I've put up R-0.63.2.tgz up for FTP from Auckland some minutes ago.
As usual, don't get it from there unless you are desperate, but wait
for it to be mirrored at a CRAN site near you within a day or two.
For those who *are* desperate, I've left a copy in
(Be gentle, that's my desktop PC!)
There's also a version split in two for floppies and a patch file if
you prefer that.
This version is mainly to fix a messup with attributes on dataframe
variables that caused trouble for survival4. Completeness in
bug-fixing is not attempted.
Here is the relevant part of the NEWS file:
CHANGES IN R VERSION 0.63.2
o sink() has new `append' argument.
o new function rle().
o plot(.) and curve(.) also accept a function as first argument.
o new function loglin().
o pretty() has new arguments and now better "obeys" its `n' arg.
Internal GPretty() [implicitly used by axis(.., at = NULL,..)
now uses pretty.
o new generic function aggregate() with methods for data frames
and time series.
o data set `euro' with Euro conversion rates.
o new function jitter() [slightly wmore useful than S's].
o model.frame(,subset=) no longer loses contrasts
o `make install' copied the R shell script a second time without
getting RHOME right (thus also breaking R CMD check). Fixed.
o help() after help.start() did not work if topic was not equal
to filename (e.g. rnorm is found in Normal.html)
o fix the 0.63.1 fix for abbreviate(.); improved doc.
o predict.mlm(.) couldn't have worked with `newdata'.
o model.frame/na.omit bug for matrices and Surv objects.
o mean( <data.frame> ) now doesn't return sum(.) anymore.
o str(.) doesn't give extraneous "..." in rare cases anymore.
o Added documentation for group methods ("Math", "Ops","Summary").
o R_PAPERSIZE is used for Rd2dvi and at configure time for the
`make dvi' parts.
o hist(i) now also works for e.g., i = -1, 0, or 1.
o range() now works on dataframes (uses c(..., recursive=T))
o pretty(.) does not loop infinitely anymore in very extreme cases.
o math functions should work better on dataframes now
o plot(.., type = 'h', log = 'y') now works ...
o plot.factor(x, y, ...) of two factors now makes
o use object$prior.weights in add1.glm, drop1.glm (Brian Ripley)
o rnorm(1,mean=m,sd=0) returns m, not NaN (Ben Bolker)
o runif(n, a,a) now returns rep(a,n) instead of NaNs.
