I've put up at
a (15Mb) `release candidate' of rw1030. It's a snapshot of the complete
release but not everything (especially the recommended packages) is in
I would particularly be interested in feedback on two points:
1) The claim is that utilities like Rcmd check now work on 16-bit versions
of Windows. Certainly with the latest perl (626) I was able to do all I
tested, including installing and checking bundles, on Windows 98.
2) There are inbuilt capabilities to download files (and more), and
update.packages() can be run from a menu. Does this work on old low-end
systems? If not, does the alternative given in CHANGES work?
Also on anything else ... we will be doing more checking before release.
