As announced by the R Core Team, the next update to R will be 2.11.1 to be released on May 31. Despite being a minor-minor version increment, this release is expected to sport at least one new feature: BIC (in package stats4) will work with multiple fitted models, like AIC does. There will also be some improvements to the installation process, and a few bug fixes (mainly for some pretty obscure cases: the level of detail these fixes go to is a testament to the quality of R).
Look for the updated sources on May 31, with binaries to follow soon after.
