Hi all,

WriteXLS version 3.2.1 has been submitted to CRAN, with thanks to the CRAN maintainers.

This is a bug fix release with the following fixes:

1. When row.names = TRUE, the initial comments row, which contains the comments attributes for the data frame columns and is rbind()ed to the source data frame, was not properly identified by the included Perl script code, resulting in an error in the Excel file. Bug identified yesterday by Robert Zeigler via GitHub.

2. The rownames for the original data frame were not being properly preserved, hence were in error in the Excel file when row.names = TRUE. Picked up in the course of fixing the above bug.

Source tarballs of the updated package are being mirrored and binaries for Windows and OSX should appear in due course.
