I released sp 1.2-0 to CRAN. Changes are:

- there is now support for SpatialMultiPoints and
SpatialMultiPointsDataFrame objects. If you never heard of multipoints,
you might not need them.
- control of "over" methods handled by rgeos is now finer grained, e.g.
allowing to exclude intersecting polygons that only touch in a point, or
- plot and spplot methods now accept OpenStreetMaps or Google map
background maps obtained by RgoogleMaps or ggmap.

https://cran.uni-muenster.de/web/packages/sp/news.html contains a news
file with more detail.

If you use package raster, make sure that you run update.packages(), or
else make sure you update/reinstall raster AFTER you update sp.
