Microsoft R Open (MRO), Microsoft's enhanced distribution of open source R, has been upgraded to version 3.3.3, and is now available for download for Windows, Mac, and Linux. This update upgrades the R language engine to R 3.3.3, upgrades the installer, and updates the bundled packages.
R 3.3.3 makes just a few minor fixes compared to R 3.3.2 (see the full list of changes here), so you shouldn't encounter any compatibility issues when upgrading from MRO 3.3.2. For CRAN packages, MRO 3.3.3 points to CRAN snapshot taken on March 15, 2017 but as always, you can use the built-in checkpoint package to access packages from an earlier date (for compatibility) or a later date (to access new and updated packages).
MRO is supported on Windows, Mac and Linux. MRO 3.3.3 is 100% compatible with R 3.3.3, and you can use it with any of the 10,000+ packages available on CRAN. Here are some highlights of new packages released since the last MRO update.
