RStudio Package Manager 1.1.2 introduces beta support for Windows package
binaries. These binaries make it easier and faster to install R packages on
Windows Desktop. With this release, all the benefits of Package Manager are
available to desktop users including versioned repositories, curated subsets of
CRAN, centralized access to CRAN, Git, local packages, and usage tracking.
Now data scientists on Windows can easily share work, collaborate, and spend
more time doing analysis instead of debugging packages.
In addition to adding support for Windows package binaries, the 1.1.2 release
- Eviction policies that make it easier for administrators to manage the amount of utilized space.
- Package binaries and system dependencies are now available for CentOS/RHEL 8
- A migration utility to help upgrade from a single node installation to a highly available installation using Postgres.
- A performance improvement that prevents increased CPU usage over time on installations using SQLite.
Please review the full release notes.
Upgrading to 1.1.2 from 1.1.0 is a minor upgrade. However, be aware that this
upgrade may take up to 30 minutes to complete. If you are upgrading a multi-node
installation, allow the first node to update completely before upgrading other
nodes. If you are upgrading from an earlier version, be sure to consult the release notes for the
intermediate releases, as well.
