A binary distribution of R 0.90.0 for Windows is available at 
http://cran.r-project.org (in bin/windows/windows-NT/base). 
It should run on  Windows 9X/NT/2000 systems. 

Windows News:
We made a determined attempt to quote paths which might contain spaces,
and almost all cases work. Be careful with external unzip, pager and editor
programs that these do handle quoted paths.

Rterm can be interrupted by Ctrl-C as well as Ctrl-Break. Fast
typing should not give problems in interactive use.

Better formatting of math expressions in graphics labels, legends, ...
(but only if font is True Type since it seems not possible to get
per-char font metric information for raster fonts).

Support for GIF format bitmaps has been removed, but support for PNG, 
JPEG and BMP has been added. This can be done via the File menu on the
graphics window, savePlot() or dev.print to the new devices png(), bmp() 
and jpeg(), which can also be used directly.

PDF versions of the (draft) manuals are available in file rw0900d.zip
and install into rw0900/doc/manual.  These can be read in Acrobat
Reader from the Manuals sub-menu of the Help menu provided they and
the reader (http://www.adobe.com) are installed.

The installer will install packages in the library directory if the
installation directory path ends in rw0900.

You can install packages by

    install.packages("/path/to/mypkg.zip", CRAN=NULL)
