[ESS] Error loading R mode

I’ve just installed the latest version of ESS from github (14.05, the same problem occurs with the version currently available for download on the website). 

However when I try to switch into R mode via M-x R-mode I get an arrow and it seems to go into S mode instead. Here’s the error I get: 

ess-bp-recreate-all: Invalid function: with-silent-modifications

C-h f with-silent-modifications gives me

with-silent-modifications is a Lisp macro in `subr.el'.

and some description text. 

I’m running the following Emacs version:

GNU Emacs 24.3.1 (x86_64-apple-darwin, NS apple-appkit-1038.36) of 2013-03-13 on bob.porkrind.org

I’ve seen this error being asked about before but in that case using the latest ess version seems to have fixed it whereas that’s not the case for me.
