You're correct, Bernd, that the versions available by install.packages
from the repository at R-forge.R-packages.org appear to be out of
date.  Even the tar.gz file scm-latest.tar.gz is out of date
(apparently from January 04).

Those who can build a package from the source files can obtain the
latest version from the SVN archive at R-forge (instructions are given
at the SCM tab on the main project page).  I have just submitted the
package to Uwe's win-builder.R-project.org site to create a binary
Windows package, which I will make available on my web site as

Stefan: Will someone be able to check on what is happening to the
nightly builds?
