Using R-devel, I get

** Hopkins NEWS and Notes **

News and updates for the R installation will be sent to bit-help, so
consider subscribing

An automatic user library has been created (in case it did not already
exist) as
install.packages and R CMD INSTALL will automatically install to this
directory, so there is no need for a -l or a lib argument to these

Loading required package: utils
> source("http://www.bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")
Bioconductor version 3.0 (BiocInstaller 1.16.1), ?biocLite for help

Why?  In the past it would auto-detect my R version and automatically use
Bioc devel.  Also, I get

> useDevel(TRUE)
Error: 'devel' version requires a more recent R

Enter a frame number, or 0 to exit

1: useDevel(TRUE)
2: .stop("'devel' version requires a more recent R")
