The fourth release of the binb package just arrived on CRAN. binb regroups four rather nice themes for writing LaTeX Beamer presentations much more easily in in (R)Markdown. As a teaser, a quick demo combining all four themes follows; documentation and examples are in the package.

This release brings a few nice pull requests. Rob Hyndman, improved the Monash theme. Johan Larsson added support for slide notes, pgfpages and beamer options. Joseph Stachelek corrected the date setting in the Presento theme to reflect the date from the YAML header.
