Windows binaries at CRAN (bin/windows/Windows-NT/base) have been updated
to R-1.2.2. See below for a list of Windows-specific changes.
(for the R-core team)
Windows-specific changes to R
The long-running saga of importing R metafiles into Word is over;
lines are now visible in screen previews in Word. It was necessary to
use `geometric' rather than `cosmetic' pens to achieve scalable line
widths in metafiles: Word was failing to show lines drawn with
bringToTop() now works with MDI child windows as well as SDI windows.
Rcmd build/check use a different check for a directory, to work around
a bug in (some versions of) Windows Perl.
The datetime code has been modified to work around a problem reported
on a Win98 machine which caused times to be reported in GMT. (This
seems a bug in a particular version of msvcrt.dll and few machines
were affected.) A side-effect of the changes is that the timezone
names reported are usually more sensible (but sometimes less).
File etc/Makeconf-tests was missing from rw102Xsp.zip.
Rcmd SHLIB now supports compilation from C++ sources.
Rterm now saves and resets the console window title.
On Win2k, system(intern=TRUE) was failing to reset stderr to the console.
