The latest version of R (2.15.3) is now available for Ubuntu. You can find the packages on CRAN or via my Launchpad PPA.

Just before the release of 2.15.3, a patch for “r-base” was released dealing with MD5 sums in the package the caused some problems on Quantal, but those have been resolved.

Also, a change in the version of “libtiff-dev” dependency caused some delays in the versions of “r-base” for Ubuntu releases prior to Quantal from building. Those issues have been resolved as well and the 2.15.3 is or will soon be available on the CRAN mirrors.

If there are any issues, please feel free to contact me.
