Debian packages of R-1.4.0 and R-1.4.0-recommended [1] have been uploaded and
are currently available at  These will run on any
current "testing" (aka "woody") or "unstable" (aka "sid") distribution. [2]

The next archive installation (around 14:00h Central time tomorrow) will move
these files into the package pool from where they will propagate via the
usual mirror sites.

The build daemons for the non-i386 architectures will then start to
complement the i386 release. We currently have 1.3.1 packages for alpha,
ia64, m68k, powerpc, sparc and s390. We will look into the currently missing
architectures (arm, hppa, mips, mipsel) but some of these do have (or had)
compiler problems which prevent the build process from completing. 

Regards, Dirk

[2] As I upgraded the build process, it becomes somewhat more difficult" to
recompile these packages on a Debian "stable" (aka "potato") release.  Doug
Bates and I will look into this, but cannot promise any ETA.

Good judgment comes from experience; experience comes from bad judgment.
