocDevelopers --
As mentioned previously, we have revised how biocLite works. Please try
and then installing your favorite package
The 'source()' command will download, install (first time only!) and
load the 'BiocInstaller' package.
biocLite does behave differently. It'll check for out-of-date packages
and ask, after installing MyFavoritePackage, whether you'd like to
update them. With no arguments, biocLite() installs just Biobase,
IRanges, and AnnotationDbi. biocLite(character()) will look for
out-of-date packages to update. And ?biocLite will provide a help page(!).
The revised behavior should only occur in the 'devel' version of R,
R-2.13 should behave as before.
Any feedback most welcome.
