I am pleased to announce the first beta release of RGtk2, the R binding 
to GTK 2.0 (actually 2.8.0). RGtk2 works on all three major platforms 
(Linux, Mac, and Windows) and allows one to construct full-featured 
GUI's from within R.

RGtk2 offers virtually complete bindings to the latest GTK, as well as 
some of its dependencies, including Cairo and Pango, and some extras 
like libglade and GtkMozEmbed (on Linux). Almost the entire package was 
documented by transforming the original (C language oriented) API 
documentation to the R perspective.

Please see the following website for details and downloads: 

You'll also find the Cairo R graphics device there, which lets you 
display R graphics within your RGtk2 GUI.

Please send any bug reports to me.

Michael Lawrence
