Dear R-help list members,
Version 2.0-0 of the Rcmdr package is now on CRAN and should appear presently on the various CRAN mirrors. As its number implies, this version represents a milestone in the development of the package, which first appeared on CRAN more than 10 years ago. The transition to version 2.0-0 reflects both substantial upgrades to the Rcmdr interface in the new release (see the release notes below) as well as accumulated changes in recent versions. Of particular note beyond the interface improvements is the integration of HTML and PDF report generation via the knitr and markdown packages.
>From the package NEWS file:
