[R-pkg-devel] Namespace: summary of all undefined globals

The "release branch", currently 3.2.x, by principle contains patch releases of 3.2.0 (i.e. bug fix releases; we do occasionally let new features slip in, but only if they are truly orthogonal to existing code, which is usually not the case in the QA/QC areas). If something was in r-devel in July, then it will have been slated for 3.3.0. 

The most obvious way to get hold of the feature is to install/build a current version of R-devel. Otherwise, you have to port the code to the release branch yourself.
