We're warming up to the release of R-2.0.0 on Oct. 4 (aka 2004-10-04).
There will be two weeks of alpha releases followed by two weeks of
beta releases, starting today. The releases are made available via
and the first one is there already. In case of urgency or CRAN
failure, the releases will also be found at
Procedures have changed a bit due to the change from a CVS to SVN
source code repository over summer, and the fact that the core team
needed to cut back on remote logins to eachother's computers for
security reasons. Thus, there is a higher risk that something goes
wrong in the packaging this time, and so it is important to get the
tarballs tested thoroughly (only minimal checking takes place during
the build). As always, the need for testing is particularly important
for the less common platforms.
Please make sure to test the tarballs, building from rsync or SVN
checkouts is not quite the same thing.
