R 3.6.2 was submitted a month ago for testing and reached stable 19
days ago . At any time, you can see which version is available in
stable (updates repo) and in testing for all supported Fedora and EPEL
versions in .

(Not so) fresh news: R officially supports Java , and many packages
on CRAN use Java (at least 170 by my count). So if you simply install
"R", you are requesting a *full* R installation, which of course
includes Java. However, if you don't want Java nor any of these
packages, R-core and R-core-devel do not depend on Java, as Ralf

Note though that the R-java bits do not depend on any specific version
of Java. Several versions of Java can coexist, and then you can switch
between them using alternatives .
