>>> R : Copyright 1998, Robert Gentleman and Ross Ihaka
>>> Version 0.61.2 Alpha (March 15, 1998)
So, there still is no "R beta" around....
- If I didn't know R, would I use a statistics software, if it was still
in alpha testing state?
- Is this really what we want to tell people about R?
More to the point:
I think, we could have called it beta, really.
Even though there still are known bugs.
S-plus 4.0 wasn't even called beta...
==> Should we plan to release
0.61.3 Beta ?
