Those are good news.

Please, what information is lacking in my first post?

I've looked at installed.packages() and it seems to me that quartz() is 
"bundled" with the "main software" more than installed with a given package.

Is it possible to pass height and width in pixels more than in inches 
working with 2.7.0 alfa?

As I read in http://developer.R-project.org/, R-alpha*.tar.gz packages 
are made automatically available, but I guess there is not *.dmg for 
these stages.

Thanks for your help,
