Some things which it would be particularly helpful to have tested:
- FreeBSD. We believe we have a workaround and it has been tested by
Rainer Hurling, but tests of the actual beta tarball would be helpful.
- AIX. I am unclear if R currrently builds on AIX.
- Solaris 10. I believe that various people have now succeeded, but
it would be good to have positive feedback, especially if anyone has
the latest Sun compilers (Forte 9?).
- Korean. We have recently had contributed Korean translations of the
messages, Windows menus and installer. It looks like Korean to me, but
that's as far as it goes. So please test on Windows and on Unix-alikes,
the latter in both UTF-8 and EUC-KR if possible.
- Bleeding-edge OSes, e.g. anyone running Fedora Core 4 test 3? (These
often show up problems with bugs in the pre-release versions of
components such as X11 and compilers.)
- Windows: R for Windows can now be installed in a wide range of Western
European languages, some Eastern European ones, (Simplified) Chinese,
Japanese and Korean. Please test these. If you know
Catalan, Czech, Dutch, Hungarian, Norwegian, Polish, (European)
Portuguese or Slovenian please consider submitting translations for
the following phrases which will otherwise appear in English:
en.associate=Associate R with .RData files
en.dcom=Register R path for use by the (D)COM server
en.compact=Minimal user installation
