A new version of R for Windows is available from CRAN in directory
bin/windows/windows-NT. This supersedes rw0630, rw63-io, bdr0631 and earlier
versions.  It runs on Windows 95, 98, NT4 (on i386), at least.

There are two executables, Rgui.exe and Rterm.exe.


  Will run from NT command line.

  No `tricks' are needed for animated graphics.

  The windows are much more responsive.

  R commands can be interrupted by Esc.

  Rterm allows batch mode operation and can also be run in 
  inferior-R-mode under NTEmacs.

  There is a history mechanism for graphics plots.
  Graphics can be copied to the clipboard.

  Commands history is saved between session (only by Rgui.exe).
  Saved images and user profile are called .RData and .Rprofile as under Unix
  (before they were RData and Rprofile).


Pre-compiled packages for this (and hopefully all subsequent versions)
are available at CRAN/bin/windows-NT/contrib.
