The latest update to Revolution R Open, RRO 3.2.1, is now available for download from MRAN. This release upgrades to the latest R engine (3.2.1), enables package downloads via HTTPS by default, and adds new supported Linux platforms.
Revolution R Open 3.2.1 includes:
- The latest R engine, R 3.2.1. Improvements in this release include more flexible character string handling, reduced memory usage, and some minor bug fixes.
- Multi-threaded math processing, reducing the time for some numerical operations on multi-core systems.
- A focus on reproducibility, with access to a fixed CRAN snapshot taken on July 1, 2015. Many new and updated packages are available since the previous release of RRO — see the latest Package Spotlight for details. CRAN packages released since July 1 can be easily (and reproducibly!) accessed with the checkpoint function.
- Binary downloads for Windows, Mac and Linux systems, including new support for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 and 11, and openSUSE 13.1.
- 100% compatibility with R 3.2.1, RStudio and all other R-based applications.
