Revolution R Open, the enhanced open source R distribution from Revolution Analytics and Microsoft, is now available for download. This update brings multi-threaded performance to the latest update to the R engine from the R Core Group, which includes several improvements and bug fixes. Significant amongst these is default support for HTTPS connections, making it easy to follow the best practices for R security recommended by the R Consortium.
Revolution R Open uses a CRAN snapshot taken on August 27, 2015; you can review highlights of new and updated R packages introduced since RRO 3.2.1 at our Package Spotlight page. Don't forget you can always use packages released after this date using the built-in checkpoint package or by using any CRAN mirror. (By the way, the checkpoint package also now downloads packages using HTTPS.)
RRO 3.2.2 is available for download now at the link below for Windows, Mac and Linux systems, and is 100% compatible with R 3.2.2. We welcome comments, suggestions and other discussion on the RRO Forums. If you're new to Revolution R Open, here are some tips to get started, and there are many data sources you can explore with RRO. Thanks go as always to the contributors to the R Project upon which RRO is built.
