OK, so the feature freeze for 1.5.0 is on as of now. Basically this
means that we will not add new features or API modifications before
the release on April 29.

The set of recommended packages will go into a similar feature freeze
one week from now, when the base package will enter a hard code freeze
(only critical bugs fixed), and a week further on, also the
recommended packages will go into code freeze and the whole thing will
have a final round of platform testing.

I.e. now is a bad time to complain about missing features, but it
might be a very good time to test your packages and scripts against
the new version and see whether they need to be changed and whether
they chase up any bugs. Notice that some of the changes in 1.5.0 have
known compatibility issues -- these are outlined in
http://developer.r-project.org/150update.txt .
