The latest version of R did not make it in the recently released  
Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon. As the title says, packages for version 2.6.0 of  
R are currently making their way to the CRAN mirrors. From the head  
of the README file:

R packages for Ubuntu on i386 are available. The plans are to support
at least the latest two Ubuntu releases and the latest LTS release. As
of October 2007, these are Gutsy Gibbon (7.10), Feisty Fawn (7.04) and
Dapper Drake (6.06), respectively. Up-to-date packages for version
2.6.0 of R for Edgy Eft (6.10) remain available, but support for this
Ubuntu release is being phased out for the next R release.

See http://cran.r-project.org/bin/linux/ubuntu/README.html for the  
complete file.

Ubuntu users who have not already done so should consider subscribing  
to the R-SIG-Debian mailing list where Debian (and Ubuntu) issues are  
discussed and where such announcements are usually posted.

Please report any problems using the binary packages to me.
