The 3.2.4-revised version turned out to give trouble for some of CRAN's subsystems.

Accordingly, a rebadged version 3.2.5 is now released; it only differs in the version number and a few clean-up items. If you have a working install of 3.2.4-revised there should be no reason to upgrade it.

You can get the source code from


or wait for it to be mirrored at a CRAN site nearer to you.

For the R Core Team,

Peter Dalgaard

The relevant NEWS file entries (relative to 3.2.4) are



    • format.POSIXlt() behaved incorrectly in R 3.2.4.  E.g. the output
      of format(as.POSIXlt(paste0(1940:2000,"-01-01"), tz = "CET"),
      usetz = TRUE) ended in two "CEST" time formats.

    • A typo in the Makefile for src/extra/xz prevented builds of
      liblzma.a. (Notice that this will become unbundled in 3.3.0.)
