There are two places to look for changes: the NEWS* files, and the
Subversion change log. You can find the former if you run
Only the current NEWS file has a main link, but there are links to the
older ones at the bottom of it.
The script editor is really old. It first appeared in R 2.0.0, with an
entry in the Windows-specific news file CHANGES. (The CHANGES file is
only linked into the help system on Windows. Since R 2.15.0 Windows
changes are announced in the same file(s) as other changes.) The
CHANGES entry was
- Added Rgui script editor by Chris Jackson.
This happened in svn revision 28991, which I committed in April, 2004.
