> 1 ANNOUNCING ESS
> The ESS Developers proudly announce the release of ESS 15.03
> Emacs Speaks Statistics (ESS) provides an intelligent, consistent
> interface between the user and the software. ESS interfaces with
> R/S-PLUS, SAS, BUGS/JAGS, Stata and other statistical analysis packages
> under the UNIX, GNU Linux, Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X and other
> operating systems. ESS is a package for the GNU Emacs and XEmacs text
> editors whose features ESS uses to streamline the creation and use of
> statistical software. ESS knows the syntax and grammar of statistical
> analysis packages and provides consistent display and editing features
> based on that knowledge. ESS assists in interactive and batch execution
> of statements written in these statistical analysis languages.
> ESS is freely available under the GNU General Public License (GPL).
> Please read the file COPYING which comes with the distribution, for more
> information about the license. For more detailed information, please
> read the README files that come with ESS.

> 1.3 Requirements
> ESS is most likely to work with current/recent versions of the following
> statistical packages: R/S-PLUS, SAS, Stata, OpenBUGS and JAGS.
> ESS supports current, and recent, stable versions of GNU Emacs
> (currently, specifically, the 23.x and 24.x series;
> alpha/beta/pre-release versions are NOT SUPPORTED). Non-Windows users
> beware: GNU Emacs 24.3 is preferable to 24.1 or 24.2: these broken
> builds suffer from bug 12463
> <http://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=12463> which will cause
> emacs and ESS to get progressively slower over time.
> Due to XEmacs lacking some features that ESS requires, ESS support of
> XEmacs ends with ESS 12.04-4. This decision will be re-visited in the
> future as XEmacs continues to sync with GNU Emacs.
> To build the PDF documentation, you will need a version of TeX Live
> or texinfo that includes texi2dvi (BEWARE: recent TeX Live, and some
> texinfo RPMs, do NOT include texi2dvi).
> 1.4 Stability
> All recent released versions are meant to be release-quality versions.
> While some new features are being introduced, we are cleaning up and
> improving the interface. We know that there are many remaining
> opportunities for documentation improvements, but all contributors are
> volunteers and time is precious. Patches or suggested fixes with bug
> reports are much appreciated!
> 1.5 Mailing List
> There is a mailing list for discussions and announcements relating to
> ESS. Join the list by sending an e-mail with "subscribe ess-help" (or
> "help") in the body to <ess-help-request using stat.math.ethz.ch>;
> contributions to the list may be mailed to <ess-help using stat.math.ethz.ch>.
> Rest assured, this is a fairly low-volume mailing list.
> The purposes of the mailing list include
> * helping users of ESS to get along with it.
> * discussing aspects of using ESS on Emacs and XEmacs.
> * suggestions for improvements.
> * announcements of new releases of ESS.
> * posting small patches to ESS.
> 1.6 Reporting Bugs
> Please send bug reports, suggestions etc. to
> <ESS-bugs using stat.math.ethz.ch>
> The easiest way to do this is within Emacs by typing
> 'M-x ess-submit-bug-report'
> This also gives the maintainers valuable information about your
> installation which may help us to identify or even fix the bug.
> If Emacs reports an error, backtraces can help us debug the problem.
> Type "M-x set-variable RET debug-on-error RET t RET". Then run the
> command that causes the error and you should see a *Backtrace* buffer
> containing debug information; send us that buffer.
> Note that comments, suggestions, words of praise and large cash
> donations are also more than welcome.
