ggplot2 ------------------------------------------------------------

ggplot2 is a plotting system for R, based on the grammar of graphics,
which tries to take the good parts of base and lattice graphics and
avoid bad parts. It takes care of many of the fiddly details
that make plotting a hassle (like drawing legends) as well as
providing a powerful model of graphics that makes it easy to produce
complex multi-layered graphics.

To install or update, run:
install.packages(c("ggplot2", "plyr"))

ggplot2 0.8.7 (2010-03-03) ----------------------------------------

* coord_map gains xlim and ylim arguments to control region of projection
* corrected label generation for computed aesthetics (..x..) and special
  names (`x x`)
* fullseq: now always returns vector of length two, even when range is 0
* geom_point legend takes more care to ensure that fill colours will be shown
* legend: fixed scale merging bug when labels were set manually
* scale_area: gains a legend argument like all other scales
* scale_colour_brewer: gains na.colour argument to set colour of missing
* stat_bin2d: fix typo in breaks calculation
* stat_bin: deals with floating point rounding issues using the same
  algorithm as base::hist
* stat_density2d: fixed bug when contour = FALSE (Thanks to Takahashi Kohske)
