I've just upgraded to 1.3.1. The new installer SetupR.exe is wonderful!
Brian! Also install.packages() works well.

A few questions, though.

1. There seems to be no help on tseries.

2. The old packages from my earlier installation of R appear along with the
packages in the html packages help file. I find that I can load these packages
still, with a lot of searching noise coming from the disk drive. Now this may
be an advantage, but I will surely want to junk some of these old packages
soon. I wonder if things will get messy at this point?

3. Some familiar old packages are gone. I wonder where their functionality is
now? I'm thinking of (for me) ctest, eda, lqs, modreg, mva, splines, stepfun,
tcltk. (I won't ask this about ts - maybe I can use ts help for tseries
