I've just put up R-0.61.3.tgz and R-0.61.2-0.61.3.diff.gz for
anonymous FTP on ftp.stat.auckland.ac.nz.
As usual: Don't get it from there unless you are in a desperate hurry.
It will migrate to the CRAN sites within a day or two. (See the FAQ
for the list of CRAN sites. And see the footer for the FAQ location....)
This release mainly fixes a couple of embarassing bugs in 0.61.2. It
is expected to be the last of the 0.61.x series (unless something
*really* ghastly is discovered), 0.62.0 being scheduled for release
some time in mid-June.
Here is the list of changes:
CHANGES IN R VERSION 0.61.3
o find(.) function [on wish of many...]
o Remove "Alpha" revision from opening blurb. Didn't make sense
with our development model
o set SHELL=/bin/sh in Makefile and use $(MAKE). Avoid use of
wildcards in $(MANSRC) for non-gnu "make" (notably Solaris).
o rhyper gave wrong results in degenerate cases
o Using get with pos=length(search()) or envir=NULL was
actually actually starting the search in .GlobalEnv.
o first=0 (or negative) argument to substr() caused trouble.
o 1%o%1 would segfault
o .Dyn.libs would linger in .RData causing code not to be dyn.loaded.
Now removed in .First(), if necessary
o system.time() expression could not access local variables in
