The biggest complaint we had during the installation process was that Xcode (account required) and Rtools were required for MacOS X and Windows. Today we released universal binaries (PPC/i386/x86_64) for MacOS 10.5+ as well as binaries (i386/x86_64) for Windows. This addition will significantly reduce the amount of time it takes to install RTextTools.
We’re gearing up to unveil RTextTools next Friday in Catania. See you there!
