Hi all,

Bioconductor 2.14 (release) packages are now available for the Mavericks (Mac OS X 10.9) build of R.

If you install this version of R, you can install Mavericks packages by typing:


...and then using biocLite() to install the package(s) you want; for example:


There are still a few packages that aren't building on Mavericks. We have been in touch 
with their maintainers in most cases and hope that they'll be building soon. If you are 
the maintainer of one of these packages, feel free to contact us on bioc-devel if you
need help getting your package to build.
Most of the issues have to do with the fact that this version of R uses clang/clang++ 
instead of gcc/g++ to compile C/C++ code.

If you need to use a package that's not yet available on Mavericks, you can continue
to use the Snow Leopard build of R; it will work fine on Mavericks.

Mavericks binaries for BioC-devel (3.0) will be available in the coming weeks.
