This question popped up on the bioc-devel list, I'm forwarding it here.

I know that sources for R-2.14 alpha can be found here:


But the OP (below) is asking about Windows binaries.

According to the BioC release plan, we should use R-2.14.0 devel-alpha
to check our packages.
But on cran, we can either choose R 2.13.2
(http://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/base/) or R 2.15.0 devel
(http://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/base/rdevel.html). Am I missing
something? And will it again be possible to get the binaries for
Windows of the 2.14.0 devel-alpha?

Dear Bioconductor developers,

This announcement is for package authors who are in the process of
developing packages for inclusion in the upcoming 2.9 release of
Bioconductor in October.

The deadline to make a submission for this release is going to be
October 10th, 2011. Packages submitted after the deadline will probably
not provide us with sufficient time for inclusion in this release.
Earlier submissions are encouraged as it provides more time to correct
issues raised during the review process and probably has an improved
chance of making it into the release.

If you do not have your package ready in time for this deadline, your
package will still be included in our development branch of Bioconductor
and will be scheduled for inclusion in the subsequent release version of

Other important deadlines to consider are listed on our Release
schedule. If you have packages in the repository (and most of you do),
it is probably a good idea to follow the following link and see the
other deadlines that are approaching.
