Windows binaries and source at CRAN (bin/windows/Windows-NT/base) have
been updated to R-0.63.3 (now at Wien, in one/two days to the
other mirrors). 


The beginnings of a FAQ (RHOME/rw-faq).

Programs can be launched from all shells: the full path to the
executable is not needed.

Configurable fonts in the graphics devices by the file Rdevga (?Rdevga).

Workspaces are saved in XDR format, and so can be shared with most
Unix implementations of R.

Printer and metafile graphics devices (?win.print and ?win.metafile).

Consistent handling of start directory for dialogs and the working
directory across versions of R. Improved handling of R directories 
via the new environmental variable R_HOME (look to the README).

An improved and enhanced system() function (?system and ?shell). 

Windows-specific help files where necessary.

Better support for ESS.

Better support for the installation of pre-compiled packages


Pre-compiled packages for this version of R are provided by 
Brian D. Ripley and available CRAN/binaries/Windows-NT/contrib.
