The windows replacement is
The cairo replacements are just two bundles, windows or OS X - containing
replacements for R 2.15.3, 3.0.3 and 3.1.2. You just extract the relevant one
for your R version.
The windows builds of R packages snpStats x.x.x.8 and snpMatrix 188.8.131.52
were done with link-time optimization. (uploaded last weekend). I'd be interested
if anybody wants to compare the speed of the 1000 genome code
vs 184.108.40.206 on windows. LTO on linux is 10+% faster.
There is a new bug fix in GLM related stuff in snpStats x.x.x.8 . I'd be interested
in anybody supplies an example to demonstrate snpStats 1.17.0 being buggy also.
I haven't decided what to do with link-time optimization of the OS X build -
Xcode/Clang is the default on OS X though gcc is more familiar
(https://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-testresults/2014-11/msg00268.html) so I probably
will do both and see which one is better at some point.
The package uploads (12 in all, 2 packages x 3 R versions x 2 builds)
are now divided by R versions - those in unversion'ed directories are still for R 2.x.

updated to cairo-1.12.18 and freetype-2.5.4. The official R
built with early freetype 2.4.x and cairo 1.11(?) and had a
number of issues
with some windows and mac system fonts; also the one in the

and therefore can interfere with other GUI applications' use

While doing that, I found that the official
R-3.1.*-mavericks.pkg are crippled, compared
to R-3.1.*-snowleopard.pkg. They have tiff functionality
missing. Here are the sizes of
the official binaries':
The next thing I am doing is building the replacement for
the cairo.dll's in the offical R windows binaries.
Just watch out in the next few days in the same directory.

I have finished with snpMatrix 220.127.116.11 5 days ago. Some of
you may notice the documentations
are already out - 19 months about 400 commit since
18.104.22.168, it comes with a snpStats compatibility
mode; when that mode is on, about 1/3 of its internals are
swapped to their snpStats-equivalent
versions. Initially synchronized to snpStats x.x.x.8 - and I
already mentioned that it is because of another
GLM related bug, found on top of x.x.x.7. Sigh.
snpMatrix 22.214.171.124 and snpStats x.x.x.8 are now really just
waiting for me to finish with the cairo
stuff (for R 3.1.x). The impatient can just read the new
