The build system rolled up R-3.5.3.tar.gz (codename "Great Truth") this morning.

The list below details the changes in this release. This is the wrap-up release for the 3.5.x series, so actually, not much has happened.

You can get the source code from


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

Binaries for various platforms will appear in due course.

For the R Core Team,

Peter Dalgaard

This is the relevant part of the NEWS file:



    * Detection of flags for C++98/11/14/17 has been improved: in
      particular if CXX??STD is set, it is tried first with no
      additional flags.


    * New macro F_VISIBILITY as an alternative to F77_VISIBILITY.  This
      will become the preferred form in R 3.6.0.


    * writeLines(readLines(fnam), fnam) now works as expected, thanks
      to Peter Meissner's PR#17528.

    * setClassUnion() no longer warns, but uses message() for now, when
      encountering "non local" subclasses of class members.

    * stopifnot(exprs = T) no longer fails.
