My testing at the the weekend showed that amongst the CRAN packages:

    foreign (in Devel)

need to be re-compiled.

gee does not need to be recompiled, but you need the version 4.13-3 now
on CRAN if you want to re-compile.

locfit will need a new version.

However, as the processing of the help files has been substantially
improved, you may well wish to remove and re-install all the packages.

It is expected that that packages installed under 0.99.0 will continue
to work with 1.0.0, but that 1.0.0 will impose more stringent conditions
to compile packages.
