I have re-built all the compiled packages for R 1.2.0 for Windows, and the
set available in CRAN/bin/windows/contrib are now for rw1020.
If you are upgrading to rw1020, please replace all the compiled
packages you have downloaded by ones from this set.
There a few packages available for the first time:
RMySQL mlbench netCDF
and a few that are not yet running on 1.2.0 on any platform
hdf5 locfit wle (crashes with an array overrun).
Beware of the following (from the current rw-FAQ)
3.5 Loading a package fails.
Is the package compiled for this version of R? Many of the packages
need to be compiled for a fairly recent version, and in particular a
substantial minority need to be re-compiled for `rw1020'.
You can tell the version the package was compiled for by looking at the
`Built:' line in its `DESCRIPTION' file or at the `Version' tab of its
DLL (if it has one) in the `libs' directory. (Right-click on the DLL
in Windows Explorer, and select `Properties' or use the `DLL.version'
function inside R.) If there is no `Built:' line or version tab, the
package was compiled too long ago.
Packages built with the wrong version may well refuse to load, but they
might also load and crash R when in use. They might also run and give
Packages for rw1011 and earlier are still available in
CRAN/bin/windows/contrib/Old, but will not be updated (and I have taken
rw1011 off my machine).
