Thanks Josh!  I guess I am just lazy in that respect.  Linux users are used to building everything, but the R-maintainers really spoils all of us windows users by providing binaries of everything.

To be specific, the _binary_ is not available.  As always, you could have installed the source yourself.

There was an issue that prevented the binaries from being built.  I fixed it yesterday, but it must have been after the R-Forge daily build cycle.  The binaries should be available in less than 24 hours.
