Ubuntu users on the amd64 platform will be pleased to know that up-to-
date binary R packages are now available from CRAN. Following the
policy for the i386 architecture, the supported Ubuntu releases are
the latest two Ubuntu releases and the latest LTS release. Currently,
these are Gutsy Gibbon (7.10), Feisty
Fawn (7.04) and Dapper Drake (6.06), respectively.
For instructions on obtaining these packages and further informatio,
please see the CRAN Ubuntu README file at
or, better yet, use your local CRAN mirror.
Please report any problems with the packages to the r-sig-debian
mailing list, where messages have a much bettter chance of being
noticed and swiftly replied to. In other words, please avoid posting
Ubuntu (or Debian, for that matter) specific questions to r-help.
Finally, kudos to Michael Rutter who stepped up as maintainer for the
amd64 Ubuntu packages.
