Version 1.2.0 of pmml has been released and is available from CRAN.

The pmml package (http://rattle.togaware.com/pmml.html) is part of the
Rattle data mining suite http://rattle.togaware.com. It generates
representations of analytic models built in R using the open standard
predictive modelling markup language (http://www.dmg.org/).

PMML represents analytic models in an application independent way so
that models developed in R can be loaded into other applications.

Supported models include: arules, hclust, kmeans, ksvm, lm (and glm),
nnet, rpart, and rsf. 

PMML consumers include Information Builders' C code generator (for
deployment of R generated models within Web Focus on all of their
supported platforms), Zementis' scoring engine or cloud computing
application (ADAPA), Teradata's Warehouse Miner and IBM's DB2.

A key update is the incorporation of a framework for dealing with data
transformations. This is ongoing work.

The pmml package is regularly updated and intermediate releases
(between the more stable CRAN releases) are always available using:

  install.packages("pmml", repos="http://rattle.togaware.com")

Comments, bugs, suggestions are always welcome.
