Unfortunately it didn't make it to the Preferences UI, so you have to  
paste this in Terminal:

defaults write org.R-project.R auto.close.parens NO

If you want to revert back to the default you can use:

defaults delete org.R-project.R auto.close.parens

Sounds reasonable. I'll see if we can add that...

BTW: would it be helpful to have the ability to enable/disable brace  
completion separately for the console and the editor?
