Version 0.4.4 of odfWeave is available from CRAN. A Windows binary
should be available shortly.

This version requires base R version 2.3.1 or greater.

Changes from the last version include

characters can be included in R code. See the file "testCases.odt" in
the examples directory for an example

  - Image specifications, such as format and size, have been moved out
of odfWeaveControl. They are now controlled by the functions
getImageDefs and setImageDefs. This change allows the user to easily
modify the image properties in code chunks so that figures can have
different sizes or types throughout the document.

more meaningful error is reported. This should help users better
understand the odfWeave software dependencies. 

  - A new XML parser was written so that users no longer need to turn
off the "size optimization" feature in OpenOffice. 

  - Three bugs were fixed:

    o If the user specified a relative path to the source file, an error

    o Fonts contained in the style definitions are automatically
registered in the ODF document. Previously, fonts that specified using
setStyleDefs but were not used in the document were ignored. Now, the
fonts found using getStyleDefs() at the start of odfWeave execution are
added to the document.

    o A new function, odfTmpDir, is now used to set the path to the
working directory. A new directory is created in the location of
