>From http://stat.ethz.ch/R-manual/R-devel/NEWS:

  "It is intended that this version will be released as R 3.0.0."

They've already changed the R-devel version number from 2.16.0 to
3.0.0, which causes biocLite() et al. to fail, e.g.

> source("http://www.bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")
Installing package into 'C:/Users/hb/R/win-library/3.0'
(as 'lib' is unspecified)
Warning: unable to access index for repository http://www.bioconductor.org/packa

   package 'BiocInstaller' is available as a source package but not as a binary

'biocLite.R' failed to install 'BiocInstaller', use
Warning message:
package 'BiocInstaller' is not available (for R Under development)
