Not sure about source versions.  Windows binaries are available from
1.6 on, in <http://www.cran.mirrors.pair.com/bin/windows/contrib>.   

We have talked about when to drop 1.6; I'd like to keep it online for
a year after the next version comes out (which would mean 1.6 goes
away this spring, 1.7 in the fall, etc.).  This means that someone has
at least a year to upgrade their R installation.
