Versions of

	sm   (delete src/Makefile: I'll get the version on CRAN changed)

for R-0.64 are now on CRAN. Please note that spatial (in the VR bundle)
and sm really do need 0.64 as we use the platform-independent file
handling, and sm uses chull.

This will be the last version of the VR5.x software for the second 
edition, as a new more `R friendly' third edition is due out in July. The
software for that is now available for pretest (including for R-0.64 on
UNix and Windows) at


It is almost completely backwards compatible (just no support for
survival4) with eariler versions but has new datasets and functions.
Some, such as ppr and lqs, are already in R.

Windows versions:

I have split the Windows contributed collection into current and
rw063x sections: the mirroring on CRAN caught the middle of the change
but should be complete by tomorrow when we plan to release rw0640.
One nice new feature is the larger packages can have their help and 
examples files stored in zip archives, thereby saving a lot of space on
some file systems.
