Today we uploaded a new release of the
R (D)COM server for Windows to CRAN.
It is release 1.35

The software is much more stable, and there are
quite a few improvements.

Excerpts from the NEWS file:

RServerManager has been added. This provides a repository for R COM 
servers.  See the samples and the additional documentation

Partial rewrite of the code for SetSymbol() and GetSymbol().
Now arrays of VARIANTs are supported to some degree.
This makes the COM server accessible to many scripting languages

Sample usage for JScript, Python, and VBScript added

New tools library provided for Excel to remotely access COM server
without the need for local installation

The software should appear on CRAN in the "Other" section
within the next few days.
