You should be getting 'marray' by default.  It is part of the 'cdna'
bundle in getBioC which is itself part of the default.

Right, there were a couple of package maintainers who did not update their
dependencies properly.  The marrayInput and marrayPlots packages are not
directly being downloaded and installed but gotten as part of the
dependency checking for these other packages.

Wait, are you downloading release 1.4 packages or 1.3 packages?
