(1) We've been unable to contact the maintainer to find out when the
official release of R 1.4.0 on Windows might be available.  As the
holidays shutdown is looming, last night I built a binary distribution
from the released sources and put the SetupR.exe and miniR* versions at

(This has the post-release mgcv_0.6-2.)

This is not the official release, so problem reports to me only, please.
(I'd be interested to hear, but am unlikely to be able to change anything
until 2002.)

(2) The bin/windows/contrib section on CRAN has been updated to include
the 1.4.0 versions of packages.  (On TUWien now, mirrored elsewhere soon.)
This means that update.packages() will pick up the latest versions. Some
of these may not work with rw1031 (VR and grid for sure, maybe others).
